Vegan Mushroom Risotto Burgers

These vegan mushroom risotto burgers are hearty, comforting, and bound to please vegans and non-vegans alike. A savory Dr. Praeger's Mushroom Risotto Veggie Burger is slathered with gooey vegan cashew mozzarella cheese and topped with caramelized onions. The finishing touch? A petite handful of peppery baby arugula that adds a pop of freshness to complement the heartiness of these epic vegan burgers.
