The impressive Veggie Burger formulation (page a hundred thirty five) is just like the smoothie formula—it offers the skeleton of the recipe and all you’ve obtained to do is decide on the constituents you’re within the temper for or have to be had. As for the bun, it’s not obligatory. those burgers paintings all alone, crowned with lettuce, salsa, or no matter what you're keen on. so that you can have a bun, decide upon a whole-grain one, or higher but, one made of sprouted grains. And don’t overlook different ideas: whole-grain or sprouted-grain pitas are nice for Indian or Greek variety burgers, or even a wide, rolled collard or lettuce leaf can act as a fit solution to carry your burger. five.
