You can never have enough veggie burger recipes.  This is a good one for those of you who like a little heat.  The one pictured is topped with a raspberry chipotle sauce I picked up at New Seasons.  This burger is very low in fat, and packed with protein and fiber. Enjoy!

    I really enjoyed this recipe! My husband and I are new vegans! I was not sure how much my husband was going to like it? But he LOVED it!!! I did not use the jalapenos only because I have a wimpy stomach…. and it was still good! It was quick to put together too! Thank you for posting! 🙂
