Our new recipe this week is the fabulous naan burger, a dish we dreamt up whilst possibly under the strong influence of one two many curries. This is what happens when you try to combine an Indian dish with a burger, and, well, it’s pretty epic.
This is something I’ve always wanted to try, and it carries on our beloved trend of “putting stuff inside other stuff”. Rather than a traditional lasagne, this one is layered inside and around a butternut squash. There’s no pasta involved, which is great for those of you avoiding it, and it’s a lot healthier than the normal version.
This week, we decided to do something with that free sauce we picked up at the Foodies Festival. We wanted to create something based around a ragu sauce, and went for this tasty spaghetti ragu number.
It’s very simple – no recipe to speak of, you just cook the veggies and mince together and then add the sauce. The spaghetti cooks separately, and when they are ready, you combine the two together. Give them a good mix and serve with garlic bread and a generous scattering of grated cheese on top. Done!
On Monday, I posted a Vine recipe for our latest addition to pesto month – pesto mince burgers. Today I’m bringing you my review of those burgers, how they tasted, and how they could be improved!
I’m actually a little delighted that I’ve found a recipe for a veggie burger which is very easy and quick to make. There are just three ingredients in this burger, so it does not get much easier than that! Plus, you can take out the breadcrumbs and make it even simpler if you need to. We served them up with a rasher of (fake) bacon on top, and drizzled a bit of sour cream and chive or ketchup sauce on top. The results were simple yet delightful.
This pesto burger was just a little bit inspired, even if I do say so myself. I saw a recipe for a beef burger imbued with pesto, and decided to set about making it myself. I knew I was going to have to think of a vegetarian replacement, so my mind went straight to Quorn mince. I’ve never used it in a burger recipe before, so this was the chance to jump on the opportunity!
