Expert Tips

Provolone is an aged cow’s milk cheese from southern Italy. Mild and smoky, provolone cheese is creamy-yellow in color. It’s a popular choice for Italian-style sandwiches.

Kidney, garbanzo or pinto beans can be use in place of the black beans in these veggie burgers. These lighter-colored beans, however, will not produce a dark-colored burger that mimics a hamburger.

To make vegetable burgers vegans will enjoy, omit the cheese or use soy-based, non-dairy cheese in place of the provolone cheese.
