The Best Vegetarian Burger Ever!

I'm not much of a cook- I find it very tedious! But I don't mind spending the effort on these burgers.

They do take some time to prepare but the have to be the tastiest vegetarian burgers I've ever had. Even my non vegetarian friends like them and they're great for BBQ's.
