When you think of Summer bucket lists, you probably think of grilling or having a picnic. When you think of grilling and picnics, you probably think of hotdogs and hamburgers. Now, I used to hate hotdogs; I had this whole problem with food that jiggled but I have since seen the light and now am a fan of the grilled weenie. However, burgers… burgers are a different story. I have a severe aversion to them. It was this whole beefy, juicy slider fiasco of 2007 that I would rather not relive – not just for my own benefit, but for yours too!
SUMMER BUCKET LIST 7/30: TRY A VEGGIE BURGER
In an effort to bring different versions of burgers back into my life, I decided to make my own veggie burger. I found a recipe on my “PopSugar” App which called for a mixture of quinoa, chickpeas, barley, sweet potato, and peppers, among other seasonings. I didn’t have barley, but I did have brown rice. I also didn’t have red peppers, but I did have red pepper flakes! I baked them instead of frying them in a pan and I must say they turned out great! I lightly pickled some cucumbers and used fat free sour cream on the side! It was a great dinner and I am ready to eat it again tonight…make that right now!!
Let me know if you have amazing veggie burger recommendations!
