Now that's what I call a burger...

I love vegan burgers, they are so satisfying and you can make them in a variety of ways. Burgers are probably one of my favourite foods to make and develop recipes for, especially in the summer. This burger is protein packed and flavourful! Perfect for the summertime with its maple and garlic sauce. Serve it in a bun, a lettuce wrap, or over a bed of greens!
