Delicious Vegan Bagel Burger


I love making this bagel burger whenever I am in the mood for something really filling. I can only eat half of this at a time, so I get to save the other half for when I get hungry later in the day. If you know me, you know that I love to cook once and eat twice, so this is definitely a winner for me! You can dress this up however you would like, but I’ll share what I usually add.

I picked up the bagel from a gluten-free bakery by my house. This is an onion bagel and it’s gluten-free, vegan, and delicious! I like the Poblano Black Bean burgers from the Engine 2 brand, which are sold at Whole Foods. The Engine 2 diet is based off Rip Esselstyn’s book, which is based off Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn’s research (Dr. Esselstyn is Rip’s father). Dr. Esselstyn and Rip both follow a healthy plant-based diet, filled with lots of yummy fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, legumes, etc. I’ve read My Beef with Meat and enjoyed it, and I’d recommend getting to know Rip and Dr. Esselstyn a bit better :).


Vegan, Gluten-free

1 bagel (I used a vegan, gluten-free bagel)

1 vegan burger patty

1 small tomato

1/2 small avocado

Greens (I usually use organic spinach, organic kale, or organic lettuce of some sort)


Follow Your Heart Vegan Thousand Island Dressing (I add just a bit, but you can feel free to use whatever you like – or to omit a sauce altogether :))

Dash of Black Pepper


Toast the bagel, add tomato slices to one half of the bagel and sprinkle some black pepper on top, and then add some pickle slices, your burger patty, a bit of dressing (if you’re using some), avocado, and greens. Put the other half of the bagel on top and enjoy!
