Easy Healthy Vegan Bean & Butternut Burgers – perfect to make for an easy plant-based dinner.
These plant-based vegan burgers pack a lot of goodness and veggies. Honestly, the beef burger can never compare to these bad boys.
Yes, obviously the texture isn’t meaty, but one benefit of eating these is that they won’t clog your arteries and give you a heart attack, in fact, they do the opposite.
These butternut burgers have so much plant-based protein in them. If you load the burgers with two parties as I did, you will get just as much protein if you had a beef patty.
Now, these patties are on the soft side, but that doesn’t mean that they are not tasty. There is loads going on, and if you pair them with a nice toasted bun and some toppings, you will get the perfect vegan burger.
Making these butternut squash patties isn’t difficult at all. The food processor pretty much does all the work for you. Then all you need to do, is shape your patties and bake ’em. Easy.
