Veggie Mini Burger Pita — Meatless Monday

Veggie Mini Yogurt PitaFor a bite-size treat that’s perfect for a lazy summer barbecue, try your hand at these meatless mini burgers by Jeff Mauro. Ready-made veggie burger patties tend to be unhealthy due to their use of mock meats, and are full of sodium, which often leads to people skipping them altogether. With a few inventive ideas and a food processor, however, you can create a meatless alternative that is as flavorful as it is healthy.

In this Veggie Mini Burger Pita with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce recipe, the patties are made with a mix of quinoa and cannellini beans to kick up their protein content and are seasoned with breadcrumbs, spices, cilantro and garlic. They are then stuffed into soft pita bread and topped with a creamy, tangy yogurt-based dressing for an added pop of flavor. Try these at your next barbecue for a healthy dish all party guests will enjoy.

    Seriously? "Ready-made veggie burger patties tend to be unhealthy due to their use of mock meats…"? I completely disagree and take offense at your mis-leading statement. Yes, they do have sodium. But they have plenty of other healthy products (soy, grains, veggies, etc.) Mock meats are MUCH more healthy than real meat so please get your facts straight. And I would never say that their ingredients "lead to people skipping them altogether". That seems totally made up. Honestly it's their ingredients why people choose them over traditional meat. Yes, home-made veggie patties are sometimes more healthy than store-bought but they're also way more healthy than a regular burger (beef, chicken, or otherwise). I think you really should revise the article.
