9 of the Best Ever Vegan Lentil Burgers
Here is a list of the 9 best vegan lentil burgers that will make you choose to eat vegan whether you already eat vegan or not. Oh yes, burgers, Vegan or not, we have to have a burger every now and then, so you will want to try some of these Vegan Lentil Burgers.
I have quite a healthy appetite, which is probably one of the reasons I pack on the pounds easily! But even for someone, such as myself, who loves food and everything involving food, I was quite the food snob. I turned up my nose on recipes that were out of my comfort zone, for example, who puts lentils in a burger?
But even WORSE than that, who makes a burger ENTIRELY out of LENTILS!!! That’s insane!! It’s actually not, but a few years ago I would have banished it to the depths of the recipe barrel, way down at the bottom.
Now, I love lentil burgers! How did I become fascinated with Vegan Lentil Burgers? Well, I can thank some food show that I watched: this guy visited a variety of restaurants all around the U.S., and he stopped by a Vegan restaurant where people line up to have their homemade lentil burger, it’s considered one of the best lentil burgers.
My husband and I were so intrigued (mind you, he’s a TOTAL carnivore) that we headed over to see what all the hype was about. Now we are hooked! Moist, delicious, flavor, me oh my!
So today, ladies and gents, children of all ages, I’ve compiled the ONLY list you’ll ever need to create a delicious meal. You don’t have to be Vegan to want to try these Vegan Lentil Burger Recipes. Enjoy!
1. Lentil Burger – Contentedness Cooking
Mustard – Maple Syrup – Curry – Lentils – Raisins – Bread Crumbs
These burgers only use 4 ingredients so that makes them pretty easy to make for that reason alone. They are quite tasty with the spicy and sweet flavor of the creamy maple-flavored mustard sauce on top.
2. Lentil Walnut Burgers – Vegan Richa
Red Onions – Garlic – Ginger – Walnuts – Cilantro – Real Salt – Cumin – Coriander – Garam Masala – Basil – Rice – Lentils – Ketchup – Flaxseed Meal – Breadcrumbs
These burgers are made with special spices and walnuts, covered with an avocado ranch dressing. They are soy-free which I’m happy about. You can also sever them over a salad. They are especially good with juicy tomatoes, lettuce, pickled jalapeno, and onions. Another option is to load them with caramelized onions. The flavor of the earthy lentils goes really good with the sweet onions. You can also use any vegan mayo, BBQ sauce or ketchup you’d like. To make the ranching dressing you mix 1 cup vegan mayo or cashew cream with ranch dressing mix.
3. Vegan Beet Burgers – It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken
Beets – Oats – Lentils – Flour – Onion – Garlic – Peanut Butter – Thyme – Real Salt
I love the intense color of these burgers but what is really nice about these is how the beets provide a rich deep earthiness to the burgers. There is so much depth of flavor. The lentils and oats make a really good base. The most interesting part is you add a bit of peanut butter which adds some fat to balance everything and some richness with balances everything perfectly. The dough is sticky but once it’s cooked it gets nice and firm. This is not a mushy burger.
4. Red Lentil, Smashed Chickpea and Millet Burgers – Veggie and the Beast
Lentils – Millet – Real Salt – Olive Oil – Garlic – Onion – Bell Pepper – Chickpeas – Carrot – Chili Powder – Cumin – Oregano – Mustard – Pepitas – Oats – Flour – Flax Egg
Chewy millet smashed chickpeas and red lentils make up this base. Oats, pepitas, carrots, and green peppers add extra flavor and texture Garbanzo bean flours was added to make them easier to handle and to dry out the moister a little bit. All-purpose flour would work too. The combination of spices is the perfect combination of spicy, salty, and zesty but you can play around with them a little bit if you’d like. If you like yours crunchy you can fry them on the stovetop after they are finished baking. You can skip that step and eat them right out of the oven if you’re in a hurry or just can’t wait to eat them.
5. BBQ Lentil Veggie Burger with Mango Carrot Slaw – Vegan Richa
Mango – Carrot – Cabbage – Veganaise – Lentils – Garlic Powder – BBQ Sauce – Cauliflower – Carrots – Garlic – Ginger – Green Chili – Broccoli – Red Bell Pepper – Chipotle Pepper Powder – Onion Flakes – Cumin – Flaxmeal – Sesame Seeds – Chickpea Flour – Breadcrumbs
If you love BBQ sauce this is the recipe for you. These patties are made with pink/red lentils which cook up really quick. You cook the lentils with BBQ sauce and then there is more BBQ sauce added to the patty mixture. There is a bunch of grated roasted veggies added to the mixture which add a lot of flavor and texture. Then you make the mango carrot slaw and serve it on top. Talk about flavors mixed together!
6. Lentil Sloppy Joes – The Pretty Bee
Olive Oil – Green Lentils – Onion – Tomato Sauce – Mustard – Apple Cider Vinegar – Sugar – Real Salt – Black Pepper – Cumin – Chili Powder – Garlic Powder – Paprika – Hamburger Buns
In case you’re wondering, Yes I do consider a sloppy Joe a burger. Since these are made with lentils. I think they are a welcome change in the vegan diet. After eating lentil burgers and black bean burgers I think these are a great idea. They have a lot of advantages. You don’t have to worry about making them stick together and stay in the shape of a patty. You don’t need to add all the ingredients that make them stick together either. You can just mix all the ingredients together in a pan and serve them up. If you miss sloppy Joes this is what you’ve been looking for.
7. Lentil Nacho Burgers – Connoisseurus Veg
Lentils – Onion – Garlic – Walnuts – Panko Breadcrumbs – Red Wine Vinegar – Cumin – Chili Powder – Cayenne Pepper – Tahini – Almond Milk – Nutritional Yeast Flakes – Sriracha Hot Sauce – Real Salt
This burger is seasoned with Tex-Mex spices and lentils. They are topped with nacho sauce that is made from tahini. You can add whatever else you like to put on your nachos. This blogger used red onions, avocado slices, salsa, and jalapeno slices. Guacamole would be really good too if you’re up for that.
8. Swiss Chard Lentil Quinoa Burgers – Light Orange Bean
Quinoa – Lentils – Swiss Chard – Cilantro – Oat Flour – Corn Starch – Real Salt – Cumin – Canola Oil – Tahini
The main ingredients to make these are lentils, Swiss chard, and quinoa. Quinoa is a complete protein that is a naturally gluten-free grain. Not only do they provide carbohydrates and extra protein to the burgers they also make a very chewy texture. They make a great snack for kids since they are easy to cut up into pieces. Some tahini and chopped cilantro lived up the flavor and give it a fragrant nutty refreshing taste. After they are baked they are nice and chewy yet soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
9. Savory Lentil-Mushroom Burgers – Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen
Chia Seeds – Onion – Mushrooms – Garlic – Lentils – Oats – Cornstarch – Soy Sauce – Tomato Paste – Oregano – Basil – Paprika – Thyme
This doesn’t have a lot of fancy stuff mixed in. It’s just a plain old burger that you can put some pickled and ketchup on. Kids don’t like it when flavors clash, they like simple. So I included this recipe for the kids. Some lettuce, sprouts, and onion were added to make it as normal as possible.
9 of the Best Vegan Black Bean Recipes
Vegan Black Bean Recipes are Sooooo Yummy! I know Vegan black bean recipes can be a pretty broad spectrum. That’s why I tried to have a good variety. I have soup, one-dish meals, nachos, taquitos, enchiladas, and salads vegan black bean recipes here. I love black beans, I really like the taste much better than kidney beans.
Black beans are very healthy for you. But how good are they for you and why? Black beans are very high in fiber, folate, protein, and antioxidants. Black beans also have numerous other vitamins and minerals and make a complete protein when paired with brown rice.
That is probably why they are so commonly included in a vegan diet. Many Mexican and South American dishes also include black beans and rice. Plus beans are fairly inexpensive and easy to cook, especially if all you do is open a can of them.
Anyone will enjoy these recipes not just those on a vegan diet.

These easy tacos have a lot of my favorite flavors into one. I love the combination of lime and cilantro together and you can’t go wrong with black beans and corn.

Black Beans – Brown Rice – Sweet Potatoes – Red Onion – Cilantro – Veganaise – Real Salt – Cumin – Garlic Powder – Smoked Paprika – Paprika – Olive Oil – Jalapeno – Curry Powder – Lemon Juice
These burgers can be used in so many different ways. Izzy has grilled them, yes you read that right. They can be grilled. She has also crumbled them up and put them in taco salad. She’s even eaten them raw I assume after the sweet potatoes and brown rice are cooked. She says the smoked paprika and the curry cilantro mayonnaise really kicked them up a notch to another level.
2. Smoky Tempeh Black Bean Burgers – Full of Plants
Oil – Onion – Garlic – Carrot – Red Bell Pepper – Soy Sauce – Maple Syrup – Almond Flour – Tomato Paste – Almond Butter – Black Beans – Cumin – Oregano – Smoked Paprika – Liquid Smoke – Tempeh – Sriracha – Tahini – Real Salt
Tempeh and black beans mixed together to create a really good texture. With sauteed onion added to the base and a little bit of flour and corn starch, it all sticks together nicely. It’s really easy to make since it has just 7 ingredients. It will take about 25 minutes to make them from start to finish. When you put them on a toasted bun with caramelized onion, sriracha mayo, sliced avocado, your favorite greens and fresh tomatoes your mouth will be in heaven.
4. Smoky Black Bean Burgers with Guacamole and Plantain Chips – Connoisseurus Veg
Red Onion – Garlic – Jalapeno – Black Beans – Panko Breadcrumbs – Cilantro – Lime Juice – Liquid Smoke – Cumin – Chipotle Chili Powder – Chili Powder – Real Salt – Olive Oil
What makes these burgers special? It’s the plantain chips and the guacamole! The plantain chips are very addictive. You might want to make a double batch because they might be gone before you get to put them on the burger if you don’t. The guacamole is right at home on a sandwich especially with these plantain chips on there too. It’s kind of like eating chips and dip on a burger. Yummy
The burger is all about the cilantro lime sauce. It’s a really good topper on a spicy burger like this since it is cool and tangy. When this sauce is on the burger it is what I call a messy, smash it down burger with a messy sauce that drips down your chin. Keep a lot of napkins close by and don’t be afraid of it. Just smash it down and dive in.
Brita set out to create a burger that holds together well and doesn’t fall apart when you take the first bite. She says she accomplished that goal. Yeah for Brita! After the quinoa is cooked you just blend everything else together and cook them up in a skillet. Easy Peasy. Since all the ingredients are already cooked you don’t really need to fry these up for very long. Just long enough to get them heated through and have a nice little crust on the outside. Cooking them less will keep them from getting dried out.
When you first look at these you might think they are made with raw ground beef but that definitely isn’t the case. They packed full of beets. They are topped with a balsamic glaze which adds a touch of sweetness and a bunch of zip. I think the beets add a ton of color and flavor and moistness. Did you know that beets are actually really good for you? My grandma said they make your blood red but I think she was just kidding me.
