As long as I can remember I have liked things that my family has rolled their eyes at or laughed when I asked them to try it. (Tofu sausage egg scramble is probably the most normal experiment I have put them thru).
Some of my tamer likes are turkey sandwiches for breakfast, one pot veggie messes, miso soup at any time of the day and sunny side eggs on my salads....
However as I get older and travel more I realize that my pallete is not unique and there are PLENTY of people out there who love the same quirky food favorites that I eat regularly. The recipe below is one of my weird craving moments that resulted in a delicious veggie burger that I may or may not have been eating with every meal since (honestly, who has a veggie burger on an onion roll w/ garlic tzatziki for breakfast? THIS GIRL!)
I have been experimenting with various types of veggie burgers the past few months. One because they are so expensive at the store and two because to me, the frozen store bought versions actually taste like cardboard to me and not veggies.
So, with an intense craving and fridge full of CSA veggies I got to making a burger! I had an idea in my head of the recipe from when I made black bean burgers a while back.
I scoured the fridge/pantry and pulled out the following items:
Trader Joe's Spiced Soybeans
Trader Joe's ready to eat steamed lentils
2 med size zucchinis grated
1 large carrot grated
aprox 1 cup of breadcrumbs
2 eggs beaten
|Farm fresh egg! So orange and colorful!!!!|
Using a grill pan or broiler sear these beauties until browned on both sides (aprox 5-6 minutes)
|Voila! Happy Hippie Crunchy Dinner for One|
|Waterfall of pure happiness aka Guinness!!!!|
