Introduction

Get ready to celebrate National Veggie Burger Day on June 5th! This day was created to honor the deliciousness of veggie burgers and their impact on meat-free diets. The history of veggie burgers dates back to 1982 when an American scientist, Dr. Stephen Wynn, developed a recipe for a vegetable patty that resembled beef in both taste and texture. Since then, these tasty treats have become increasingly popular with vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike!
