Veggie burger salad

20130703-122628.jpg

My favorite way to eat a veggie burger! Yum. Especially since I’m mostly off bread. Just ate this for lunch. You need:

Salad:
Greens (in this photo I used chard, but you can do anything: spinach, mixed greens, etc.)
Tomatoes (chopped coarsely or halved grape tomatoes)
Avocado (as always, the crucial ingredient! Use 1/4-1/2 an avocado and coarsely chop it up)
Anything else you’d like to add! Onion, cucumber, celery, bell peppers, whatever floats your boat! And whatever you have lying around.

Veggie burger:
Any veggie burger will do the trick! Store-bought or homemade. If you are buying one, READ INGREDIENTS! Lots of veggie burgers are not vegan because they have egg or occasionally cheese. Look for ones made with whole ingredients such as whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds and of course, veggies. Also if you are watching your sodium look at that too because all frozen prepared foods can be high in sodium.
Better yet, make your own!
*note: if you are not going to eat all the veggie burgers just cook what you want and keep the rest of it in a plastic container in the fridge…just cook them when ready to serve!
The one pictured is the same as the raw veggie burger recipe I just posted but I cooked it (just in a small frying pan on medium-low heat a few minutes on each side–be careful because it’s easy to burn it like I did…notice the blackening…but it was still tasty! 🙂
There are tons of great veggie burger recipes out there!
Here are just a few:
beet burger

red lentil burgers

BBQ lentil burger

raw almond flax burgers

maple pecan sweet potato burgers

Here is a great general formula:
veggie burger formula from NoMeat Athlete

Dressing:
Your favorite vegan dressing! If you do store-bought look for one low in added sugar and random funky ingredients…just a few wholesome ingredients is best!
I used my maple mustard dressing that I previously posted.

To make:
Cook your burger.
Prep all the salad ingredients and put them in a large bowl.
Put the burger on top! (Either chop beforehand or put it on and cut with your fork as you eat.
Dress the salad!
Enjoy!
