This is somthing I make all the time. Since my husband is a vegetarain, our freezer always has THE BOCA GARDEN BURGER PATTY. These are meatless patties made out of soy. Spice it up a bit, add a little Indian twist to it, and voila!!!!!!, a good, wholesome burger to enjoy.
I even pack it for lunch somtimes. The other day when I was making it, suddenly, The sandwich festival of 2008, hosted by anupama of Food-n-More came to my mind. I got my camera, and clicked a few pictures, and here I am sharing the recipe with you'll, and posting it as an entry to the event.
This burger could actually fit a vegan diet too, cause instead of real cheese, I used cheese alternatives, which I got from HENRY'S, a fresh produce store. I used the pepper jack flavoured ones.
You will need:
- burger buns- 4 slices halved
- garden boca patty- 2
- lettuce- 2 leaves
- red onions- 1/2
- tomato- 2
- jalepenos- 2-3
- cheese alternatives or regular cheese slices- 2
- maggi hot and sweet tomato ketchup- 2 tbsp
- butter- 1 tbsp
You have to:
- slice the tomatoes into rounds
- slice onions. wash and dry the lettuce leaves.
- heat butter in a pan.
- saute the onions, till caremalized. add little bit of the tomato sauce.
- in the same pan, heat the boca patty throughly.(these are frozen, so microwave it for a few seconds.
- slightly toast the buns, with a little more butter, in the same pan.
- take a plate. place the burger buns.
- place the lettuce.
- spread a little of the tomato sauce.
- place the patty on top.
- top it with the onions, and the round tomato slices and some chopped jalepenos.
- place the cheese slice. sprinkle some salt and pepper. close with the other bun.
note: this burger can have loads of variations. I somtimes put some coleslaw salad too. To give it a more indian taste, one can add green chutney. I used sesame buns here, coz that is what I had on hand, but any buns would be fine.
