Recipe: Vegan Veggie Burger Salad

While I love going to vegan restaurants, I often order food there that is time-consuming or difficult to make myself. Sometimes going to a non-vegan restaurant can be very inspiring, especially if you have to get creative with the sides, picking and choosing ingredients from the non-vegan items. I came up with this salad when I couldn't eat a typical veggie burger on a bun, so instead I asked for the burger on a salad. I liked it so much that I created my own version at home! I usually eat this salad 3-4 times a week.

Ingredients (1 serving):
  • One veggie burger (such as Sunshine black bean)
  • 3-4 cups mixed greens (loosely packed)
  • 1-2 tbsp dressing (I recommend balsalmic or raspberry
  • 1/3-1/2 carrot, sliced into rounds
  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced into rounds
  • 1/2 apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans
  • Hemp seeds to garnish
  1. Heat veggie burger in a small skillet.
  2. While veggie burger is cooking, add mixed greens to a bowl and drizzle with dressing. Mix with a fork or tongs.
  3. Place greens on a plate.
  4. Chop carrot, cucumber, and apple and sprinkle over salad greens.
  5. Shake garbanzo beans out over salad (be sure to strain any liquid off first).
  6. When veggie burger is cooked, slice into thin pieces and sprinkle over salad.
  7. Top with hemp seeds.
  • Try different types of dressings and burgers for different flavors.
  • Change fruits/veggies out with the seasons.
  • Add another type of beans and/or lentils instead of a veggie burger.
