THAI BURGERS!

With law school I have been really MIA lately. Sorry friends. I hope I can make it up to you with these amazing and healthy protein-packed plant based burgers.

Hope you’re really hungry for something fabulous and easy to make. This is a perfect lunch or dinner option.

With summer coming to an end, I thought, why not make as many veggie burgers as possible? I LOVE LOVE LOVE Thai food, and I also love roasted potatoes. The veggie burger has a perfect little kick to it with some grated ginger and lime juice but is balanced with the sweet peanut sauce. The roasted potatoes are crisp and darkened to perfection. Do not be intimidated by making veggie burgers just because they look like a daunting prospect. Basically, you put everything in a big bowl and mash it with a fork. Enjoy burger babes!

Makes 8 large burgers

Potatoes serves 8

1 large sweet potato

2 cups vegetable stock

1 cup quinoa I used Red Inca

1 can garbanzo beans

1/3 cup chopped cilantro

1/2 cup chopped carrots

1 tbsp peanut butter

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 clove of fresh garlic

1/2 tsp powdered garlic

1 tsp lime juice

1/2 cup brown rice flour

Roasted Potatoes

1 5 lb bag of red potatoes

3 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

2 cloves garlic chopped

Peanut sauce

1 tbsp PB2

2 tbsp peanut butter

3 tbsp vegetable stock

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

  1. Start out by cooking the quinoa in vegetable stock and water until fully done. For the burgers, cook the sweet potato in the microwave for 5 minutes.
  2. Add all of the ingredients in to a bowl. Combine with a fork until a thick mixture forms. Its OK if the garbanzo beans get semi-mashed.
  3. Form the mixture into large patties. Cook at 375 for 40-45 minutes. They may take less time, so check on them at the 30 minute mark.
  4. Keep the oven at 400 degrees for the potatoes. Cut the potatoes in to think wedges and dress with the olive oil, garlic, and spices.
  5. Cook for 25 minutes, pull them out, and flip. Then roast for another 15 minutes.
  6. For the peanut sauce, you can actually make this in a cup in the microwave. Add everything but the PB2 to a mug and pop it in to the microwave for 30 seconds. Pull it out and add the PB2. EAT YOUR HEART OUT.
