Out of all the meal options available to us, here at Cali we think there are few that make mouths water more than a delicious, juicy burger. Whether it’s a sweet little slider or a beast with the lot, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t love a good burger. At Cali, we also love our veggies – like a lot! So when we were asked if we thought we could find a veggie burger that didn’t make us feel like we were missing out on the meat, we jumped at the challenge! And, lo and behold, we found it!… “The Beet Burger”, discovered over at one of our favourite foodie blogs “Green Kitchen Stories”. So here’s the recipe for Cali’s recommendation for the ultimate kind of guilt free veggie burger.
So, what makes this My New Roots mac ‘n’ tease recipe so good? It’s vegan! Not one speck of cheese or milk or butter or cream in sight. Nope. Instead the delectable sauce is a winning combination of roasted butternut squash, garlic, creamy butter beans, and cheesy nutritional yeast. Although not exactly like the cheese sauce of yore, it is still completely smooth, creamy, rich, and deeply satisfying when combined with fat noodles and the most amazing non-breadcrumb-topping made out of sunflower seeds. That’s right.
