Recipe: Caprese Burger

We all know the Caprese Salad, a simple salad from Italy with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil. I decided to use this winning combination and build a veggie burger inspired by the salad. Instead of fresh basil I used pesto made from basil. I think pesto and mozzarella are such a brilliant combination! This vegetarian burger is super easy to make, so it’s great when you don’t feel like cooking.

Below is the recipe for 2 Caprese Burgers. They taste great with sweet potato fries!
