"veggie burgers"

As a vegetarian myself, I'm somewhat perturbed by the term "veggie burger" ... it's beefburger, turkeyburger, so what is a "veggie burger" made from? Vegetarians? The last time I frequented a fast food place on a regular basis, they sold "spicy bean burgers" - a far less alarming name. According to the OED, whilst 'burger' is a meat products (hamburger), adding anything to the beginning makes it a bread product with something in.
