Why we love it? Typically when you go to nosh on a veggie burger, the outcome is varied. This burger is different than most in that it’s completely home made. It isn’t dry or lacking in flavor; in fact, it’s got a big, spicy kick to it. The burger itself is moist and stuffed with veggies, beans and other tasty spices and herbs. It’s drizzled with a spicy balsamic aioli that adds even more punch to the savory burger.
