I’ve been craving a hamburger for the last two months. I usually eat one every two or three months to alleviate the cravings; however, I typically feel awfully guilty and extremely bloated after eating them (I guess the large side of French fries along with the burger will do it too —- but I am not ready to give up French fries yet!). So, I decided to make a burger on the healthy side
I looked up a series of recipes with chickpeas, lentils, kidney beans (you name it). The most appealing recipe came from the Food Network (Vegetarian section). I really liked the fact that the veggie burger mix included onions, scallions, and walnuts!!
I decided to tweak the recipe by adding minced garlic to the burger mix and by substituting mayonnaise with BBQ sauce
The end product was a juicy garlicky veggie burger with sautéed mushrooms and onions and BBQ sauce. It was great!
