Vegan Burger recipe
“Creamy” Chipotle ketchup

½ tsp chipotle powder
1 tbsp mustard
1 tbsp agave nectar

Directions:

vegan burger pattyIn a medium bowl mix together soyrizo, jalepeno, chipotle, paprika, onion powder, garlic salt, black beans and corn. Add corn muffin mix ¼ cup at a time until it reaches a consistency that you can form into patties.

Wrap patties in non-stick aluminum foil and grill for 10 minutes on each side until it’s crispy on the outside.

While patties are grilling, toss bell peppers and onion in olive oil and sauté in a grilling pan.

To make the ketchup, mix all ingredients and set aside. (Yep it’s that easy!)

*Tip: Use up the rest of the jalepeno, canned corn and black beans by making a salad on the side. Just add diced tomatoes, cilantro, rice vinegar, salt and pepper.

Top burger patties with sliced avocado, chipotle ketchup and fajita veggies. Wrap in lettuce, and enjoy! For more grilling recipes, follow our Pinterest board.
