While beef is delicious, there are some instances when a regular ole burger isn't going to hit the spot. Say, for someone who doesn't think that beef is delicious, or isn't in the mood for beef. More and more places are getting creative with veggie burger preparation, making the patties in house with ingredients like beets, beans, mushrooms, oats, and even prunes. Several of the below have popped up on other burger lists, which makes sense. If a restaurant makes a beef burger with care and pride, then it stands to reason that attention will be equally bestowed on the less carnivorous version.
