I love all varieties of vegetables, as well as Falafel, so I figured a veggie burger would make a great addition to my favorite vegetarian meals.

I purchased frozen veggie burgers made by Veggie Medley by Gardenburger, and really liked them, which prompted me to search for recipes online to customize one to satisfy my taste.

I enjoy preparing my own food at home and have control over the fat, salt and sugar contents in it.

This recipe is perfect for The Fat Smash Diet.

Notes

I like to eat these veggie burgers plain in Phase I and II, but in Phase III, there is a choice of whole wheat bread or whole wheat muffin to serve these on.  Veggie Burgers, just like brown rice, are now part of my new food list, which I learned to enjoy.

    I like that these have brown rice. I love the nuttiness they give a veggie burger. Usually though I like to use beans too or tofu. Something to give it an extra protein boost and make sure that you have a complete protein.

    Adding beans sounds great to me, but my husband does not like beans. Sometimes I do sneak some mushed up beans for additional nutrition and favor change.
