This Plant-Based Burger Recipe Will Satisfy All Your Summer BBQ Cravings

On a sweltering summer day, the last thing you want to do is hole yourself up in your kitchen cooking another roasted [insert whatever you have in your fridge here] special.

Here's a better idea: Give your oven a break and bring on the pool-side vibes by firing up the grill (or whipping out your grill pan) for an at-home cookout—burger and all. Even better? Make it plant-based.

To put a simple wellness twist on your not-your-average BBQ, swap your beef patty for a Lightlife Plant-Based Burger, found in the refrigerated meat section of your grocery store. Harnessing beet powder, pea protein, garlic, coconut oil, oregano, and sage, it has all the nostalgia-fueled taste you love—so you can close your eyes and not even know you're chowing down on plant-based meat. Plus, there's no GMOs, soy, or gluten, just 20 glorious grams of plant-based protein from peas.

Harnessing beet powder, pea protein, garlic, coconut oil, oregano, and sage, they have all the nostalgia-fueled taste you love.

Take your plant-based burger recipe a step further with a tangy avocado slaw, which basically makes taking a bite of your burger like taking a vacation. So scratch the boring meal-prep plans—and enter vacay mode.
