I’m thrilled to announce that I have found the perfect veggie burger! I’ve probably tried about 20 different recipes over the years (plus several kinds of packaged veggie burgers, which are way too expensive to have on a regular basis). Earlier this week, I wrote about the excellent burger buns that I made, and how they needed to be paired with excellent veggie burgers. I don’t know why I hadn’t already seen Angela’s fantastic veggie burgers, because I make something from her site about once a week. But thanks to your recommendations, I whipped up a batch of burgers yesterday. The recipe made enough for two meals for the three of us (huge bonus – I love having something in the fridge ready to go when it’s dinner time). And it got two thumbs up from both of my guys. I think it’s the first time in my life that I’ve actually wanted to go light on the condiments so that I can really taste the burger. If you have a food processor, this recipe comes together pretty fast. A lot of the ingredients need to be chopped or ground up (oats, bread, almonds, carrots), and I just did them each separately in the food processor before dumping them all together into my mixing bowl. The flax egg did a great job of holding everything together. I tasted the “dough” before I baked them, and could tell it was a winner. Then I was especially thrilled halfway through baking when I flipped them over and they didn’t crack or fall apart – they held their shape perfectly. If you’ve been looking for a great homemade veggie burger, I highly recommend them!
On to other things… I often get emails from readers asking me questions, or asking how I’ve handled various situations. Usually I just respond directly to the reader, but I think some of those questions might be things that other readers are interested in too. So I’m opening this up for reader questions and ideas. Is there something you’d like to see me cover that I haven’t? Any questions you’d like me to answer? You can leave comments or send me an email (babe at frugalbabe dot com) and I’ll try to incorporate your thoughts into some of my future posts.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
