I think all vegan cookbooks should have at least one burger recipe, and until last night, I didn't have one for my Southern vegan cookbook. Now I have this tasty Black-Eyed Pea & Brown Rice Burger:
Luckily, I had a couple cups of cooked black-eyed peas in the freezer, so making this was a snap. It's loaded with veggies, some spicy jalepeno, rice, peas, and seasonings. But I think it needs a little more of something before it's ready to go.
It wasn't bland, but it didn't blow me away either. I honestly think the main missing ingredient is a sufficient amount of salt. And maybe something more tomato-y, like tomato paste. I'll work on these and get back to ya.
On another note, I just made whoopie pies (pics tomorrow, I promise!) and not only did I lick the chocolate batter and frosting from the bowls, I also ate one and a half whoopie pies after I finished sandwiching the frosting between the cookies. And all this about 30 minutes before my bed time! I feel like such a lard ass ... does anyone else have a problem gorging when they bake?
