Try these burgers and fries on for size!
They won't go to your thighs!
It makes 4 burgers, good sized ones. They taste like
the ones I got from a restaurant in C'ville, the
Blue Moon Diner.
It is really good and you can make it
like I do......
Toast the burger buns (the "face") in oil to brown (or cooking spray)...
Brown the burger in oil (or cooking spray)
place lettuce (red or green lettuce) on bread
sliced thin tomatoes
I use soy mozzarella, but you can use rice mozzarella slices
sauted onions and mushrooms
OMG, good and vegan and low in calories
1 lb cauliflower
*(I used 3/4 pound frozen cauliflower and 1/4 pound broccoli florets)
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1/4 cup chopped onion
Ener-G Egg Substitute for 1 egg, beaten
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch of pepper
Cracker meal or fine breadcrumbs (low carbers, use some low carb bread crumbs here)
Cook cauliflower in a little water until tender. Drain.
Put into a large bowl, and mash well. Set aside.
In a frying pan, saute` onion and carrot in a little oil until soft.
Add to mashed cauliflower in bowl. Cool.
Add egg sub, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Add just enough cracker meal so that the mixture can be formed into patties that will stay together
(not too wet or too dry).
Form mixture into burger-shaped patties.
Arrange patties on a sprayed baking sheet.
Bake at 300 F for 10 minutes.
Turn, and bake another 5 minutes.
Cool in fridge.
Put patties between sheets of wax paper, and then into ziplock bags.
Freeze patties until needed.
To Heat and Serve:
Reheat in oven at low temperature until just hot throughout.
Or panfry in a sprayed frying pan until just hot throughout
Or microwave about 2 minutes, turning over after 1 minute.
Here is the "fries" I make with my veggie burgers
Zucchini, cut in half horizontally...
scoop out the seeds
cut up like fries
preheat oven to 450 degrees F
place a small amount of oil (or cooking spray) on cookie pan
sprinkle with salt, pepper and curry powder
or your fave spices and herbs, toss to coat
bake until crisp and golden, flip and cook the other
