chipotle veggie burgers – Hungry Happens

I had been craving veggie burgers now for weeks. This is a revamp of my old school recipe. And of course we needed to make a 3 course meal of the thing. I highly recommend the add ons I used. This was epic.

Also, I always double this recipe .. it has some prep work so you might as well. They are perfect for meal prep and they reheat amazingly.


  • 1 cup quinoa (COOKED)
  • 3 tbs bbq sauce
  • 1 tbs canned chipotle pepper, minced
  • 1 tbs molasses
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can black beans, drained, rinsed & mashed
  • 1 carrot, shredded
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced (or 1/4 cup of any onion)
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (or oats)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 425 F.

Combine the bbq sauce, chipotle pepper and molasses in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the quinoa, mashed beans, jalapeño, shallot, garlic, carrot, breadcrumb, cumin, salt n pepper, and egg. Add to it 2/3 of the bbq sauce/chipotle/molasses mixture.

Form 5 burger patties and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20-25 minutes – FLIPPING MIDWAY THROUGH.

****use the remaining bbq sauce mixture as a spread on the burger/bun – heavenly.

Assemble your burger as desired… I used the following fixins:

  • kaiser roll
  • waffle sweet potato fries
  • tomato slices
  • avocado slices
  • red onion slices
  • pepper jack cheese
  • mayo & mustard sauce

Yields 5 patties.

…delicious happens
