7 Places to Get an Amazing Plant-Based Burger in South Florida
Veggie burgers aren’t what they used to be, and culinarians everywhere are discovering that plant-based patties have loads of advantages over their beefier counterparts. With vegan burgers, no cows have to be killed, no arteries have to be clogged, and no rainforest has to be razed. They’re a win win win.
Here in South Florida, we have some amazing plant-based burger options, from black bean to lentil patties to grain meats and beyond.
