Most of the veggie burger recipes we’ve shared in the past have contained gluten, so I wanted to do something gluten-free for those of you that can’t eat seitan. However, that being said, these walnut veggie burgers are just plain good, period; whether you eat gluten or not. In fact, they’re not just good, they’re outstanding.

This was my first time using nuts as one of my main ingredients for a veggie burger, and I was really surprised how much the patties came out looking just like a real hamburger. They also tasted somewhat like a real hamburger, which was another surprise to me because I wasn’t trying to emulate beef. I’m just considering it a happy accident.
The burgers have an earthy flavor. No doubt thanks to the walnuts, which also served as a nice binder. The texture came out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, sort of like falafel. I could see this burger going well with a wide variety of toppings and condiments, but since I had just made olive and mushroom tapenade, and smoked paprika aioli, that’s what I decided to put on them, and man, were they good.
My only regret is that I didn’t make a larger batch, because right now I’m craving another one of these but I finished them off days ago.
