This was originally the Whitewater Veggie Burger and salsa from the same cookbook. This burger was amazing! So hearty and delicious. This recipe freezes well, which was good because it makes a lot many burgers.

    Yum! Are the buns from scratch? If so, would you mind sharing the recipe? They look amazing as well!

  4. Annie says:

    I wish they were made from scratch. I started this forgetting about buns and my dh had to run out to the store last minute! I’ll post a recipe the next time I do make them since I’m naking at the moment!

    I made the veggie burgers and salsa last night and my husband (who used to expect meat everyday just a few years ago) said that they were better than most of the beef burgers we’ve had at home. I think it’s a compliment. The salsa was amazing. Next time I will double the recipe to have left overs for the next day.
