Does Anyone Have A Meat-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free "veggie Burger" Type Of Thing Recipe?

I'm a vegetarian but I am craving that savory, meaty texture that you can't really get with just veggies. I'd really like to make a veggie burger of sorts, maybe using walnuts as a base? Anybody out there with a recipe?  :D

I like big flat mushrooms grilled for that kind of thing. Or done in foil on a bbq

I have seen some frozen vegetarian burger patties that are also gluten free.  There was one you put in the toaster, I got an advertisement for it in a gluten-free subscription box.  I don't buy those kinds of things so I can't recall any brands.  I would go check out Whole Foods or a similar store you can get to, and just do some label reading and see what you find.  A lot of times some things are so complex to make it is worth buying it, especially if it is a rare treat.  Before I went gluten-free I really liked the chilis black bean burger patty, so maybe you can use a copycat recipe online, and convert it to gluten-free.  Like this one:

It uses eggs and breadcrumbs as the glue to hold it together.  To make gluten-free breadcrumbs just leave a few slices of bread out on the counter to dry out a little, break them up and pulse in a food processor.  If you don't eat eggs, I am not sure what to use.  But your substitute would need to be able to bind everything together.

Thanks folks! Laura TX, I have an egg replacement product that I can use that acts as a binding agent. I will give this a try!

I have also seen veggie burger patty recipes using chick peas and lentils, I am sure any of those you can switch up for as well. It is really economical, too, unlike gluten-free baking, haha, so no stress experimenting. :)

A friend of mine gave this recipe to me. I copy & paste it. You'll need to sub the egg but other than that, I think it's a fit for you.

 

1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed (Somebody makes them seasoned, that's good too)
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped (or red or yellow, or even mixed)
1/2 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, peeled and diced
1 egg
1 tablespoon chili powder (or a little less, depends on how much you like chili flavor, I don't use it if I use seasoned beans)
1 tablespoon cumin (I don't always have this handy, so sometimes it's left out)
1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce or hot sauce (up to you here, too)
1/2 cup bread crumbs (or more, but never less)
 
*If grilling, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. If baking, preheat oven to 375 degrees, and lightly oil a baking sheet.
 
*In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty (fork is better than potato masher).
*In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir into mashed beans.
*In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce.
*Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.
 
*If grilling, place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.
 
And sometimes I fry them in hot oil, but they are a little crumbly unless you refrigerate the mix a few hours before frying. 
 
Sometimes I make a bunch of patties and freeze them, and sometimes I freeze any I have leftover, but they're good no matter how you prepare them. I don't always use a food processor either, but it does make them hold together better, less crumbly. 
 
I found this recipe online last spring, played around with it during the summer, but this is about the best of all I've tried. Sometimes I just throw them together with what I have, minced garlic, a little sea salt, whatever is on hand, they're really easy and very tasty.

    • I sit in an ice bath after a long training (running or riding).  It speeds my recovery, I swear!  
    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
