I’mstarvingdinner: squash smothered veggie burger with TWO pickles

I spent the afternoon moving furniture and finally re-covering and fixing the broken chair that’s been staring at me, pitifully, from the corner for weeks. It’s funny how those projects start to spiral. First, I was tidying, then vacuuming, then steam cleaning, then thinking, plotting, taking off my glasses, putting my hair up, moving heavy furniture around my bedroom, re-vacuuming, hitting up the extra fabric to see what I had, figuring out how to load the staple gun (How do I forget how to do that every, single time?) and getting to business! Phew! I am tired and I was hungry!

"new" chair!

No eating air and fruit tonight. I decided on a squash smothered veggie burger and I love Brussels sprouts lately : )

Brussels sprouts:

  • 5 sprouts
  • TBS coarse grain mustard
  • TBS pepperocini juice from the jar
  • salt and pepper
  • splash of hot sauce
  • sprinkle of black sesame seeds for fun

Roast in the toaster oven for 30 minutes while the frozen veggie burger cooked in a pan. I didn’t worry about flipping them midway and they were just right.

Smothering for veggie burger:

  • 3 slices yellow squash, julienned in shape
  • 5 small mushroom caps, cut the same way
  • dash cayenne
  • dash Italian seasoning
  • salt and pepper

Cook in a pan until lightly browned. Finish with the veggie burger.

Veggie burger:

Sear on both sides in a pan, then cook on lowest setting under a lid to heat through.

You could cook any way you like, though, of course.

I ate on a wheat bun, 3 pieces of crunchy romaine lettuce, more hot sauce, creole mustard, banana peppers and two pickles! Because I’m wild!
