Celebrating National Veggie Burger Day

Dan Fruits & Vegetables, This Land of Ours


Veggie Burger

Cathy Isom continues with delicious foods by celebrating a protein-packed sandwich that combines flavor and plant plower. That’s coming up on this Land of Ours.

Tuesday June 5th is National Veggie Burger Day. A veggie burger is a patty resembling  a hamburger but is made with vegetable protein, soybeans, or anything else that does not contain meat. Ingredients include tofu, nuts, grain, seeds, and vegetables such as mushroom or fungi. They’re a quick and convenient way to enjoy a meatless meal and typically run from 70 to 130 calories per patty.

You can grill them, fry them or bake them. You can also layer all your favorite toppings like onion, tomato, lettuce, cheese, ketchup and mustard between crusty roll or bun, just as you would as a regular hamburger.

Should you find yourself enjoying one of these delicious creations, use the hashtag #VeggieBurgerDay to share on social media.
