Since I have become vegetarian, I am learning to cook for one as my husband has no interest in anything that I fix... unless it is pasta, as he is most happy with a package of meat.
He does not like salads and has little interest in veggies.
Needless to say, I am trying to eat well with a minimum of fuss.
I have tried some of the vegetarian substitute products. Some are quite good and others are dreadful!
I've found that the Morningstar Griller Prime Veggie Burger is a fine substitute for a burger by the time you load it up with the "fixins", and to my mind, that is what makes a burger so good.
The hatch chiles are now in the market so I thought I would get some to pile on my burger along with some fried onion rings for crunch.
The heat of hatch chiles will vary but the ones I purchased were really quite mild.
Just put them under the broiler, turning until blackened on the outside.
Place them in an enclosed container to cool and then peel the skin away.
Remove the stem. cut in half and remove the seeds, then dice and they are ready to add to your favorite dish.
Prepare the veggie burger by sautéing in a hot pan with a little olive oil until browned and cooked through.
Add your choice of cheese, cover the pan until the cheese has melted.
Put on a sesame seed bun and garnish with lettuce, diced hatch chiles and top with fried onion rings.
This is not difficult to prepare and is very satisfying... and you will not miss the meat!
