Whether we're at a restaurant or a weekend barbecue, it always breaks our hearts just a little to get a veggie burger that's little more than a dry, beige puck. There's absolutely no reason the vegetarian option can't be as flavorful, savory, and robust as its carnivorous counterpart — if not even more of a gastronomic delight.

These four veggie burgers are worthy occupants of any bun — no faux-meat here, just fantastically delicious combinations of beans, vegetables, legumes, and grains.

Portobello Burger with Blue Cheese and Sautéed Red Onions

A far cry from the standard grilled-mushroom-cap-as-burger, these ultra-savory portobello patties get a further umami boost from garlic and steak sauce—a perfect match for a flavorful topping of melted blue cheese and tangy caramelized red onions.

Black Bean Burger with Salsa Fresca and Avocado Crema

Cumin, paprika, coriander, and both poblano and chipotle chiles lend their robust flavor to this earthy black bean burger. Dredged in cornmeal, it's a hearty base for a bright salsa fresca and smooth avocado crema.

Roasted Garlic Chickpea Burger

We took inspiration from falafel when developing these burgers — but unlike the dense, often dry deep-fried chickpea fritters, this sautéed patty is both light and rich in texture, with added depth from roasted garlic. Topped with an array of veggies and a sprinkle of feta, it's a perfect weekend lunch.

Quinoa Veggie Burger with Roasted Red Pepper Relish

Our take on a classic meatless burger calls on a slew of vegetables for flavor, color, and texture: carrot, celery, arugula, beans, and—the ingredient that really makes it—quinoa, the high-protein South American grain that has a nutty flavor and toothsome bite. This veggie burger is infinitely versatile when it comes to toppings, but we particularly like it with a cumin-accented relish of roasted red peppers.
