Not Just Tofu

Recipe: What’s For Lunch?

In Cooking Tips, Recipe on October 14, 2010 at 3:04 am

Lunch for a vegetarian can become boring if you don’t think outside the box.  Yesterday, I made a veggie burger, a MorningStar Farms® Grillers® California Turk’y Burger.  I love the Griller Original but sometimes it just does not excite me.  So I tried this Turk’y Burger and decided to take it to another level.  First I cooked the burger for 1 minute in the microwave. While the patty was in the burger, I toasted my whole grain sliced bread.  I heated my mini cast iron pan with olive oil and sauteed green bell peppers, yellow onions, 2 cloves of minced garlic and 3 slices of pickled jalepeno peppers.  Lastly, I took the nuked patty and placed it into the pan, covered it with the veggies and covered it with a pan after a drizzled some water to create steam.

The assembly: Dress the toast with Dijon mustard and lowfat mayonnaise on one side.  Place the patty and the veggies on top of the slice of toast, add sliced tomatoes and sprinkle of shredded Cheddar cheese.  Top with the other side of the toast and walla!  Plate with some Sun Chips and lunch is served. If a picture is worth a thousand words…here is 1000 words worth.

You may not like the Turk’y Burger, my husband didn’t.  My husband is a big mushroom lover.  I created an open-faced mushroom melt for him to enjoy.

  1. I tried this tonight and loved it, thank you for the idea… i served it with a side of veggies and it was delicious!

  2. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Hi,
      Thanks for the constructive criticism. I am constantly trying to find the write format and fine tune content. I fight against myself in finding the right fit for me and my story. Give me a few weeks to fix it up. Thanks for the compliment on my writing, I take the most pride in that especially because that is what I studied in college the 1st time. Truly contemplating my 2nd year of culinary arts.
