With football season well underway, we know that many are spending their weekends at tailgates or gathered with friends watching the game at home. With that typically comes grilling burgers or hotdogs, which are not the best for our health. Luckily, Mama Gaia serves up two varieties of delicious, organic veggie burgers that are crazy good. Let’s get acquainted with this duo!
For those who love a burger without all the fluff, we’ve got our classic veggie burger for you. This satisfying housemade vegan patty sits atop a vegan wheat bun with red onion, baby mixed greens, ketchup and Dijonnaise, a creamy dijon mustard.
Feeling a little more adventurous when it comes to burgers? Try our smokehouse veggie burger. This option’s depth of flavor is something to phone home about. It’s decked out with roasted garlic aioli, smoked onion and a four-cheese blend. If you like spice, we highly recommend applying some of our organic sriracha, too! Pair these tasty burgers with a side of our roasted red pepper hummus for a meal that is good AND good for you!
So, why skip the beef burgers and opt for one of our vegan patty options? Eating more vegetables results in a higher consumption of fiber, folic acid, vitamins, magnesium and unsaturated fat—all the good stuff we need to help our bodies get through each and every day! This often leads to lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure. Your risk for cardiovascular disease is also reduced when you cut out meat. How so? Well, the foods that vegetarians enjoy are typically high in antioxidants, which help reduce your risk of fat buildup in your artery walls.
Stop by Mama Gaia today to try one of these organic burgers out for yourself - full-size or slider options are available! We’re located in the Ballet Memphis building off Overton Square at 2144 Madison Avenue.
