The Ultimate Veggie Burger
I always thought that veggie burgers tasted like weird dry hockey pucks. One would need to smother them with sauce in order to swallow them. That was until I tried this one.
It’s moist, meaty and with a wonderful combination of spices that you will never miss replacing these ones with beef. Every bite you take it’s memorable. There are so much flavor and texture. That’s why I call these, the ultimate veggie burger.
Last week I was dining with my mom in the Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont. There they have a delicious restaurant called Solstice. My mom ordered the veggie burger for lunch (yup the one you see above) and as soon as she took a bite, she fell in love with it. I tried it and immediately regretted ordering my dish. I wanted that burger!
My mom ordered the veggie burger for lunch (yup the one you see above) and as soon as she took a bite, she fell in love with it. I tried it and immediately regretted ordering my dish. I wanted that burger!
So my mom told the waiter: “My daughter is a chef and a very famous blogger and she would like to meet the chef for the veggie burger recipe” I wanted to crawl under the table and hide. How embarrassing! I vowed to myself to never let her drink a glass of Prosecco during lunch.
Anyway, Chef Benjamin Noe came out of the kitchen and gave me the recipe. How many chefs do you know give out their recipes so willy-nilly? Not only was this chef an amazing cook, he’s also very generous.
This burger is gluten-free, Vegan and very easy to make. It’s mainly made out of black beans, black quinoa, and veggies. The combination of spices is what gives this veggie burger the incredible flavor and aroma. Serve it with a toasted bun and some veggies and you’ll be hooked too!
Thank you, mom for embarrassing me and for getting this awesome recipe!
If you ever find yourself in Stowe, Vermont, stop by the Stowe Mountain Resort and enjoy a nice meal at The Solstice.
I hope you can try this delicious Veggie Burger at home. If you do, please upload a pic on Instagram and tag me @Livingsweetmoments or use the hashtag #LivingSweet. I promise to repost it.
