I mean sometimes, you just want to put something "meaty" into your mouth. Who doens't like to make a "burger" type dish with all the fixings? This is a wonderful vegan / vegetarian burger you can eat as a great burger or even alone with you favorite creamy sauce and a side salad. I drizzled on my favorite chipotle sauce and it was so good!

You can find my vegan chipotle ranch sauce HERE.
*Optional: for a lower fat version, skip the pan sear and put the patties straight into the oven onto a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake for an additional 10 minutes until cooked through.
I love this recipe because you can definitely change up the ingredients and make different versions. This has defnitely become one of my family's go to recipes.
