6 Veggie Burger Recipes That Won't Let You Down

No meat? No worries.

Veggie burgers are a staple meal in many vego and vegan households. And there's no reason why omnivores can't get on board, too -- properly made veggie burgers are full of flavour, meat-like texture (hint: not soggy) and completely versatile to suit your taste.

Not to mention the fact that veggie burgers are the perfect way to make burger time a truly nutritious experience.

And, along with pickles, tomato sauce and guac, you can even serve these burgers with dairy free cheese.

Here are six delicious, satisfying veggie burgers that won't let you down.

1. Black bean and quinoa burgers with strawberry barbecue sauce

If you want an easy-to-make burger with a meat-like texture, this is the one. These filling burger patties are vegan and gluten free, and are made with black beans, quinoa and sautéed veggies. Pop the patties in a bun with salad and roasted strawberry barbecue sauce, and you're set.

2. Cauliflower falafel veggie burgers

Falafel fans, try this delicious burger creation. Using a chickpea, cauliflower, quinoa, herb and spice base, these Middle Eastern inspired burgers are pan fried until golden and stacked in a soft bun.
