Vegan Burger





Vegan diet doesn’t mean boring diet. Vegetarian recipes can be fun and tasty. I know vegan burgers are not all alike. Sometimes they don’t have the desired texture. But this time everything is perfect! Brown rice and lentils go so well together. Try it with vegan mayonnaise it is fantastic. I hope you’ll enjoy this vegetarian burger as much as I do.
