Hi Dudes,

I have to confess that I really like meat – especially in form of hamburgers.
Nevertheless, I am aware that meat has quite a large ecologic footprint and it maybe a good idea to think about reducing my meat consumption a little bit. So my questions is simple:
Is it possible to make a tasty burger without meat? Yesterday I started to built my own burger.
It is based on pumpkin and zucchini and I was really surprised how well it tasted! You don’t believe me? Try it out and send me feedback!
