How do you like your burger? Medium, well done, or plant-based? Over the years, veggie burgers have evolved far past the black bean patties of the past. The push for a healthier, more sustainable protein has brought a herd of new technologies to the vegan food industry. Now there are chicken filets, ground meatloaf, and even burgers that bleed. While some of these meat replacements claim to be able to convert even the savviest of carnivores, the true test is in the taste. If you are thinking of making the switch to a vegetarian diet, here are the best veggie burgers to buy now.
