Veggie Burger

Last night I made my very first veggie burger. They tasted oh so delicious! They were quick and easy to make so I expect to make these tasty burgers often.

Kidney Bean and Quinoa Veggie Burger is a great plant-based option for vegans.

These burgers do not taste like your typical fast food but if you are choosing not to eat meat you can whip these up quickly and have a pretty good burger.

Kidney Bean and Quinoa Veggie Burger

If you’ve been eating store-bought veggie burgers you may have noticed some of the mystery ingredients in those. The craziest thing in the burger is quinoa and I think we can agree that it’s good for you.  If you’d like to try your hand at making your own veggie burger try these.

  1. This sounds great! I am not vegetarian, nor do I plan on it, but I am looking to make the switch occasionally and stop eating so much meat. Thanks for the great recipes!

    They are contaminating the food with hormones, steroids, etc…and have been for decades. They feed grinded up meat to the same animals as well as not properly caring for them which causes them to have infections that they bust open while chopping up the meat in the facilities then place another dead animal in the same pus infected area then sell it to consumers who end up with cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, etc…we have to stop letting them hurt our children!!! Milk is not good for them..nor is the eggs and meat they feed our kids at school. It’s all about MAKING MONEY, LOWERING THE POPULATION, and GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE!! STOP SUPPORTING EVIL!! MAKE A STAND!! PROTEST…STOP GIVING THEM MONEY TO HURT YOU AND YOUR FAMILIES. BRING BACK GOOD HONEST FARMERS WHO LOVED AND CARED FOR WHAT THEY DID. United we stand!!
