Burgers + Wraps + New Orleans Food!

I'm eating lots of whole foods these days, but some nights, you just need a burger. On Sunday night, I made these Guacamole Beyond Burgers with Spicy Sweet Potato Fries from Love & Lemons for Paul and I. Enjoyed while watching El Camino on Netflix.

The "fries" were made from fresh sweet potatoes and baked in the oven. And the burgers were topped with fresh guac!

Last Friday, I had a work lunch meeting at the Young Avenue Deli. They have a number of vegan options, but my go-to is always the Hummus Veggie Wrap with added fried tofu. Soft pita is spread with creamy hummus, plus, tomato, cucumber, and lettuce. The fried tofu makes it substantial. You can add fried tofu to any dish there.

Here are some Savory Oats from a few breakfasts ago! These have spinach, nooch, toasted pumpkin seeds, and lots of hot sauce.

My friend Susan has been on a New Orleans-style food kick, and she's gifted me some with leftovers. She said her Jambalaya with Vegan Andouille Sausage was too spicy, but she was wrong. It was perfect!

And earlier this week, she gave me some Vegan Gumbo (also with vegan sausage), which she said needed salt. Also wrong. It was expertly seasoned.

Such a lovely friend to be gifting you food! Sounds like she knows just how to cook for your tastes.
That hummus tofu veggie wrap sounds perfect. Adding tofu is always a solid choice.
