Picnic Burgers

Cook these vegan burgers in the oven, wrap them up, and take them on a hike or picnic. They are good whether hot or cold. Serve them with a salad or on buns with all the trimmings. They hold together beautifully!

  • 3/4 c boiling water
  • 1/4 c ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp sweet pickle relish
