Veggie Burgers

Veggie burgers are SO easy to make, and taste amazing….they can be frozen, or eaten any meal of the day.  They are my new favorite treat, plus there are no rules to them, just about anything can go from quinoa, rice, lentils, beans, to GF bread crumbs, veggies, mushrooms and juice pulp, all you need is a little imagination and creativity!!!

Ever had an egg on a burger before?!  Well it works the same on a black bean burger, delicious open face southwestern style breakfast.

    I have been vegan for 3 years at this point. Before that I had been a vegetarian for approximately 8 months. I really like my healthier life-style and highly recommend the idea to absolutely everyone.

    I love the vegan lifestyle!!! Have you ever checked out Choosing Raw. It is a wonderful raw/vegan website. I tend to eat seasonally so almost vegan in the summer with the exception of honey, fish and eggs. However, all of my sources are local so very chemical free. However, lots and lots of veggies!!!!
