Veggie burgers are not just for summer. This recipe is perfect for this time of year because they are best cooked on a stove top. They are also healthier than most vegan burgers I have tried because of the beans and quinoa.
I recommend serving alongside fresh veggies. Also, use any leftovers the next day on top of a salad for a crunchy-satisfying meal.
I also like to serve mine with a slice of Chao Cheese, tomato and a simple sauce made with 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Pesto Vegenaise and 1/4 cup Sriracha.
OK, please don’t laugh out loud when I tell you I was in the mood for chili when the Southern California temps dipped into the low 60’s! Since I was born and raised in upstate New York you think I would be used to below zero temperatures and mounds of snow. Needless to say, I prefer palms to pines and sand to snow.
My husband cannot handle spices very well so this recipe is a mild version of chili but if you like a bit more heat, increase the chili powder from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbl. Also, this calls for 2 cups of water to make the chili more soup-like but if you prefer it super thick, decrease it to 1 cup.
