How to make the best veggie burger

Welcome back to Sandtondiet and to this week’s recipe on how to make the best ever veggie burger. If you aren’t vegetarian or vegan yourself don’t skip pass this post! If you have anyone in your life that is vegetarian, this quick and easy veggie burger will truly impress them.

This vegan veggie burger is the ultimate burger. It is absolutely loaded with the most gorgeous flavours so that each mouthful is a burst of deliciousness. Even meat eaters will love this one.

The key to a good Veggie burger are the various layers that make up the burger. Each layer adds an essential component to the burger that all compliment each other perfectly.

The “meat” of this burger consists of a large mushroom that has been marinaded and cooked in a BBQ sauce. If you’ve ever heard of a mushroom steak, this is how it’s made. I cooked the mushroom steak in the oven for this Veggie burger but its equally scrumptious cooked on the barbecue /braai.

If Veggie burgers aren’t your thing don’t worry, I have lots of other vegetarian recipes on my blog. These Coconut curried lentils are divine. They are the perfect blend of spices and coconut and are sure to delight. The quick and easy vegetarian sushi burgers are such fun. They are quick and easy to prepare but are so yummy to eat!

Aside from this veggie burger recipe and my other recipes there is lots of other vegetarian cooking inspiration out there. For other vegan inspiration you have to check out Richa Hingle at . I know that i have mentioned her before but each and very one of her recipes are superb! She is incredible creative. Mel McDonald from a Virtual vegan also has fabulous recipes that are truly worth having a look at.

Well that’s all from me today. I hope that you have enjoyed today’s recipe inspiration and look forward to more sharing next week. Leanne xoxo
