Want a healthy burger? If so then you obviously want a vegan burger. But it needs to taste amazing and wow everyone who eats it. Let’s be honest about vegan food, no matter how healthy something is, it really isn’t healthy if no one eats it.
Burgers, the ultimate fast food delicacy. Even as a child, I have always heard health conscious individuals who criticize this meal because of how much harm it does to the body than good. My mother would always tell me that I should not eat burgers from a fast food chain. My mother wasn’t vegan but even she know how bad they are.
It has been several years since I have eaten burgers that were not made by me. I would like to share to this recipe to you: a vegan burger. With the proper substitution and cooking, you can turn the unhealthy to healthy. In about 30 minutes, you can have this delicious vegan meal and share it with your friends whether they are vegan or not.
Just last week we made this and my 12 year old nephew loved it! When I told him it was vegan he was pretty surprised because he usually makes “Eww” noises at me when I talk about vegan food.
