I got a big ass homegrown zucchini from a family friend the other day and already have pickled, sautéed and grilled it. The funny thing is it’s so damn big there’s still more than half left. I love zucchini and there’s something about homegrown that tastes so much better. Tonight I decided to make some veggie burgers…
Shredded and squeezed the zucchini to release excess water and set aside
Chopped 1 onion and 4 cloves of garlic
Bread crumbs and eggs help bind everything together
2 cups of shredded zucchini, 1 chopped and sauteed onion, garlic, 2 cups of bread crumbs, 2 eggs, 1 cup of cheese and some tomato paste for flavor makes about 5 patties.
After everything is mixed together it shouldn’t be watery. If it is add more bread crumbs…
Giving the patty a good sear on both sides help give it great texture
I don’t eat this sandwich because it’s healthy, I eat it because it tastes really fucking good and easy to make.
Ingredients- Avocado, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, mayo and mustard.
I first made these tacos when I came home one night from a bar and had nothing to eat. I think that’s when my culinary creativity comes out the best but usually I’ll make the same dish again sober and it definitely wouldn’t be as good as it was 4 shots and 5 cocktails under. Not the case with these tacos, after I made them that night they’ve become a staple in my diet. The best thing about these are they’re pretty healthy and for not having meat they fill you up.
- Dice up potatoes, skin on, brush with olive oil and season with salt/ pepper and whatever else you like.
- Throw em in a preheated oven 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
- While those are in the oven heat up some re-fried beans (add cheese and hot sauce if you want), chop up some cilantro and onions for garnishing and attempt to make some salsa (tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, jalapenos, lime, salt/ pepper and olive oil).
