There is a new commercial out for a certain chain burger that left Thomas craving a cheeseburger badly. (Where’s the beef?) I tried to get some Gardein burgers at WF on my way home, but they were out, so I grabbed some vegan Boca Burgers instead, and some sprouted grain buns. (BTW, I always feel goofy about the name since I live in Boca.) We noticed that these were surprisingly lighter in color than we remembered them being, and weren’t sure why. Did they change their burger formula? They taste the same.
Thomas jazzed these up by sauteing some onions and mushrooms and melting some Tofutti american slices on top. Lettuce, mustard, ketchup and hot sauce completed this quick and easy weeknight meal. He’s been trying to get this recipe for chickpea fries he found online worked out, and that certainly would have made a nice accompaniment. A post on his results on that will follow! : ) In the mean time, sweet potato oven fries are always a safe bet! Mmm!
