Veggie Burger

By • July 30, 2012 • 4 Comments



Author Notes: I had to work very hard to find a decent veggie burger and every time I asked for a veggie burger with no meat in Fast food chains, I used to get some funny stares. I know the people on the other side of the counter used to feel quite bad since all I used to get were 2 pieces of bread with some lettuce sprinkled and a slice of cheese. The only burger I could eat was the BK Veggie Burger with Morning star farms patty but I stopped that now.I am sure I would have collected extra, extra pounds on me.So I have decided to make it at home.The Garam Masala gives that an Indian touch.Shri

Delicious. I made them today, with onion, zucchini and red pepper for veg. I used russet potatoes which seemed to need liquid, so I added 1/4 cup of the cooking water. They cooked up and browned beautifully with minimal oil. So goodbye Trader Joe's Masala Burgers -- I'm making my own!

Susan- :-) I am so used to it now. The best Vegetarian dishes I had were in Alaska, surprisingly, a place where I thought will be most difficult task to find Veg.

I was just at a restaurant that used to offer any of their burgers made with a veg burger in place of the meat. When I asked for it, a got one of those stares.
I have to try this soon!
