If you’re familiar with Food Network host and restaurant owner Guy Fieri, you know how passionate he is about a premium cut of meat. Even though he grew up vegetarian and had health-conscious parents, Fieri’s love for carnivorous meals started as a child and continued to grow as he started to cook for himself and his family.
Guy recently (temporarily) returned to his vegetarian roots by creating a veggie burger that is full of nutrients and packed with flavor. The burger promises to be a savory treat for vegetarians, but meat-eaters can enjoy the heartiness of the “burger” as well. Fieri crafted this delicious entree in honor of his late sister Morgan.
A combination of white, garbanzo and black beans are the protein for the burger, which also contains jalapeno peppers, onion, black olives, and a host of spices and seasonings. Bread crumbs, rolled oats and an egg help to bring the burger together so that it’s ready to be sauteed.
Guy Fieri is the host of Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and has tasted a meat-free entree or two on the show. He’s also hosted a special featuring his son Hunter, who has dreams of going to culinary school. So, fans shouldn’t expect Fieri to give up the meat any time soon, since he still wants to provide his take on all the delectable meat dishes offered all over the U.S.
