If NBA superstar JJ Redick can substitute a beef patty for this all-natural veggie patty, we think you can too. With all the classic flavors of a traditional burger coming from the toppings you put in-between the buns, you won’t even be able to tell the difference.

From JJ Redick, guard for the Philadelphia 76ers.
