There was a time when we ate veggie burgers all the time at our house but over the past few years we have been diversifying our meals more so now when we do have burgers we like to go all out. It also happens that summer time is our favorite time to indulge in veggie burgers because it’s grilling season and there is also a summer bbq party to host or attend.
While the standard burger toppings (lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard and onion) are fine a burger is always better if there is upgrade to toppings. Some of my favorite combinations include bbq sauce, sauteed mushrooms, crispy onion rings and vegan cheese slices. I also love a good “cheese” burger with lots of banana peppers and pickles and of course your standard toppings. When I’m feeling a little crazy going a more Tex-Mex route is always fun with toppings such guacamole, salsa and refried beans. However, while all of those are great combinations my current favorite is what I like to call the California Burger.
- Tomato, sliced
- Red Onion, super thinly sliced
- Micro Greens or Sprouts
- Avocado, sliced
- Vegan Cheddar
- Whole Wheat Bun
- Garden Herb Sunshine Burger – cook based on instructions on the box
- Herbed Vegan Mayo (1 tablespoon each freshly chopped basil, chives, parsley and lemon juice with 1/3 cup vegan mayo)
Simple and easy to put together! I like to slather a healthy serving of mayo on each side of my bun and then I place the micro greens on one side and the tomato, onion and avocado on the other. I make sure to melt the “cheese” onto the burger and then that goes in the middle. Then it all gets smooshed together and I gobble it up. P.S. this is messy so get the napkins ready or just lick your fingers like I do.
Now I have been a Sunshine Burger fan for years now so I was thrilled to work with them. My favorite way to eat them (besides the recipe above) is either on top of a salad or in a wrap. They are seriously delicious and they are free of gluten, wheat, soy, corn, oats, dairy, eggs, tree nuts and peanuts AND Non-GMO project verified. <—All the more reason I love these burgers. My favorite flavors are the Garden Herb and the Hemp & Sage Breakfast but now that I see there is a Loco Chipotle one I am going to have to try that one out because I love chipotle flavored foods.
