This is more of a product review than a recipe (but I included the recipe too). Sometimes if I’m working a lot or feeling lazy, I want a 10-minute meal that is healthy and will fill me up. That’s where store-bought veggie burgers come into play. Sure it’s great to make your own patties but sometimes it’s just not possible.
I’m picky about my veggie burgers. I can’t really eat soy (intolerant from years of abusing it) and wheat (makes me really sleepy). I’m allergic to mushrooms (in case you’ve wondered why I never cook with them) and I don’t eat dairy. So that pretty much crosses out most of the veggie burgers on the market. Lucky for me- Sunshine burgers exist. Since I don’t usually eat burger buns made with wheat flour (I make exceptions from time to time) I make my veggie burgers into wrap sandwiches using a gluten-free tortilla. Rudi’s gluten-free is my favorite brand out there (they fold!!!)
I have no affiliation with either (or any) brands, just a fan of their products and sharing with like-minded people.
I love the Sunshine Burger Loco Chipotle. They are higher in calories than some other brands (300 per patty) but also a little larger so I put half in each wrap and it was perfect.
Rudis Gluten-Free Wraps: So good! These are the best gluten-free wraps I’ve had to date for a sandwich: they’re soft, they fold nicely and don’t fall apart. Heat them a little and they’re perfect.
Makes two servings (half a patty in each wrap). Here are the ingredients I used:
- One 1/4-pound Loco Chipotle Sunshine Burger (Quarter Pound Veggie Burger patty)
- 2 Rudis Gluten Free tortillas
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 heirloom tomato
- 1 cup Lettuce
- A few pickled jalapeño pepper slices
- Ketchup and mustard
I served mine with some roasted purple potatoes, BBQ sauce and salad.

For the salad: Rinse and chop your lettuce and put it in a bowl. Top each with 1/4 tomato slices, 1 tsp capers, a few dashes of dried dill spice and your favorite salad dressing (usually I make my own but I purchased an organic avocado vinaigrette from Whole Foods.)
