Spicy Thai Veggie Burger Recipe

A while back, I reviewed a cookbook filled with vegetarian recipes that would appeal to even the most carnivorous of meat eaters, and one of the recipes that appealed to me in a big, big way was the Spicy Thai Peanut Veggie Burger recipe. Fortunately, our friends at The High-Protein Vegetarian Cookbook were all too happy to share the full recipe with us!
Now, it is a long ingredient list, to be fair, but some things are definitely worth a little extra shopping, right?

Serves: 6
Spicy Thai veggie burgers are packed with fresh, healthy ingredients and so much flavor!
  • 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons Thai red curry paste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons creamy no-sugar-added peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1½ teaspoons hot sauce (such as sriracha)
  • 1½ teaspoons soy sauce
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ½ cup shredded carrot
  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup roasted peanuts, finely chopped
  • ½ red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 6 whole wheat burger buns
  • Lime Soy Slaw
  • 2 cups chopped savoy cabbage
  • Juice of ½ lime (1 tablespoon)
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine the chickpeas, red curry paste, garlic, peanut butter, honey, salt, ginger, hot sauce, and soy sauce in a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is mostly smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the cilantro, carrot, red onion, peanuts, and red bell pepper. Add the egg and stir until it’s fully incorporated. Stir in the flour.
  3. Shape the dough into six patties and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. The mixture will be very sticky, so you may need to wipe off your hands after you form each patty. Coat the top of the patties with cooking spray.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip, coat again with cooking spray, and bake for another 15 minutes.
  5. While the patties bake, mix together all of the slaw ingredients in a large bowl.
  6. Place each patty on a toasted whole wheat bun, then top with the slaw. Red pepper slices and cilantro are great add-ons as well.
