Double Drive-Thru Veggie Burgers
Vegan chef Chloe Coscarelli is famous for her deliciously charred veggie burgers. For a “special sauce,” she swaps out mayo for silken-tofu mayonnaise to make a tangy-sweet vegan take on Thousand Island dressing.
Most veggie burgers are a pale imitation of the all-beef original, but even with ordinary black beans in place of Rancho Gordo Midnight beans, these robust patties with roasted red pepper spread are moist and delicious. The spread doubles as a fantastic dipping sauce for French fries.
The red lentils in these spicy, Indian-inspired vegetarian burgers don’t need to be soaked and cook superquickly. What’s more, they are rich in B vitamins, fiber and folate, which help fight heart disease and birth defects.
Banish all thoughts of gluey morning oatmeal. These crisp oat cakes may change the way you think about the grain. The batter is sticky; so it’s easiest to form the cakes right in the pan rather than by hand.
