I'm always game to try frozen veggie burgers because they are convenient and easy to make at home especially for a quick Meatless Monday meal. At Whole Foods the other day, I saw a packet of these Hilary's Eat Well Adzuki Bean Burger patties with green chili and cumin, and decide to try them.
What caught my attention right away is that Hilary's burger is vergan, gluten-free, soy-free, corn-free, yeast-free, nut-free, and is non-GMO Prject verified. Seriously, this sounded like my perfect burger. I was admittedly a little skeptical because minus all the usual suspects, veggie burgers can taste bland and have the texture of mushy saw dust.
Happily, this Adzuki Bean Burger is delicious. It's a new fave now! The cumin really does stand out but not obnoxiously so. I pan-fried my patty with a little olive oil, and then sauteed some red onions and cremini mushrooms. This patty is so easy to cook thatt in the cooking instructions they even include the toaster. No microwaving.
I melted some vegan Daiya Jalapeno Garlic Havarti wedge on top to make a cheeseburger, added a couple sweet pickle slices, and then rested everything on a bed of arugula. See, a vegan, gluten-free cheese burger can look good and be yummy!
