The Hubster seems to go back and forth with these burgers. Sometimes, they are in his good graces. And sometimes, they are not.

Which is okay, I suppose. The man knows what he likes (lentil burgers), and will be faithful to them until the day he dies.

I like these burgers because they help me eat more greens like spinach without really trying.

The Hubster doesn’t care, since he eats greens with breakfast every morning.

I like these burgers because they are different than our standard lentil burgers and black bean burgers.

The Hubster doesn’t care, and in fact prefers those two.

I like these burgers, because…I do.

Good thing I’m the cook.

  1. Those look good. I have to try one of these out, they all look so delicious, I am trying to get myself moving on a more healthy lifestyle and want to push for meatless Monday. I am not ready to strike red meat off yet. I have to try the lentil burgers first I think. Thanks I always enjoy your posts.
