a little sweet potato +
these are just a few of the delicious ingredients in the vegan burgers i happened upon at whole foods last weekend. i'm not a vegan. i'm not even a vegetarian, but i was looking for a healthy bite and stumbled upon these. i dabbled in the pescatarian lifestyle years ago when i lived in california and can't say i've really missed it much. i like meatballs with real meat and i love chicken wings, spicy. when i wasn't eating meat, i ate A LOT of tofu and tempeh and i gotta tell ya, it got old. if i had found this type of vegan alternative, which is actually made of vegetables and not a ton of substitute meat, i might have been able to go a week or so longer without meat.
i sauteed the patties in a bit of olive oil to get them nice & crispy, threw one in a whole wheat wrap, topped it with some avocado & called it a day. a delicious day. let me know what you think!
