Gluten-Free Veggie Burgers You’ll Want To Make Every Meatless Monday

You have to try these protein patties!

Black bean Veggie Burgers, Helga's Gluten-Free Gourmet Rolls

Since we read about the benefits of following a plant-based diet, we’ve been trying to cut the cow, so to speak. And while, we’ve certainly reduced our intake, we haven’t gone cold turkey. (Why would you think meat is on our minds?).

Nevertheless, we have been sticking to Meatless Monday and really enjoying it. Not only do we set the week with an intention, it’s been a great excuse to experiment in the kitchen. We’ve tried a flavoursome kale and chickpea scramble from Lola Berry, next-level stuffed capsciums from Taline Gabrielian and several moreish pastas. So today, we’re having burgers.

Thanks to the chefs at Bar Luca and Chur Burger, we have a delicious veggie burger to try. It’s packed full of black beans and quinoa for protein and sprinkled with spice for flavour. Plus, for all the coeliacs who thought they’d be left out, it comes on a GF bun and has no flour in the patty. Bon appetite!
