I’m from Seattle but now I live in France. Finding a veggie burger here is nearly impossible. I only know of 1 restaurant in all of Paris that serves veggie burgers and they’re not in the grocery stores either. I’ve been craving a veggie burger for over a year, so like mexican food (same problem), I took it upon myself to make a homemade solution. I combed through all the veggie burger recipes I could find on the internet. I was impressed by the Chow Veggie Burger article and also the more simple Mushroom Veggie Burger recipe but finding vegetable protein in Paris is just impossible; so I combined the 2 recipes. My dinner guests, all meat-lovers, arrived for the evening skeptical but they all gave me a big thumbs up! My first-time-ever-eating-veggie-burgers-wife (french) asked me to make them again the next day! Ok problem solved, and they’re easy to make.
