The Best Veggie Burger with Wholesome Ingredients

These vibrant and tasty Veggie Burgers  are the perfect vegetarian alternative to a traditional burger. They are the best veggie burgers I have tried so far.

Made with wholesome ingredients, they are easy to prepare. They will satisfy your appetite. These meaty patties are nutritious and a good meatless meal. They are also low in calories.

These easy-to-assemble burgers can be shaped ahead of time and cooked off when you’re ready to eat.

Make these veggie burgers several hours in advance,  and chill them so they have a chance to firm up a little before cooking.

Chickpeas: 
Chickpea, like all legumes, is a naturally rich food vegetable protein with  several vitamins,  minerals and dietary fiber. In addition, it is low in fat, and like all plant foods it contains no cholesterol. Not need to be vegetarian to enjoy its flavor and its benefits!

    These were delicious! I added a bit of very finely chopped onion but followed the recipe otherwise. Will definitely make them again!
