The "Other" Burger

Rhonda Tackett


I got tired of buying veggie burgers in my pursuit to becoming healthier. I knew there had to be a simple formula to make them great at home.

You can make a burger for any occasion with this recipe. I have taken the guess work out of veggie burgers and presented it to you in a easy step by step recipe.

Have fun with your versions!
