Meatless Monday: Veggie Burgers

A million times better than beef: Kelsey Nixon's Stuffed Cheesy Portobello Burger.

The truth is, this blogger goes meatless every day, not just Monday. I have nothing against meat, or meat-eaters, but what I do have a problem with is frozen veggie burgers. They are a sorry excuse for a burger and getting handed a gray, faux-meat patty is just about the worst thing that can happen to a vegetarian at a picnic. I’d much rather eat a plateful of picnic sides than a pretend burger. But burgers are the quintessential picnic food, and sometimes, when everyone’s piling the toppings onto their toasted bun, I want in too. Vegetable patties come in all forms — they can be elaborate and include different grains, spices, vegetables and beans packed into a burger shape, or be as simple as throwing a portobello mushroom cap on the grill.

So for Meatless Monday, Labor Day and neglected vegetarians everywhere, here’s a round-up of our best-ever meat-free burgers. Make one this weekend — you (and your guests) will be glad you skipped the frozen aisle.

    please, everyone who plans on cooking for a vegetarian needs to read this. veggie burgers from a box are not real food! just grill a mushroom, it takes 5 minutes and you don't even need a recipe!

    we are trying to do "meatless mondays" but it doesnt seem that the chew is meatless on mondays?? or do they just have one or two meatless dishes? i thought it was funny the day clinton placed a cupcake on michaels bald head but its getting kind of sickening to watch thhe chew crew rub assorted stuff into his scalp," yukkoh"
