From Hearty Beefless Sliders to Vegan Berry Burgers

For vegetarians and vegans alike, it can be difficult to find meat-free burgers that are both healthy and tasty. These hearty dishes demonstrate that there are indeed a number of DIY and pre-made meatless burger options out there.

For quite some time, many commercial veggie patties were processed, dehydrated and bland. However, recently companies have begun putting more focus on creating better tasting vegetarian and vegan options. For example, consumers can now purchase store-bought patties that are packed with nutritious superfoods and free from artificial filters. There are also bite-sized veggie burger options that provide a perfect meat-free appetizer for any party.

For those who are more ambitious, there is also the option of making your own meat-free patty. Some DIY burger recipes include patties made from healthy ingredients such as chickpeas, quinoa and sweet potatoes. Other recipes ditch the idea of a patty altogether and instead opt for a filling made from vegetables or even juice pulp.

While meat-free burgers may not be everyone's cup of tea, a growing number of health-consious consumers are interested in purchasing and consuming meatless burger alternatives.
