Farmers Market Veggie Burger

I usually do a traditional burger when I make up my veggie patties, so I liked seeing this different version by Shanti Ellis for a nice change of pace.

Farmers Market Veggie Burger

This is just a standard veggie burger patty, but if you want to spruce it up with fresh, colorful niblets from a local farmers market (or just the produce aisle at the grocery store), here’s a suggestion.

1 veggie burger of choice (I believe the one pictured is a Morningstar vegan patty)
2 slices of whole wheat bread (or a bun), toasted
1 slice of cheese
1 slice red onion
2 slices zucchini or yellow summer squash
1 handful sprouts (I used pea sprouts here, which are excellent)
olive oil (optional)

Slice the red onion and then cut in half to make two half-circle discs.  Slice zucchini lengthwise about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick.

You can either just use the zucchini raw, or if you prefer, you can saute it for a few minutes in the same pan you are using to heat up the veggie burger and sauteing the onion.

Toast bread.

On one slice of the toasted bread, we have a shmear of Vegenaise, sprouts, and tomato (I thought it would be fun to just use halved heirloom cherry tomatoes, but sliced tomato of any variety is obviously fine).

On the other side, layer the cheese, then onion, then zucchini, then patty.

Done!  : )
