Where to find them? I love love love my morning star black bean chipotle veggie burgers but they have 700 mg of sodium and that's just too much for me. I try oh so hard to keep sodium between 1500 and 2000.

Suggestions on where to buy pre-made veggie burgers or please post if you have a recipe I can try at home to make my own.

My local Wal-mart sells these Boca Original Vegan burgers. 70 calories per patty with 280mg of sodium. Have you tried those?

Not yet but I'll be buying them when I grocery shop there tomorrow, thank you! I honestly thought I may have to give up my veggie burgers with all that sodium but alas, perhaps not ;-)

Yeah, and I have to say for a guy who pretty much grew up on red meat I was actually surprised to find a VEGAN burger, of all things, would be delicious. Plus there's always that factor that, at only 70 calories a Patty, I can go back for seconds and not feel like I'm ruining my whole day.

I made these once (I just modified the recipe and made big patties instead of minis) and they were amazingggg. I love my morningstar black bean burgers too, but these were even better!

There's a recipe in the Moosewood cookbook for walnut lentil burgers. You can choose you sodium levels.

I just made a recipe on MFP using that recipe and it has: 164 calories, 31 carbs, 1 fat, 7 protien, 7 fiber and 366 sodium.

Not too bad. I'm going to make them tomorrow night to see how they are but I'm still buying the vegan ones at WalMart tomorrow lol!

BTW, I didn't use olive oil in my recipe at all. I use an olive oil cooking spray that has no fat, cals, sodium or anything else. All ZEREOS in the nutrition table.

Ah, allergic to walnuts so that won't work for me. I did check out walmart today and they were out of the vegan burgers. Figures, lol!
