It should be no secret that I absolutely love burgers. I mean, who doesn’t?

A burger full of flavor & texture, a creamy dressing to go with it and some soft & crispy bread wrapped around it all… I believe it’s a form or art. No, seriously.

I thought it would be fun to create an all green burger, full of all my favorite green foods. This is what I came up with, and I promise you it’s the best burger I’ve ever made.

Just look at it . . .

  1. Woah. This is very, very green. A veggie burger with edamame in it must be awesome! I love all this mix of greenery. Not all veggie burgers are this creative (and to say that in a plant based diet one should have plenty of choice).
    On the list it goes 🙂

  2. Wow, these looks so amazing!!! I have seen the burgers on instagram before and already thought they sounded so yummy!!! And together in a burger like this, even more amazing!! Looks sooooo delicious! Thanks for sharing! 😉

  3. LOVE the look and am super curious about the flavor. Definitely going to try this out (minus the edamame and prob with some added spicy green peppers). I’ve been on such a healthy burger kick.

  4. I made these this weekend for some friends. We all loved them!!! Very easy and great results. Will make again. Thank you!!

  5. Hello (bonjour!)
    J’ai testé ce burger pour un BBQ il y a peu, c’était vraiment excellent! Je n’avais malheureusement pas d’avocat, j’ai donc fais avec une mangue et ça a très bien marché 🙂

    Je refais la recette cette aprem pour un nouveau BBQ, cette fois-ci avec un avocat.
    Mais j’ai une question: avant de les cuire, mes burgers étaient très mous et donc très difficiles à mettre sur la grille, j’ai du les faire à la poêle… Aurais-tu une astuce pour qu’ils “tiennent” mieux leur forme avant de les cuire ?

    Encore merci pour la recette ! 🙂

    (And because I’m not sur you speak french, i’ll be short in english:)
    Hello and thank you! You recipe is really good. But I have a problem, my burgers don’t keep them shape before cooking them. And so, I can’t put them on the BBQ grill without losing them in the fire, I have to cook them in a frying pan. Would you have a solution?

    1. Bonjour Vincent, merci pour ton message. I don’t speak French, but I’m actually taking a French course at the moment. 🙂 I’m glad you liked the burgers. You’re right, they’re fragile. They work great if you just fry them in a pan, but I wouldn’t put them on the BBQ without frying them or baking them first.
