Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I document my culinary adventures here.

Vegan burger patty with beet & sweet potato

Vegan burger patty with beet & sweet potato

Every week I find myself staring at a pile of veggies, in bits and pieces, in my fridge. While I love buying veggies, not every week are we able to finish all that before Saturday. Off late, I find myself spending my Thursday and Friday evenings trying out recipes that use a bulk of the remaining veggies and make some space for new grocery in the fridge. This week was one of those when I had a bulk of red beet and sweet potatoes in my pantry. There are a zillion things that one could make from these, but I felt like venturing a level beyond the usual and tossed them with some other amazingly nutritious stuff to form patties for our burgers. I am in love with vegan burgers these days. While they aren't the easiest ones to retain the shape and texture of, they do make some really hearty mid-week meals. We tossed the remaining patties in the freezer for one of those quick weeknight dinners. After all, busy days shouldn't end with boring dinners! Bon apetit!

Vegan burger patties are amazingly hearty for a weeknight meal. These can also be made ahead and frozen to be later served as an easy and quick weeknight dinner.
