strange, but true.

Every once in a while, you make one of those meals that tastes great, but just doesn't "go" together . . . tonight I am having one of those meals for dinner. Why? Because I have some fresh sage I need to use up, and thawing a lentil burger was quicker than thawing a whole bunch of white beans (which would have made WAY more sense with the pasta.) And things went crazy . . . because I usually top my lentil burgers with a dollop of vegenaise, but I stirred in a wee bit o' prepared wasabi this time round. Finished product:
example
On the left, some whole wheat macaroni with green beans, butter, garlic, fresh sage, and a little romano cheese. On the right, a teriyaki lentil burger with wasabi vegenaise.

Strange, but true. And tasty, too.

I do that type of thing all the time, kind of a mix-n-match dinner. And it's true, sometimes they are the yummiest meals.

Are your lentil burgers homemade? It looks good.

Kelly . . . shhh . . . don't tell anyone at work what I did! :)

Judy, yep, my lentil burgers are homemade. They are a little softer than a storebought veggie burger, but I LOVE THEM!! I based the recipe on an old turkey burger recipe I had . . . omitting the turkey, of course!

Freedom, right on!

This looks absolutely delicious Cath! teriyaki lentil burgers , YUM!

I am not a vegan myself but seeing the pics on your blog (and 2 others I often read on the same subject) I can see one could eat a tasty healthy diet with no probs.
