Looking for a vegan burger recipe to satisfy your cravings? Look no further, my friend.
I’ve put together a list of the most perfect plant-based patties to be found anywhere, and I just know you’re going to fall in love with them.
The only downside to this post is that you might find yourself eating burgers every night of the week. However, as these don’t contain any nasty saturated fat filled meat, maybe that’s not such a downside after all!
