The idea that vegetarians are out of luck at the backyard barbecue is a myth that has been wholly debunked. (Um, have you seen these grilled greens recipes?!) But let’s be honest: If you follow a vegetarian diet or are just trying to eat less meat, you’re already familiar with the tasteless hockey pucks—AKA veggie burgers—that are found in the frozen food aisle.

Yes, there are some good pre-made options out there, but homemade patties full of fresh ingredients almost always win out on the grill—both in terms of taste and nutritional value.

What makes veggie burgers such cookout champs? For one thing, they’re often packed with a plant-based protein like chickpeas or black beans, which means that you’re getting a serious macronutrient boost. They’ve also usually got a complex carbohydrate (that’s the good kind) in there, à la sweet potato or quinoa. Plus, the patties lend themselves to inventive flavor combinations that would make even the most diehard meat-eater grab a bun.

In other words, no matter the filler, veggie burgers are all killer. Especially these flavor-packed recipes that we’ve rounded up—each featuring a very different (but equally tasty) list of ingredients. The only problem? Good luck picking a favorite.

Keep reading for our five go-to veggie burger recipes.

If you want to make a meal of it, this broccoli slaw is the perfect side. And you’ll definitely want to cap off the meal with one of these insanely delicious vegan milkshakes.
