Lentil and Zucchini Burgers

Lentils are an underutilized but versatile ingredient. They are inexpensive and easy to make, and are full of folate, copper, phosphorus, manganese, iron, protein, and fiber. These burgers use both lentils and chickpeas, and are topped with a dollop of creamy, cool yogurt-cucumber raita.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burger

Wild Rice, Mushroom, and Navy Bean Burgers

The wild rice and mushrooms add texture and fiber to this veggie burger, and the denseness of the patty will definitely satisfy even the hungriest eaters. Try draping a slice of cheese over patties during the last few minutes of baking for some extra gooeyness.
