You know when you’re starving and you go check the fridge repeatedly thinking you’re going to find something new? I actually found something today. At the very back of the fridge, sat a pack of Isadora’s Go-Nuts Veggie Burgers (the first ingredient is walnuts) leftover from my Christmas Gift Guide segment. They were a couple weeks old, but, as I suspected (and as per usual), they were just fine (never trust best before dates). Of course, I didn’t have burger buns (no way was I going to go out and get some) so I used bread. Here are all the delightful details about today’s extremely nutty burger.
2 pieces bread
2 Go-Nuts Veggie patties (from SPUD)
A few seriously thick slabs of nut cheese (I love Chef Karen McAthy’s)
A thick slather of hummus (I used Bean Boy found at Vancouver Farmers Markets)
As many sauteed chanterelle mushrooms as you can possibly fit on top of your patties
A handful of greens (like pea shoots, spicy radish, power kale…I used spicy radish from my Urban Cultivator)
Oil (for frying)
Splash of red wine (for the mushrooms)
- Sautee your mushrooms with oil and red wine (or port) in a pan until soft and maybe a bit browned on the edges.
- Cook your patties according to package instructions.
- Build burger! (See pic.)
