Burgers…Veggie style

As a resolution or “goal” for this year, I had aspired to reduce the amount of meat that I eat on a regular basis.  In the past couple of months, I have really started holding myself to that goal.  I’ve introduced various new meals to my repertoire.  I’ve begun purchasing tofu on a regular basis and I’m big, big, big on beans.  Personally, I set this goal for myself for several reasons including health factors, a sustainable diet and some of the ethical issues with how a lot of the meat in this country is produced.

I’ve been dying to make some really delicious veggie burgers.  I really don’t like the ones from the store, plus they’re expensive and not all that satisfying.  One of my co-workers has a child who is a vegetarian.  She cooks a lot of her food and one of the things that she talks about a lot is making mass quantities of veggie burgers.  Thus, the craving that I’ve been having! I wanted to find something healthy, delicious and relatively easy to make.  I searched around and ended up on a recipe from a blog that I frequent…… 101 cookbooks (Heidi has a new cookbook!)  I modified the recipe only slightly to incorporate fresh parsley and cilantro from the farmers market.

Here are beauties in pictures.

I made a whole batch and froze over half of them so that I will have them for quick lunches and dinners.   Rather than serving with a bun, I split them in half and put some baby lettuce, additional sprouts and a sprinkling of feta cheese in them.  And I can attest that they are sooooooooooooooo yummy! If all of my new recipes taste this good, I should have no problem greatly reducing the amount of meat in my diet.  Happy eating!
