Vegetarian Burgers For Those Don’t Want Meat

Vegetarian burgers are the perfect solution for those who want a burger that looks and tastes like a meat burger, but in fact is meat-free. Are you a committed vegan or vegetarian? We congratulate on taking this step towards good health. Many of our patients are vegetarian, but many are meat eaters as well. We are not prejudiced towards one or the other, but do believe in the importance of eating a balanced and healthy diet.Be sure to get you vitamin B12 and iron levels checked periodically if you are vegan and have psoriasis, because these two essential nutrients are important in the skin’s healing process.

This recipe is sure to please those who are interested in eating meat-free. This recipe is enough to serve 3 to 4 people.

This Recipe Contains Tomato Paste

Note that it contains tomato paste, and that I mention on this website that you will need to be careful with tomato when it comes to psoriasis? Well, not everybody with psoriasis will have adverse reactions by consuming the solancea family of vegetables (tomato, potato, eggplant, chili) but some will. So, you will need to be careful and trial an elimination of this family of vegetables, for at least 3 – 4 weeks, before you decide they are OK or not OK to consume.
