Protein Packed Meatless Veggie Burgers
I've always loved burgers - be it grilled, pan fried, or broiled over live charcoals on a warm sunny afternoon. It must have been the juicy, round pieces of meat smothered with sauce and stacked with veggies and bread that always drew me in, and I couldn't imagine eating burgers made without meat, that is until I've discovered veggie burgers. These are patties made with a mix of finely chopped vegetables, protein-rich grains, fiber, and generously flavoured with spices and herbs, all blended into satisfying your burger cravings without the guilt.
While they have been around for years, they haven't become mainstream until the past few years. They've been popular with vegetarians for a long time, but just recently getting the limelight as the search for healthier alternatives for processed food takes on new heights. For people who want to lose the bloated feeling from eating too much meat (we all do eat too much, actually), and those who wish to go on a diet but can't seem to give up food, this might just work for you.
Vegetable burgers also have a lot more nutrients than their beef and pork counterparts, and they're lower in calories. And contrary to popular belief, these meatless patties are packed with protein and B-vitamins, not to mention good cholesterol. The fact that these patties are made from vegetables and beans that expand int he stomach mean that they are a lot easier to digest and a smaller amount of food can make a person feel just as full as almost twice the amount of beef.
So the next time you come a cross a meatless veggie burger, go and have a bite. You might just get addicted like us. ;) We make them sometimes, and I'd love to share the recipe with you soon.
