No beef in this hamburger.
As Clean Plate Charlie pointed out earlier this week, May is National Hamburger Month. You can read our list of ways to celebrate the occasion here. But if you're not a meat eater, there's no reason to be left completely out of the fun. After the jump, we've got a list of eleven places to get a veggie burger in South Florida. I realize these choices are not hamburgers, but remember: vegetarians love food too! As a bonus, most (not all) of these places have actual hamburgers too, so everyone can walk away happy.

Charm City Burgers -- There's no frozen, store-bought hockey puck patty here; the hippie ($6) is house-made with a blend of mushrooms, black beans, and herbs.

Tap 42 -- The veggie burger ($12.50) is a blend of black beans, beets, onion, carrots, jalapeno, and a soy glaze topped with provolone cheese and beet mayo.

Sublime -- This vegetarian restaurant's veggie burger ($16) is made with black japonica rice, red mahogany rice, and black beans and is topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and jalapeno mayo. Served with sweet potato fries. 

Green Wave Cafe -- Order the "cheese" burger from this raw, organic vegan cafe and prepare to be surprised at how such a thing can exist, devoid of any animal products.

The Yard House -- Order any version of the restaurant's burger with a Gardein patty instead of beef. 

Elevation Burger -- Not one, but two types of veggie burgers on the menu (plus a half-veggie/half-meat version). Veggie burger option one has a "fire roasted" taste, while veggie burger option two is vegan.

CG Burgers -- The vegetarian burger ($6.50) is made with a Dr. Praeger's patty. 

BurgerFi -- One of the few local choices made with quinoa (a complete protein and powerhouse in the vegan/vegetarian diet) and topped with white cheddar cheese.

YOLO Restaurant and O Lounge -- Their flavor-packed ultimate veggie burger ($10.50) is made with bulgur wheat, crimini mushrooms, cashews, and topped with melted jack cheese. 

Grease Burger Bar -- The veggie burger ($10.95) is topped with cucumbers and hummus.

Eten Food Co. -- The recipe changes daily depending on what vegetables are in season. It's so tasty it's served without a bun and it's one of the most popular items on the menu.

This may sound weird, but Grand Lux Cafes has an excellent home-made vegieburgers for cheap.  Having said that, I prefer to "shop local".
