Are these freezable?

Yes, Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Veggie Burgers are generally freezable. Freezing them can be a convenient way to have ready-to-cook burgers on hand for quick and easy meals. Here’s how you can freeze them:

Freezing Instructions:

  • Shape and Cook: Prepare and cook the veggie burgers according to the recipe instructions.
  • Cool: Allow the cooked burgers to cool completely before freezing. This helps prevent moisture buildup and ice crystals during freezing.
  • Wrap Individually: Individually wrap each cooled burger in plastic wrap or parchment paper. This prevents them from sticking together and makes it easier to thaw only the number of burgers you need.
  • Arrange in Layers: Place the wrapped burgers in a single layer on a baking sheet or tray. You can place a piece of parchment paper between layers to prevent sticking.
  • Freeze: Transfer the baking sheet with the wrapped burgers to the freezer. Allow them to freeze until they are firm.
  • Transfer to Storage: Once the burgers are frozen, transfer them to airtight freezer-safe containers or resealable freezer bags. Label the containers with the date for easy reference.

Thawing and Cooking:

When you’re ready to enjoy a frozen burger:

  • Thaw: Remove the desired number of burgers from the freezer and thaw them in the refrigerator overnight.
  • Reheat: To reheat, you can lightly pan-fry the burgers in a skillet with a bit of oil over medium heat until heated through and crispy on the outside.

By freezing Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Veggie Burgers, you can have a convenient and delicious plant-based meal option ready to go whenever you need it.

  1. Hello
    I was going to try your Sun-Dried Tomato, Basil and Chickpea Burgers recipe and I noticed in your instruction it said balsamic vinegar. I did not see it in the ingredient list so I was wondering whether it was an opted error or a replacement using the soy sauce?

    1. Hello, Thank you for catching the error. I fixed it. Sorry for the confusion. It was suppose to be lemon juice or balsamic vinegar can be used. The vinegar will give it a richer flavor but some people can not use vinegar and lemon juice works similarly. Hope you enjoy it.
