October is vegetarian month! Many people don’t know but I was a vegetarian for six+ years and it was only last year that I slowly started to introduce it- and even then it’s hardly at all.
My problem always was that I love cooking. I also love eating. I love to appreciate food, and I realised the last time I was in Europe that so much of the food had meat. Luckily my brothers would always order delicious dishes so I was able to still get my vege dish, but taste some of theirs too!
I still haven’t ordered a meat dish in the past six or more years, but if my parents make a curry and the tofu happens to be cooked with the chicken- I’m not going to refuse it. I’d just pick the chicken out now.
I’m always on the hunt to find amazing vegetarian cafes or restaurants. Or places that just cook amazing vege food! One thing that is hard to find though is a delicious vege burger that is sold in supermarkets.
Don’t get me wrong I have found a fair few dining out, but the ones in the supermarket either contain 100+ ingredients or make me bloated and sick.
So I set my mind to finding a recipe.
And after a fair hunt and several kitchen experiments I am in love!
I’ve make these countless times and they are SUPER delicious. They taste great baked in the oven, fried or best of all BBQ-ed!
One thing I have found though is that to make the recipe a little cleaner is I sometimes use corn crumbs which are 100% maize.
What are you favourite vege burgers? Please hit me with them- I’m always on the look out for something new!
