I love veggie burgers. When I was younger, I would make my own veggie patties to fry and use on my burger, but these days I just grab some at the store. Fake meat burgers are great for this recipe; but use whatever you have. If it’s just a burger and bread, that works. If you have some greens that are about to go bad, and some leftover vegetables from the other night, use them! It’s hard to f*ck this one up.
- 1/2 onion*
- 1 bell pepper*
- 1 clove garlic*
- 1 veggie burger
- 1 egg*
- 1/4 c hummus*
- handful spinach*
- 2 slices of bread, or a bun*
This is a quick recipe! Fifteen minutes, and you’re ready to eat. Slice up your onion, bell pepper, and garlic while you have a pan warming on medium heat with oil. Throw your onions in the pan when it’s hot. Wait about 5 minutes for them to cook, before adding the garlic and bell pepper (we add them later so they don’t overcook or burn).
While you’re cooking your veggies, either microwave your veggie burger or put it on another skillet on medium heat to warm. As the burger is warming and if there is room, put some oil or butter down and fry an egg. The burger and the egg should cook within 5 minutes or so.
After the burger is done cooking, I throw a couple scoops of hummus on top and place a lid on the pan after turning off the heat; this way, the hummus warms without having to microwave it in a separate dish or anything. Toast your bread and prepare to plate.
Take your bread of choice and spread some more hummus on it (helps it not to be dry). Throw down your egg, burger, cooked veggies, and greens after which I like to shake a little zaatar on top. Zaatar helps give everything a bit more flavor! Now you’re ready to eat.
*Everything except the burger is optional here. Swap the veggies for ones you enjoy like squash, chilis, and mushrooms. Use whatever condiments you prefer. You can definitely take the bread out of this recipe and make your burger on just greens, tortillas, or anything you have. This recipe can absolutely be made vegan!
