Veggie Power

I’m pretty much obsessed with any and all veggie and/or bean burgers, so I was plenty excited to see this recipe on one of my favorite blogs. It was on the menu for lunch today.

I halved the recipe and only made a few changes: I didn’t have any pumpkin seeds, so I subbed almonds and chia seeds. Also, I added paprika and garlic powder while omitting coriander, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.

Yum! I served the burger on a toasted Oroweat Sandwich Thin with hummus and spinach. On the side, I had sliced strawberries and a few baby carrots with more hummus. The burger was awesome; the flavor with the spices was really nice and I loved the texture. I’m so glad I have two more left over!

And then came dinner! I was in the mood for veggies, so veggies it was.

I roasted broccoli and mushrooms, tossed with a little olive oil and salt, at 375*. The broccoli was in the oven for 30 minutes; the mushrooms for 10. Love roasted vegetables.

And on the side I made a mixture of whole wheat couscous and bulgur. To 1/2 cup of grains (for two servings), I added 3/4 cup water, brought it to a boil, then removed the pot from heat and let it stand for 5 minutes. I fluffed with a fork, added two tbsp. each of sliced almonds and dried cherries, and dinner was done!
