Buffalo Cauliflower Burgers, Zucchini Corn Relish

We took, “Don’t forget the veggies!” to the next level this month with our made-from-scratch veggie burgers. If you thought Falafel Burgers were a hit, wait until you try Buffalo Cauliflower Burgers. Our vegan patties keep it lean with cauliflower and get a boost of protein and fiber from garbanzo beans and quinoa. Filled with hot sauce and scallions, topped with a fresh veggie relish, we promise no one at your table will be missing the meat!

We’re deep into burger season, so if you haven’t had your fill yet, try Thai Tuna Burger, Papaya SalsaArctic Char Burger, Mango Avocado Relish, or Salmon Burger, Wasabi Mayo

2 cups cooked garbanzo beans
1/4 cup Frank's Red Hot buffalo sauce

  1. First prepare the relish. In a bowl, combine corn, zucchini, and tomatoes. Set aside.
