Thought I'd share with you a little experimental lunch I whipped today that turned out pretty good. I'd been hearing a lot about veggie burgers. And honestly, I was dubious. I'm definitely a carnivore, but I'm not a frequent meat-eater. Plus, I'm attempting to bring healthier stuff into my diet, remember? So being curious about these veggie burgers, I picked up a package on my last grocery run. I chose MorningStar's Spicy Black Bean Burger. The "spicy" description lured me in. These patties are made outta black beans, roasted corn, brown rice, and chilli peppers.
I sauteed half a yellow onion and a few sliced white button mushrooms in a bit of olive oil. (My measurements are sooo exactly, I know...) I microwaved the patties to thaw them a bit, then finished cooking them with the onion/mushroom mix. I piled the patties and all onto sandwich-sized pita bread. And took my first doubtful bite. Delish! The patties didn't have the "kick" to them that I expected. (I am a leather tongue after all.) But I'm pleasantly surprised. I foresee much more eating of veggie burgers in my future. They're filling, too. I made two but could only eat one and a half before becoming quite full.
For your convenience:
Yellow Onions + White Button Mushrooms
Do any of you eat veggie burgers? What do you put on 'em?
