Sinking your teeth into a fat veggie burger is one of life’s joys.  The bun, the burger, the pickles, and the condiments all align to make a filling meal for all kinds of occasions.  Burgers are great at parties, barbeques, for a quick mid-week dinner, and for when you just need a good solid comfort food treat.

Veggie burgers have been on the up and up lately, and there are tons of ways to make a homemade patty that is flavorful, just the right texture, and nutritious, too.  Plus, making your burger the protein portion of your meal is not hard to do.
