For years I tried and tried to come up with an easy way to make a great-tasting burger substitute. When paired with a crusty bun, this burger has a hearty texture and robust taste that stands in magnificently for the meat-based version. Bonus: This burger freezes beautifully for up to one month, so to save time—make a double batch!
