What if store-bought Veggie Patties aren’t for you??

If you are after some vegetarian or vegan-friendly burger patties that are LowER/ Low carb, I found a few great recipes online. These do require some work, so if you are time-poor, it might be a good idea to plan some time and make a whole batch of these so they are ready to go for you next time!

Firstly mushrooms are sooo good for you! Portobello mushrooms are fat, juicy, and flavoursome which makes them perfect for a burger patty. This recipe stuffs them with yummy flavours so they are even tastier! (Don’t forget to hit the ‘jump to recipe’ button 😉 )
