Easy Veggie Burger Recipe

 

It seems like summer time and burgers go hand in hand. In the past couple of weeks a few clients have asked me for a veggie burger recommendation that is Lora approved. Have you looked for a good veggie burger in the store? I have to say I am not that impressed. They either have gluten, hardly any protein for as many calories that are in it or have some other ingredient that you would rather not have, right?!

Well, look no further. This easy veggie burger recipe doesn’t take long to make, is vegan, gluten-free, low glycemic and tastes great!
