Veggie burgers make for a quick and easy meat-free meal, but they can be a little underwhelming in the flavour department. To give them some extra oomph, consider parming it up. Photo by Dave.
This is just one of The Kitchn's great ideas on how to upgrade your plant-based patty, but it might be my favourite. Seriously, what isn't better when topped with sweet, bright pasta sauce and gooey, salty cheese? To give your veggie burger the parm treatment, simply top a cooked patty with your pasta sauce of choice (jarred is fast and fine), some shredded mozzarella and (of course) grated Parmesan. Pop it under the broiler until the cheese is melty and bubbly and serve as a sandwich or with a side of pasta. Top with fresh basil if you're fancy, which I suspect you are.
