Easy, delicious, Vegetarian, Vegan, and Plant-Based BurgerFit burger recipe to get you through the Lent season – and it’s so tasty, you may want to continue making it even when Lent is up! If you observe this springtime season of reflection, you’re likely giving up meat on Fridays and looking for vegetarian options instead. Look no further! BurgerFit makes it easy for you to observe Lent and eat delicious meals at home, while still getting the satisfaction of eating a burger.

Even though my BurgerFit recipes call for ground meat, you can easily swap it out for 2, 15 oz cans of cooked lentils. I was actually a vegetarian for many years and really enjoyed that lifestyle! I think both ways of eating are great and it really depends on what works for you. Variety is important to me, and sometimes it’s just nice to have a break from ground meat but still have a “burger” for my salads or my boy’s wraps.

I truly love vegetarian BurgerFit burgers just as much as the ground meat ones and because they’re made out of lentils, you’re still getting a good amount of protein! Even if you’re not vegetarian or vegan, give these Plant-Based BurgerFit burgers a try (especially if you’re giving up ground meat for Lent!). The seasonings and flavors from the vegetables make this a really flavorful meal that you may decide you need to make more often.

Even though I used the Koops’ Arizona Heat Mustard, you can experiment with any of the Koops’ Mustards! Some other ones that I think would be great in this recipe are:

Sometimes it’s nice to have a break from ground meet and try something different!

    Alane this is absolutely delicious! My husband was hesitant to eat it at first since there was no meat but he ended up finishing the entire plate and then asked when I will be making this again. The mustard also gave it so much flavor, I’m glad I did not skip adding that ingredient.
