Chickpea Veggie Burgers and Other Vegetarian Burgers for Meatless Monday

August 4, 2014

The summer is not over yet which means burgers are still a completely acceptable meal option.  Carnivores might disagree but a good homemade veggie burger can be just as flavorful and satisfying as its meaty counterpoint.  Veggie patties can be made from just about anything so long as there is a binding agent.  Sometimes this is in the form of smashed beans, pureed sweet potato, or an egg and breadcrumbs.  You can pile on the toppings and condiments just as you would with any other burger to create something wonderful and delicious.
