Gluten Free Veggie Quinoa Lentil Burgers

Quinoa Burger

This week has been the introduction of a new month, a celebration to freedom and the 239th birthday of the United States of America. This weekend for the 4th of july (the independence of the United States of America) is an all American tradition of grilling burgers and hot dogs, enjoying the warm summer days, and enjoying any outdoor resources. My 4th of July couldn’t have been more awesome without the company of my vegetarian big family. We definitely fired up the grill with all of the vegetarian options, some family and friends camped outside, and spent our days at the river, swimming, slip and sliding, shooting bows and arrows and of course shooting guns…definitely did it the American way…only in a Vegetarian American Way!!! Below is my gluten free veggie burger I want to share with you all because it’s so practical and not only do I use them in burgers but also in spicy asian wraps, or Mediterranean with hummus and avocado. They are full of fiber and protein, and will satisfy any hungry taste buds!

Sweet Sesame Chicken Sandwich

Sweet Sesame Chicken Sandwich

sweet sesame chicken sandwich

This is my first post for The Vegetarian Blog and this sandwich is the guinea pig. My little brother (Neela) happened to be hungry while I was in the middle of setting up the vegetarian blog. He said he was hungry so I seized the opportunity to make a sandwich and use this for my first post! I have no experience with blogging but I’m ready to start this experience and share my passion for cooking with all of you!

2 slices of sourdough
1 tsp of sesame oil
1 tsp of sesame seeds
3 soy chicken drumsticks; chopped
Tsp of sugar
1/4 sliced onion
drizzle of hoisin sauce
3 tablespoons of sweet chili sauce
a small bunch of chopped cilantro
salt n peppa!
shredded lettuce
a drizzle of spicy dijon mustard
big ol’ spoon of vegenaise
a slice of mozzarella cheese

In a small pan heat up a tsp of oil on a medium flame, when hot, add the sesame seeds, onions and the drumsticks. Stir fry together for two minutes and add sugar, hoisin sauce,and the sweet chilli. Meanwhile place your slices of bread on the toaster and re-stir the soy chicken. Turn off the flame and place a slice of cheese on top and cover with a lid so it melts. Meanwhile add mustard and vegenaise on your bread and pick up the stir fry chicken carefully with a spatula so that the cheese remains on top, place over the bread and add lettuce and cilantro. Cover your sandwich with remaining slice. Enjoy!
