This is one of my favorite recipes, full of flavor with wonderful ingredients and packed with nutrients. This veggie patty is an excellent choice for vegans and also recommended to those who care about their health without giving up tasty food. It’s rich in fiber, low in fat and calories without any preservatives.  If you are trying to lose some weight but you don’t want to drastically change your diet, this is a perfect option. It fills you up without overwhelming you and leaving you satisfied. Most importantly it is delicious! Veggie burgers not only satisfy your hunger and help maintain a healthy weight, but can also help prevent diseases like colon cancer because of the high amount of fiber. Fiber is beneficial for the colon and heart.  This is also a great source of protein and iron. Give it a try! bulgur wheat veggie patties - world gluttony
