Fill Up on Veggies
Burgers are the perfect choice for backyard barbecues and summer weeknight dinners alike. And, while you might think that meat is required for a hearty bite, we’re here to tell you that there are some really satisfying vegetarian options. In fact, veggie burgers are a breeze to make when you need a quick, healthy meal — and they’re just as good when prepped ahead of time and stored in the freezer. Looking for a few reliable recipes that back a punch of flavor in every bite? You’re in the right place. Start with these veggie patties that combine tender lentils and rich sweet potatoes. Your multicooker will make the process easy and efficient (it's our go-to appliance for lots of vegetarian recipes), although you can just as easily cook the lentils on the stovetop if you prefer. Topped with crunchy coleslaw for an extra-refreshing bite, these burgers make a wholesome meal that everyone will want to eat again and again.
