Veggie Burger

As a vegetarian there is no more fun way to eat vegetables than to make a tasty veggie burger snuggled inside a soft bun. (Or atop of a salad).  The veggie burger allows you to be creative with vegetables and spices to create a unique flavored, nutritionally rich food entrée.  They can add excitement and creativity to a dinner (or lunch).  They freeze well, and are therefore a way to protect you from dinner monotony.  This kind of multi attribute, nutritionally rich food item is a perfect THPL foot item.

And while there are a lot of great veggie burgers to buy in the grocery there are none that are nearly as good as what you can make at home and great veggie burgers are easy to make. You need a sturdy base — I like beans and some sort of grain, like cooked brown rice — plus binders and seasoning. When I make them I use eggs as a binder, but if you’re vegan, you can just omit it.  You should cut up the veggie mix small and then mix the base, the veggies and your preferred spices.  The results in a very tasty, custom, creative and interesting burger.  Every time I have made them I find that once you take your first bite you are compelled to take another and another bite until your plate is just crumbs and swipes of condiments and joy.
