Hey there all of you who steer clear of red meat as I do :) Here's a grown-up burger for your grown up tastes. I came up this today, as I was wondering what to put on my burger as I didn't have any mushrooms. This is so good, I went to Wal-mart to stock up on peppers to roast for this sandwich. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did, and try it with my unfried sweet potato fries and tell me what you think about these recipes :)
- 1 hamburger style boca burger veggie burger (defrosted)
- nostick cooking spray
- 1 slice fat-free swiss cheese (I use Kroger brand or Kraft Free)
- 1⁄2 orange bell pepper, seeded, roasted, cooled then peeled, sliced into strips
- 1⁄2 roma tomato, seeded and cut into thin strips
- 2 -3 leaves iceberg lettuce, cut into thin strips
- 1 hamburger bun, split, lightly toasted
- 1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise (I use Kraft Fat Free)
- Dijon mustard (I use the Wal-mart brand)
- Pan sauté the burger in small skillet sprayed with no-stick cooking spray until browned on both sides.
- Build your burger by spreading the mayonnaise on top half of bun, Dijon mustard on bottom half.
- Place the Boca burger on the top bun, followed by the swiss slice, then lettuce, then the tomato slices and last the roasted bell pepper slices.
- Wow that's a big burger!
- Enjoy a taste explosion with no meat!
- *To roast a pepper, slice in half and remove seeds.
- Press down on pepper halves with the palm of your hand to flatten.
- Place on a pan lined cookie sheet and broil at 5--°F until the peppers' skin begin to blacken and bubble.
- Remove from oven, toss in a zip top baggie, close.
- Set aside for about 15 minutes or until you can handle the peppers.
- Peel and use in recipes.
LOL, I've been making Boca burgers like that for years! I think the roasted peppers are what makes the dish. They're really yummy prepared that way. I also like them with onions and baby bella mushrooms sauteed in wine.
