Vegan Spicy Courgette/ Zucchini Burgers with Harissa Mayo (gluten-free friendly)
Protein is one of the most essential nutrients for our diet. Homemade veggie or vegan burgers are an excellent source of protein. According to an article that I read before, we can easily get enough protein for a plant-based diet. Like beans, lentil, legumes, tofu or soy products, quinoa or other whole grains, nut, seeds, or nut butter, seitan, tempeh, or protein powder.
Remeber my latest post, Spiced Beet Burger? It is my favourite lunch recently.

Vegan Chilli Beans Burger with ‘Cheesy Corn Sauce’
The heatwave has been attacked England in the last few weeks badly. Heatwave in England normally stays for few days maximum every year. But this year seems like to stay for longer. Of course, people won’t like the cold, damp and miserable weather in the long winter, neither do I!
These vegan sausages can turn into the vegan burger, are packed with spices, herbs and a hint of lemon zest – healthy and seriously satisfying. Also, if you adopt the gluten-free oat flour, it can make someone has gluten intolerance smile!
Spicy Lentil, Cauliflower Patties/ Burgers with Sriracha sesame sauce
Spicy Lentil, Cauliflower Patties/ Burgers
Just bought a large cauliflower from our local bargain corner, what a happy day!
Can’t make the decision to choose which recipe I will use, because I got lots of idea in my mind, such as: cauliflower cheese, macaroni cheese with cauliflower, stir fry,…………but that’s too simple and I want to have a bit challenge. An idea came up to my mind instantly, I remembered that I read some blog before, they made some good idea with cauliflower, why not I have a try.
I remembered I had this burdock burger long time ago, it was from Hong Kong. But I still could remember the taste. Nowadays, we can buy the fresh burdock root from chinese supermarket, but not cheap. But I saw a pack of frozen burdock, it is from Japan, and it shredded already, so I bought one pack to try to make this burger.
Can’t wait to make this patties/burgers, when I read or local Aldi’s magazine. It has few recipes printed inside, but few of them are vegetarian, even this burger is not vegetarian, but I just love it. So, I want to exchange some of the ingredients and add more herbs, spice in it, and create this lovely burger. I don’t think vegetarian is awkward, just use your passion and creation, of course by your heart, it will be a wonderful dishes. And it can be more delicious than the meat as well.
