You just need to know what to put in between those two bread buns. (Then again, some burgers don’t even have bread!)
There’s a whole variety of stuff you can choose to make. Today’s feature has got sweet potato and kidney beans for the burger patties. The original recipe is vegan, but I did add an egg in mine and if I’m not wrong vegans don’t take eggs. So it’s not vegan anymore! But in true Ely style, it’s been given a twist.
Together with some fresh vegetables on the side, I think I felt pretty good eating this burger. Thanks to the potato it’s slightly sweet, which is a tad deviant from the usual savoury taste.
A few months ago, I decided to pick up simple, healthy cooking. I admit I used to be really afraid of the kitchen, and a tad too apathetic as well — “What’s the big deal with cooking? It’s dirty work and time-consuming. I just want to have food on my plate and to eat it.”
Yet, as I’ve discovered, it’s really not that hard once you get the hang of it. In fact, I dare say I’ve been drawn to the Dark Side: addiction to cooking! 😀
Why I say this is particularly fun is because staying on campus means I’ve got limited grocery supplies in the fridge. Each weekend I’ll stock up at the local supermarket and whatever I get has to last me the week (painful, I know). And so I took it upon myself as a challenge to create healthy, yummy dishes in whatever combinations my taste buds deem fit. It’s all like a game, really!
Today’s feature is something I created last week for lunch.
It’s got the right mix of vegetable, protein and oil so I’m taking a bet here by saying it’s a pretty decent addition to your meal!
