Notes










Tips

Expert Tips

Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray sheet of heavy-duty foil. Place patties on foil. Place on grill over medium-high heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until brown and crisp.

We think these veggie burgers are so good, they don't need a bun. Try them stacked with fresh veggies and a drizzle of your favorite burger sauce. Or, top with a fresh veggie salsa. To make fresh veggie salsa, in a medium bowl, mix 1 cup coarsely chopped red or yellow bell pepper, 1/2 cup thinly sliced cucumber, 1/4 cup slivered white onion and 1/4 cup cilantro leaves. Stir in 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. About 2 cups salsa.
