Thomas makes Boca Burgers

Published October 9, 2011 by Vegan Derby Cat Party


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!

easy peasy: veggie burgers, corn & green beans

Published April 5, 2010 by Vegan Derby Cat Party

yesterday was a beautiful day in NYC, so we all headed out to central park to lounge in the grass. i had my appointment to meet with my recruiter today about a job, and just wanted to take it easy last night, so no heavy cooking for me. when we got back to brooklyn, we could smell burgers & bar b q, so i decided to have some veggie cheeseburgers for our dinner.  i had some green beans and fresh corn on hand, and dinner came together in a snap. (two veggie servings! i’m so proud.) the very simple recipes are down below.

vegan boca burgers

burgers all dressed up with corn on the cob and garlic green beans

Veggie cheeseburgers:

Vegan Boca Burgers, grilled
whole wheat buns, toasted
Toffutti american cheese slices, melted on to bun tops
tomato slices
veganaise, dijon mustard and ketchup

easiest corn on the cob:

3 tbsp. water
3-4 ears of corn, husked
2 qt covered microwaveable dish, or big microwaveable bowl covered with plastic wrap
salt & pepper

clean corn and place into dish with water. cover and microwave for 7 minutes to steam. remove from microwave when ready to serve, and butter, salt & pepper to taste.

easy garlic green beans: (this works great on asparagus too!)

3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced or minced
1 lb green beans, trimmed
1 tsp. lemon juice
olive oil
salt & pepper

pre-heat oven to 400*. put aluminum foil on a cookie sheet and mist it with olive oil. combine garlic, green beans lemon juice salt & pepper together and spread as a single layer, and spray with more olive oil. if you do not have a sprayer (i use a misto!) then a couple of tablespoons should work, so they’re coated.

pop it into oven for 15 – 22 minutes depending on your oven/desired texture. give them a stir halfway through. i left them in for about 22 minutes, and they were like green bean fries. at 15 minutes they were still plump. up to you!
