Until this recipe I had never cooked with pearl onions. They are a bit of effort to remove the skins but can come off rather quickly with this method.
- Slice off ends and place pearl onions in boiling or hot water and then cool. The skins should easily peel off.
My friend had some leftover fresh herbs that I used to season the onions. I just used the entire stalk of herb and then removed before serving. If you prefer, you can chop the herbs before cooking and leave in the dish.
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.
