California Veggie Burger

The simplest things are so often the best. I cook alot of food.  Some of it is complicated.  I like to see if I can make ketchup from scratch, or make homemade pasta.  Other dishes are strange and exotic.  I like to try new things, taste vegetables I've never heard of.

But I usually know the foods that are going to make people happy.  They - the foods and the people - aren't that complicated.

So when I decided to make a California veggie burger, I knew it would be a welcome familiar food amid the seaweed and daikon root. :-)

I used Amy's frozen California patty, which I highly recommend because it's one of the few truly healthy and delicious frozen patties out there.

Then, I stirred cumin, onion and garlic powder, red pepper flakes, S&P, and fresh chopped cilantro into vegenaise.  Toast a bun, add some vegan "cheese," sliced tomato, onion, avocado, and bean sprouts, and you're done.

The result was alot of excited "ooooh" and "yummmm!" and I only ate half my burger and gave the other half to Chris because he liked them so much.  So much of the reason I cook is because I love to feed people things that make them happy.  So if Amy's frozen boxed burgers does the trick - and, they're healthy and good for you - then so be it.
