Hey summer, bring it on!!!!

Vegan Burgers and Potato Salad


This is one of our favorite meals to throw together for a BBQ, to show everyone that being vegan doesnt mean you cant have a grill out!!!

Vegan Burgers

Ingredients:

1/2 c. bulgar wheat

1 1/2 c. water

2 T. vegan bouillon

1 tsp. black pepper

1/2 tsp. red pepper

1 1/2 tsp. sage

1 tsp. paprika

1 tsp. thyme

1 tsp. garlic

1 tsp. onion

1/2 tsp. salt

1 T. Braggs (soy sauce)

1 T. olive oil

1 T. favorite BBQ sauce

Bring all of these ingredients to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. Take off the heat and set aside.

Blend


1 c. lima beans

2 T. favorite BBQ sauce

1 T. hot sauce (we LOVE hot cock)

2 T. pus free milk

Blend these ingredients until smooth, then stir in with your first concoction!

Mix in:

2 T. cornmeal

1/4 c. rolled oats

1/2 c. breadcrumbs

2 T. wheat gluten

Now you are ready to ball these up and flatten into patties, if you like them to fit a bun you should get about 4 patties out of this batch! Either pan fry with a bit of oil, or throw them on the grill!!

My FAMOUS Vegan Potato Salad (you wont be disappointed!)

Ingredients:

8-12 medium sized potatoes (if you have a small family, but if you need more this recipe is easily doubled!)

2 small onions (finely chopped or put thru a food processor)

4 or 5 cloves of garlic (depending on your taste, we use more!)

1 container of veganaise

1 container of vegan bacon bits

The following spices are approximate, and just use them to your own taste!

2 T. dried dill

1 tsp. dried garlic

1 tsp. dried onion powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. celery seed

1 T. yellow or spicy brown mustard

Dice up your potatoes, boil them until they are done but not overdone, I personally dont care of mashed potato salad, I like potato chunks! I usually dice up my veggies and get everything all set while the potatoes are boiling. Drain your potatoes and put them under cold water. Once they have cooled you can ad them to your spices, veganaise, and veggies. Mix it up, then add the vegan bacon bits and VOILA! Vegans and non vegans love this recipe, ask my gramma! Enjoy!

SMILE!
