White Bean Burgers with Carrots, Peanuts and thai flavors. Topped with sweet and sour Butternut squash. Asian Peanut Bean Burgers. Serve as Burgers or make a bowl with greens, and roasted butternut or sweet potato. Vegan Gluten free Option.
Are we all ready for Summer already? I am quite tired of the rain in PNW. Who am I kidding, Spring isnt going to be fun. Thankfully now I know I am not the only person who has a barometer in her sinuses.
Anywho, lets get to this easy and delicious Peanut and White Bean Burger topped with roasted squash or sweet potato that is tossed in sweet and sour sauce and sriracha. As with most veggie burgers, these can easily be made into wraps or served in a bowl with greens and more of the sweet sour sriracha dressing. These Asian flavored burger patties with Peanuts, carrots, celery are crunchy, peanutty and fun. Use other nuts or toasted sunflower seeds or pepitas to make nut-free. A dressing of sweet sour or a bbq sauce take these to another level.
Make these patties and let me know on Instagram or here how you served them!

Peanut Carrot White Bean Burgers
- 1/4 cup (36.5 g) unroasted unsalted peanuts
- 1/2 (0.5) heaping cup carrots 1 inch pieces
- 1/4 cup (25.25 g) chopped celery
- 15 oz (425.24 g) can white beans 1.25 cups cooked
- 1 Tbsp finely minced ginger
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 1/2 tsp (0.5 tsp) garlic powder
- 2 tsp rice vinegar
- 1.5 tsp soy sauce or liquid aminos tomake soy-free
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp agave or maple
- 1 tsp sriracha or to taste
- 1 Tbsp peanut butter or almond butter
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 2 Tbsp flaxmeal
- 2-4 Tbsp (2 Tbsp) regular flour or Oat flour for glutenfree.
- Burger buns or wraps
- Crunchy veggies such as cabbage
- Roasted butternut squash or sweet potato
- Sauces for topping
- Pulse the peanuts until coarse meal(a few broken peanuts are fine, do not over process). Add carrots and celery and pulse until riced. Add the beans and pulse until half of the beans are mashed.
- Remove from the processor to a bowl. Add the ginger, garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, agave, sriracha, peanut butter, sesame seeds, flaxmeal. Mix until well combined. Taste and adjust spice, sweet ans salt. You might need salt if the beans were unsalted. Add 2 Tbsp flour and mix well. the dough should not be too sticky or too dry (slightly sticky, moist but not wet dough works best). Add more flour if needed.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F / 200ºc. Shape into patties using a cookie cutter. Press 1/3 cup of the mixture into a 3 inch cookie cutter. Press to pack well then push through onto parchment to make 3 inch by 3/4 inch patties. Brush oil on top and bake for 20 mins at 400 F/ 200ºc. Flip and bake for 5 more minutes if needed.
- For the picture I paired these with roasted butternut tossed in sweet and sour sauce + sriracha and crunchy cabbage. (Bring the sweet and sour ingredients with the cornstarch slurry to a boil, add sriracha to taste). Other combinations could be roasted butternut or sweet potato cubes tossed in bbq sauce, mango cubes tossed in sweet bbq sauce. both of these enhance the flavors of the patty. To tone down the flavors of the patties, pair them with cole slaw, sriracha mayo or ranch dressing. Make it into a bowl with smaller patties, roasted veggies, lettuce or other crunchy greens, and sauces from above.
These were great, even though I messed up the recipe a bit! I used my homemade “cans” of beans (which are 1.5 cups of beans, not 1.25 cups). Sooo, I was a little heavy on the beans. I had also doubled the recipe and so I ended up with eight gigantic burgers that were too wet, due to excess beans. I plopped them on parchment paper, stuck them in the over for 30 minutes (I didn’t dare turn them) and hoped for the best. They were fantastic! I’m going to make them the right way next time and I bet they’ll be even better! It’s a wonderful blend of flavors. And, I can vouch for the fact that you can use too many beans and they still make a nice burger. I wasn’t sure what to top them with, but now I’m thinking cashew ranch dressing, hot sauce and cabbage would be perfect. The butternut squash idea is intriguing though.

good to know – thanks!!
I made these yesterday, and they were delicious! If you love that ‘hint of peanut’ taste, you’ll LOVE these! The texture was great after it was cooked and in the bun. I had to cook mine a bit longer for some reason — I did 10 minutes on the ‘other side’ in the oven instead of just 5, and it came out perfect.

yay – thanks Diane
Hi Richa! I made these last night, and they were delicious!! I love the thai flavor with the burgers – so unique! My husband gave them a thumbs-up as well!
I want to move into your FB page and eat everything you post. That simple.
wow, this is beautiful
So good. My new favorite veggie burger. Immensely better than the frozen ones from the store. I used chickpeas instead of white beans.
They look and sound really good. 🙂 Is it possible to form them by hand, or do you need the cookie cuter, because they will fall apart without?
yes you can, just pack them well and bake them. baking allows for less sturdy burgers which might be prone to breaking if pan fried
Ehrm… Just yum! This looks so amazing! I’m always on the lookout for great vegan burgers so I’ll definitely give this one a try!
What can be substitute for sriracha if we don’t have it? Likewise can u suggest some Indian toppings?
You can use imli chutney. the date tamarind chutney is similar profile as sweet and sour sauce or bbq saue here, so in general you can substitute that depending on the recipe. For sriracha, you can use any of the hot chile garlic sauce options here like hot and sweet sauce or chili sauce. use toppings that you normally use in burgers or with cutlets. some sliced tomato, onion, cucumber, cilantro etc.
I made these with whatever I had and they turned out amazing. The pairing with with roasted butternut is perfect!
My eyes got huge when I saw this. i think i already have most of the ingredients on hand already. and carrots are one of my FAVE veggie burger ingredients. I’m definitely trying this next time that I’m craving a veg burg and am too lazy to come up with my own. Pinning!
