16 Ways to Love Veggie Burgers
These creative burgers are a delicious addition to any cookout. Who needs meat when the veggies taste this good?
Clean Veggie Burgers
Store-bought buns and bread nearly always contain artificial preservatives to help maintain freshness. Instead, buy whole-grain buns from your local bakery, where ingredients are kept clean and simple. Tightly wrap extra buns, and freeze (do not refrigerate--this will cause bread to stale faster) for up to 3 months.
