I love a good burger.

Load it up with fresh greens, cheese and tomatoes on a bakery style bun, and I’m in burger heaven.

Gourmet style burgers are my favorite.  With the MorningStar Farms variety of burgers like Spicy Black Bean Burgers, Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burgers and Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers, I can create a gourmet style veggie burger that is a good source protein right in my own kitchen.  They are quick, easy and so tasty!  I love to pop these burgers on my panini, to create a delicious and healthy meal for my family.  They can even be prepared right on the grill!

MorningStar Farms has over 30+ products including Buffalo Chick Patties and even a Baja Black Bean Pizza.  With over 600+ recipes on their website, they offer more ways to eat smart.

MorningStar Farms Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers are absolutely delicious!  They are bursting with flavor that taste like they just came from a gourmet deli.  They are perfect for a summer picnic outdoors along with fresh fruit and a big leafy salad tossed simply with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a healthy meal.

My favorite way to serve these burgers is on a ciabatta roll topped with a variety of greens like a spring mix, sun dried tomatoes, feta cheese and a simple garlic and dill aioli.  Don’t want the roll?  Try this in a salad.  Simply slice a cooked burgers and toss it with the spring mix, tomatoes, feta and aioli for a tasty meal.  MorningStar Farms makes it easy to eat smart, whether you go meatless every day, or every now and then.

The MorningStar Farms Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burgers and Spicy Black Bean Burgers are new favorites of mine too.  I made these with the same toppings, as the Mediterranean Chickpea Burgers and they are so good! I made both of these for my mom and I for lunch recently, and she couldn’t stop raving about them.  She is always looking for new ways to eat smart, and she can’t wait to make these again at home.
