Let me start out by saying; I am not a vegetarian. I just choose to eat as healthy as I can. Some days that means enjoying a meat free meal. These burgers are so delicious, I actually crave them. Loaded with 3 kinds of beans, sautéed vegetables and my favorite southwestern flavors, this burger will blow your mind.
Power House Veggie Burgers
I love to make a batch of these and freeze them, I take them out one at a time and enjoy them on a bun, or with a couple of sides in place of meat. My munchkin ate one today (no bun) with mashed potatoes and corn. I really enjoy feeding her a healthier burger.
Real quick funny story: We went to dinner last week with some friends and I ordered a hamburger for my munchkin. When I handed it to her, she got excited and said “Is this a bean burger, mommy?”. Disappointment set in when I told her no, but she did eat a few bites of her burger. It made me so happy that even my picky ‘almost 3’ year old would prefer this veggie burger over a beef burger.
Even meat lovers will devour this one.
