These homemade Quorn burgers are so good that they were shared by Quorn themselves, to all their followers on their Facebook page. Thank you to Quorn for that endorsement of my recipe!

And I’m convinced that you too will love these burgers as they taste absolutely amazing AND they’re only 270 calories each!

That’s the thing about Quorn. Not only is it a fantastic healthy alternative to meat but it’s also really versatile.

In our efforts to reduce to a minimum the red meat we eat in our diets, and to try and eat as close as possible to a Mediterranean diet, Quorn is something that Lady Lynne and I are turning to more often.

If you haven’t tried Quorn yet, you should. It’s really good for you and it’s high in protein so you’re not loosing out on the protein you would normally get from a meat burger!

I’ve made this recipe both with and without the chilli and we prefer that little bit of heat the chilli gives but that’s our personal preference as noted in the recipe itself.

Feel free to leave the chilli out, particularly if you are making these with children in mind.

Homemade Quorn Burgers Recipe

The other suggestion I’ll make for these homemade Quorn burgers is, after cooking in the pan, you can easily then place the burgers under a grill, top them with cheese and grill them until the cheese is melted.

I’ll confess to you here that I forgot to buy the cheese to do that and to show you in the recipe photographs. But hey, it’s not necessary and without cheese means these are altogether even healthier!

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic finely diced
  • 1 small red chilli finely diced (optional)
  • 300 g Quorn mince, frozen
  • 75 g wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 2 medium sized eggs beaten
  • ½ tsp mild chilli powder optional
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Burger buns with iceberg Lettuce, slices of tomatoes and cucumber to serve
  1. Heat the tsp. olive oil over a medium heat in a large frying pan.
  2. Add the onion, garlic and chilli and gently sauté together, stirring continuously to avoid burning for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the Quorn mince and stir everything together for about 5 minutes until the mince mixture is quite wet, then remove the pan from the heat to allow the mixture to cool a little to be able to be handled.
  4. In a mixing bowl combine the mince mixture, breadcrumbs, beaten eggs, chilli powder, chopped coriander and season with a little salt and pepper.
  5. Using your hands form the mixture into 4 burger patties, coat very lightly with the plain flour and rest, covered in the fridge for at least 20 minutes.
  6. Heat the tbsp. olive oil in the frying pan, and gently cook the burgers on each side until lightly browned.
  7. Serve the burgers in the burger buns, on top of the iceberg lettuce and slices of cucumber, topped with slices of tomato.

Easy tasty homemade Quorn burgers recipe. An ideal vegetarian meat substitute for you or your vegetarian friends cooked on your stove, or on your BBQ.

One Year Ago……

I can’t believe that it’s been a year since I was a volunteer at the Commonwealth Games. It wasn’t until I was checking back on some of my recipes, the Indian scrambled eggs one, that I realised it.

What an amazing time for Glasgow and for the whole of Scotland that was. I look back with such fond memories, and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to take part, and to be part of the games.

Last year, when the games were on at this time we were really fortunate with our weather too. You know I’ve not been able to pull the BBQ out of the shed once yet this year. Lynne and I like to have at least one BBQ with our friends round every year. This recipe was made with the thoughts of that BBQ in mind, but I think it’ll have to be a grill up in the kitchen this year!

More frustratingly I just picked up my Dad yesterday from the bus station in Glasgow. He’s come down from Dundee to help out painting our fence in the back garden, which I started last year, but I haven’t had the time to continue. It’s probably going to be too wet to even venture out of the house. Still, he can sample my new gluten free muffin recipe coming to you on Thursday! 🙂

  1. I haven’t tried Quorn yet! I keep seeing them in the supermarket, but I’ve been “trying” to make my own meatless burgers. Trying, but not succeeding. I think I could handle making these, but I wonder if the flax egg substitute would translate well? I can’t use eggs, and usually flax substitute is okay, but sometimes I doesn’t take Any thoughts?

      Hey Erin. 🙂 I did try the recipe with one egg initially, but I found out it needed two, in order to bind well and to stay together when cooked in the pan.

      Having read up on the Flax Vegan Egg Substitute now, it does seem that it SHOULD be capable of handling being the “binder” in this recipe. Otherwise, if not possibly a little more olive oil, just a tsp. should suffice?

      I’d love to hear how you get on, if you do make these, and your results with what binder you might choose in the end? 🙂

    But maybe not if it does nothing but rain. That would get pretty old, pretty quickly, in my books. I tried the Gardein products earlier this year, but I need to try Quorn next. Usually I just use TVP. Because I’m cheap.

      I welcome any new taste testers into the fold! 🙂

      For my muffin recipe coming on Thursday, I had my new work colleagues trial them, and my Dad is currently working his way through the batch I made at the weekend. 😆

      You would love Quorn, I’m not sure of the availability over there, but it’s pretty big here.

  3. neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

    Thanks Liz. I’m afraid I’m not entirely sure of the availability of Quorn over there. Hopefully you might be able to find it. It’s really versatile and definitely worth giving it a trial. 🙂

  4. quorn?! not sure i’ve ever had that – burgers look delicious though!

  5. I’m always looking for a new veggie burger recipe, this one sounds stunning! Love the fresh veggies in there!!

      Thanks Sam. I tried to keep the recipe nice and simple, as well as healthy and veggie, and I’m really pleased with the results. 😀

      Hope you get a chance to make these, and if you do I’d love to hear what you think. 🙂

  6. Those burgers look so thick and juicy! I’ve never had Quorn before – clearly I am missing out!
    Hoping it dries out some so your dad can help paint that fence – and so looking forward to those gluten free muffins tomorrow!

      Hi Shashi, I don’t think Quorn is quite so popular there in the U.S. as it is here in the U.K, but I checked and you can definitely get it there. Or at least there’s a website anyway!

      Thanks for asking about my Dad’s fence painting. He did manage to get some done, but it’s pretty much rained solid here over the last 72 hours, so he’s away home now. Which is typical as the sun is out now. 😉

      Off to make final muffin recipe write up tweaks. I think you’ll like this one, it’s made with one of your favourite ingredients! 🙂

  7. Shelly McCorry says:

    They look great,I’m gonna try them this weekend 🙂

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Looking forward to hearing all about how you got on Shelly. 🙂

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment here too. 😀

  8. Can you Freeze these?

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Hi Zoszka, thanks for your question.

      Yes, you can freeze these. 🙂

      • Thank you, looking forward to making these tonight! Would you recommend freezing them before or after cooking them for the final time?

        • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

          I prefer to freeze them before cooking, I haven’t actually tried them frozen after cooking.

          Hope you enjoy, thanks for making my recipe! 😀

  9. Easy and yummy! Thank you for this recipe. I cook quorn all the time for my vego I husband while I eat real meat but these were so good I had them too and leftovers for breakfast!

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Hi Dominique thank you so much for taking the time to comment and with your very kind comments too. I’m so glad that you liked the recipe and your husband too. I love how you had the leftovers for breakfast, ha ha that’s brilliant! 😆

      Let me know if you get a chance to try out any of my other Quorn recipes on your husband. I always value the feedback because it helps other users see how easy the Quorn recipes are to incorporate into their lives even if their not completely vegetarian but are maybe trying to cut down a little on red meat consumption (as Lynne and I try to do).

  10. Hi Neil, when making the burgers was the quorn frozen or defrosted?

    • neil@neilshealthymeals.com says:

      Hi Debbie, thanks for asking!

      When making the burgers the Quorn is frozen. I’ve updated the recipe to reflect that, just in case anyone asks that too. Thanks very much for pointing that out! 😀
