Vegan cheese ( opt) ( see notes*)


And whatever else floats your boat

Heat up a small skillet, on med heat and add little oil, S&P and saute your onions for 5 minutes or so then set aside.Add the bulgar to a soup bowl and add 1 cup boiling water, cover,  and set aside for 30 minutes

Pre-heat oven 350°In your Food Processor, process your mushrooms, making them quite small but not mushy ( see video),and add to a large mixing bowl. Then add the sautéed onions, seasonings and liquids.

Drain the bulgar well and add when ready( it will be very chewy, but that’s good) Mix it all together.

Lastly add in the Vital Wheat Gluten, and stir until combined and then mix by hand for 2 – 4 min. It is ready when you see strands forming in the burger mix.

Form 1/2 cup patties on a lightly oiled large (or parchment lined) non stick sheet tray. Spray tops of patties lightly with cooking spray.

Bake the patties for 25 min, flipping them  halfway through

Remove the patties from the oven add cheese and grill for a couple of minutes, ( cheese is optional)

 Grab a Burger and a bun and build your Burgers.


OVEN: preheat 350° cook burgers 5-7 minutes on each side.

STOVE TOP: heat a cast iron or non stick skillet on med heat, add a tbsp or so of oil, cook 3-5 minutes on  each side.

GRILL: heat the grill to med/high heat, and lightly oil (pre cooked) burgers, grill 3-5 minutes  each side.


  • To freeze the vegan hamburger patties: first cook and cool on counter then in fridge, then wrap individually in plastic wrap and freeze
  • Recommended: cook burgers first in oven then bbq if desired
  • Follow Your Heart vegan cheeses, the Jalapeño Havarti is really good, cheddar is too, and I like the Daiya Jalapeño Havarti as well,and its cheaper.
