Fiesta Veggie Burgers & A Nature's Path Giveaway


Nature's Path (one of my fave food companies) is celebrating a special anniversary - they have been family-owned and proudly Canadian for 30 years! In 1967, with just $7 in their pockets and a $1,500 loan, the Nature’s Path co-founders opened the country's first vegetarian restaurant. They started Nature’s Path out of the back of that restaurant in 1985.

I often use Nature's Path cereals in my recipes - just last night I made breaded tofu using the first product the company ever produced - Fruit Juice Sweetened Corn Flakes. In the spirit of spring/summer, I'm sharing one of Nature's Path's delicious recipes - Fiesta Veggie Burgers. Made with black beans, veggies and Nature’s Path Flax Plus Flakes, these little yummy patties are sure to be a hit at any family dinner, barbecue or potluck. (And read on for a Nature's Path giveaway!)
