Adding the vegetable juice was great!  There was so much more flavor than I’ve ever had in a burger.  This is a recipe I’ll bookmark for sure.   As I’m making them, my smart alleck 12 year old said, “What’s cooking? Yamburgers?”  LOL.. poor kids gets a lot of experiments around here.

So, now with 1 1/2 quarts of juice left, we’ve got to get creative.  Here are 9 other things you can do with vegetable juice that we thought of:

  1. Freeze the juice in an ice cube tray to be used next time we make vegetable soups.
  2. Freeze the juice in baggies to be used in a fruit/ vegetable smoothie.
  3. Add it to spaghetti sauce or chili to stretch your sauce a little further.
  4. Combine with oil and vinegar for a flavored salad dressing.
  5. Add it to BBQ sauce for marinating meat
  6. Use to flavor the water when cooking rice or Quinoa.
  7. Gazpacho.  Have you tried it? I haven’t, but this recipe looks  from All You Magazine delish.
  8. Replace some of the broth in this multi bean soup with vegetable juice.
  9. And of course, if you could be so lucky to enjoy it, DRINK IT!

So don’t let vegetable juice scare you!  If anything, those burgers are amazing!

I’m glad you are excited about the juice! Do you mean you love the idea of the burgers? Because they were so tasty!!

I am a huge fan of veggie juice (especially freshly made ones), but always been less than satisfied with bottled versions because of the high sodium. how is the sodium in this one? Noticeable?

The number one benefit of drinking vegetable juice for me has got to be the improved immunity against infections and disease. The immune boosting effect has meant that vegetable juices have become part of most nutritional therapies in the battle against many serious illnesses.
