05 Jan Hemp and Mushroom Patties
If you’re one to try and make your own vegetarian patties, it’s likely you’ve encountered a number of recipe disappointments. More time than not, the patties are bland or the lack the right consistency and crumble apart. This veggie patty, made with hemp seeds and mushrooms, will leave you and your taste buds happy. You can serve them over a bed of lettuce, stick them in between a bun or eat them alone.
The patties contain both hemp seeds and hemp protein powder, which means that not only will your meal taste great, but also it’ll offer a number of nutritional benefits.
