A & O Weekly Menu: 3.28.11

Happy Monday, Loves!

The recent NYTimes article has inspired me to try a new veggie burger recipe.  I love the chickpea version from 101 Cookbooks — the microgreens are the key ingredient– but I want less of a Middle Eastern flavor and more of the great burgery patties we get at Umami Burger and Houstons.  I’ll let you know how the jalapeno version, below, works out!

Do you make veggie burgers?  Do you like a specific bean base (black beans, chickpeas, etc.)? Or do you go more for mushrooms?  We’d love to know.



Lunch- Chickpea and grilled chicken salad over arugula

Dinner- Baked tarragon chicken with sweet pea mash and roasted carrots


Lunch- Grilled Chicken Soft Tacos with cabbage salad

Dinner-  Thai shrimp and halibut curry over rice with steamed vegetables


Lunch- Chicken and vegetable tortilla soup with fresh cilantro and avocado

Dinner- Grilled white fish with herb salsa, lemon roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables


Lunch-La Scala chopped salad with roast turkey

Dinner-Spicy beef and eggplant stir-fry over cilantro and mint jasmine rice


Lunch-Roast shrimp and glass noodle salad with roasted peanuts

Dinner-Jalapeno-spiced veggie burgers on sesame buns with garlic aioli and avocado.  Served with coleslaw and sweet potato “fries”

    We’ve been experimenting with veggie burgers too! Also inspired by 101 Cookbooks (the lentil version: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/vegetarian-lentil-burgers-recipe.html), we found that these resembled turkey burgers in their aroma and hearty look. VERY yummy. Using leftover bread for the crumbs kept it simple and potentially gluten-free. Best part? The leftovers froze well and freed us from constantly restocking the Morningstar Farms!

    That picture looks scrumptious! I think I’ve had mostly chickpea base, but I’d be willing to try anything. The soft shell chicken tacos sounds delish.

    I love all veggie burgers – but I think if I had to pick a favorite I’d say the black bean version! So versatile and they taste like beef burgers 🙂
