I've experimented with countless combinations and approaches to veggie burgers, and I have my personal preferences: varied and creative herbs and spices, ample use of beans and lentils to add protein and texture, and the unexpected inclusion of veggies. What I love most about veggie burgers is their versatility. The only downside to veggie burgers is that there's a learning curve involved. 1. That said, you don't have to be religious about the three category rule. 2. Regardless of your burger base choice, you'll want to be sure that texture exists. 3. 4. And as for toppings?

84th&3rd | Spicy Carrot, Tomato and Lentil Soup I love soup. I know, it’s a big statement. There is this little cafe downstairs from my day-job office. They are friendly, and they make a good cup of tea and they have soup at lunch….$8.50 soup. It does come with lovely bread, but really, $8.50? It is not any more expensive, and is actually at times cheaper, than any of the other cafes around. This soup was inspired by one of their regular ones, and it is so simple I have made it twice already. Also, winter is really getting to me this year. At $8.50 a bowl I had to give this a go. Spicy Carrot, Tomato and Lentil Soup Ingredients: 500g [1lb] carrots – approx 3 large or lots of small ones 1 large brown onion 1-2 cloves garlic 2 cans chopped tomatoes in juice* 3/4 cup dry French Green Lentils* 3 cans stock [or water with 2 tsp stock powder] 1 Tbsp Italian mixed herbs 1-2 tsp hot paprika [optional] Olive Oil, Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper Full Method in Under 100 words: Add lentils and spices and stir for a minute or two to combine.

Tomato Sauce From Scratch August 1, 2008 Tomato Sauce From Scratch by IsaChandra At the end of the summer you might notice your Italian American friends unable to play croquet with you for an entire weekend because they’re “making sauce.” I was always really jealous of this ritual. Jealous because it was the essence of a domesticity that always seemed out of my reach. Homemade tomato sauce in all its glory While looking for some info on this here internet, I didn’t really find any really good directions for from scratch tomato sauce, so hopefully this little photo essay will be helpful. Michelle and I were painfully naive when we thought we would actually make enough sauce to jar it for the winter. Okay, make with the sauce! At least three big mixing bowls since there will be lots of transferring and prepping going on.A lot of ice for shocking the tomatoes once they’ve been blanched.An immersion blender or just a regular old blender.A big gigantic pot, or what I call a “soup kitchen pot.”A slotted spoon.

Zucchini Ribbons « Cooking Cleverly For the first few months I lived here, I lived mainly off of pasta. In the past, I’ve tried to avoid such a large pasta intake – not only does it get boring, but it is usually some sort of carbohydrate-heavy dish drenched with fatty toppings. Despite these usual fears, though, pasta was a safe option in a world of unknown and un-findable food. Having explored the grocery stores a bit and discovered some delicious Indonesian dishes, I am again veering away from pasta. Zucchini is not something that has interested me much in the past. Now, I have. This makes for a super healthy, tasty, and practically calorie and fat free snack/side/meal. IngredientsZucchini Lemon Salt & Pepper Galic Olive Oil 1. 2. 3. Like this: Like Loading...

Tom's Kitchen: Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Chile Pepper When you're cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner, you want at least one super-easy side dish to create time for wrestling with the turkey and making complicated desserts. I've got one for you: It's simple, quick, involves a vegetable that's in season across much of the the country, and really delicious (so I think). I'm referring to roasted broccoli. Broccoli is a somewhat loathed vegetable, probably because it's often steamed to the mush phase and spiced with little more than a squeeze of lemon. This is a dish to convert the broccoli-skeptical. And while it works well as a side, you can also turn it into dinner by tossing it with pasta, parsley, toasted walnuts, and grated hard cheese. Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Chili Pepper Serves four as a side 2 big heads of broccoli Extra-virgin olive oil Sea salt Freshly ground black pepper 3 cloves of garlic 1 fresh red-hot chili pepper; or a good pinch of crushed chili flakes A lemon for squeezing; or red wine vinegar
