Seed and Bean Burger (and Crumbles)

I truly enjoy making veggie/bean burgers. It is a lot of fun to experiment with different flavours and ingredients. You can really customize them to whatever you are doing for dinner that night. Doing Mexican? Make a taco inspired bean burger! Italian? Pasta inspired! So many options, so many ways! You can do this with meat burgers, but they can also get overcooked or fall apart a lot more easily than bean burgers will. Another great thing about making bean burgers is versatility! Go from burger on a bun to crumbles in a taco within a matter of seconds using the exact same recipe. Two in one meals that are healthy and yummy and friendly to your wallet.
