Happy Monday, Loves!

The recent NYTimes article has inspired me to try a new veggie burger recipe.  I love the chickpea version from 101 Cookbooks — the microgreens are the key ingredient– but I want less of a Middle Eastern flavor and more of the great burgery patties we get at Umami Burger and Houstons.  I’ll let you know how the jalapeno version, below, works out!

Do you make veggie burgers?  Do you like a specific bean base (black beans, chickpeas, etc.)? Or do you go more for mushrooms?  We’d love to know.
