Vegan Sunburgers for your Meatless Monday.

While the “Meatless Monday”  concept has been around since World War I, the contemporary initiative began in 2003, creating a global outlet to share information relating to the health and environmental benefits of reduced meat consumption. The evidence that a more plant based diet promotes health is getting stronger. That information, coupled with growing concerns over the greenhouse gases produced in raising cattle, have resulted in Americans markedly cutting their beef consumption in the last decade.

If you decide to go meatless 52 days a year, for whatever reason resonates for you, here’s one of my favorite plant based recipes that is delicious, filling and will be that “gotta try” alternative for BBQ’s, cook-outs and “burger nights”, all year long. Enjoy!
