Grill-able Walnut Veggie Burger & Roasted Potato Herb Salad

Impress your veggie-loving friends with these delicious summer recipes. We’re talking walnut veggie burgers that hold together on the grill and a healthy twist on the classic potato salad. Both recipes being perfect for outdoor gatherings and family BBQs (or just a regular night at home).

Veggie burgers can be delicate, making most of them a poor choice for the grill. The goal with this burger was to develop a recipe that holds together nicely, but had a nice texture and was full of flavor. In these patties, you’ll find toasted walnuts, beans, onions, garlic and a few other ingredients for flavor. The patties don’t crumble and are packed with flavor. The walnuts also add a nice little crunch for texture.
