I like to try and invent a variety of veggie burgers and these seriously are amazing. Most veggie burgers have cooked peas and corn, which are two of my least favorite veggies. I prefer broccoli and sweet potato so that’s what I put in this recipe.
You can always bake them in the oven but I prefer the crispy texture that comes from pan-frying or grilling. If you want to bake, I would recommend coating the burgers in cornmeal first.
I used Cajun Seasoning for a little bit of heat but you can substitute hot sauce or eliminate it altogether. These burgers are gluten-free but if you want them to hold together better, add 1/2 cup of bread crumbs.
Burgers can be made ahead and frozen.
I lived in Kansas City for a time in my life and loved the taste of BBQ-sauce. I didn’t eat meat but found the spicy-sweet goodness was a perfect complement to french fries or baked potatoes!
Recently I saw Upton’s Naturals Bar-B-Que Jackfruit and decided to try to use it as a filling for enchiladas. They came out really great but may be a bit spicy for some people so try adding a little extra vegan sour cream.
I always loved my mom’s baked beans and she used a brand of canned beans that can only be purchased in the Northeastern United States. I have literally tried, for years, to duplicate the taste of those beans, along with my mom’s special additions.
Today, before a family picnic I experimented and came up with this dish. It was an immediate hit and a recipe I would like to share with you.
