Ideas And Tips:

For the veggie burger, you can also use white beans, pinto beans or chickpeas. You can even substitute the buns with Portobello mushrooms.

If kale is not available or quite expensive in your area, you can use spinach, watercress, arugula, collard greens, mustard greens, Swiss chard or mixed salad greens.

Aside from walnuts, you can use pine nuts, almonds, cashew nuts, sunflower seeds or pecans.
