Think that a lean, green, plant-based diet means you can’t enjoy a juicy burger? Think again! The Travel Channel recently helped prove there are some truly AMAZING veggie burgers out there.

On their series, Hamburger Paradise, the cable network gave serious love to The Spot — the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Los Angeles and a “landmark in the city of Hermosa Beach.”

Owner of The Spot Tonya Beaudet has been making homemade veggie burgers for years and has developed somewhat of a cult following.

According to the Travel Channel site, “Vegetarians and vegans love their burgers just as much as meat-eaters.  Packed with fresh vegetable, bean, rice and soy ingredients, each veggie patty is jam-packed with flavor. Established in 1977, The Spot has been a fixture in the Hermosa Beach community ever since. Who are the biggest customers? According to owner Tonya Beaudet, carnivores come in flocks to sample the veggie burger’s unique flavor.”

Let’s also not forget how much water, energy and resources one saves when deciding to skip the beef and go for the vegetarian alternative. Mother Earth says thank you!

Check out the video below and see how The Spot makes their hearty burger, but be weary: the opening credits are way, super gross! BLAH!
