Summer's Here: Great Vegetarian Burger for Outdoor Grilling!

One of my absolute FAVORITE things about summer is eating outside. There's something about eating good food, hanging out with friends and family, and being outside in the sun that makes for a perfect combo. Summer picnics were a beloved family activity during my childhood, and they are no less fun today. Everything tastes better when you are outside. For vegetarians, heading to a summer BBQ party is not too exciting when there are only meat options. This is a great vegetarian burger recipe that can be made on the grill or on the stove. These protein-packed burgers are quick to throw together and very tasty. You can also make them a day in advance and refrigerate before you take to a summer BBQ to throw on the grill! I also served these on top of a fresh ripe and firm tomato from our garden, using it in place of the bun. A great gluten-free option! Read More
