Dude, Spicoli Burgers Are, Like, Toootally Awesome!

Yup, got Dreena's newest amazing book, Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan and couldn't wait to try something from it. Her tasty concoctions couldn't come at a better time, what with all the aversions I've had to the same ol' same ol' as of late.

While I wanted to go crazy with baking, I have no maple syrup in the house, so I jumped to something savory for dinner. Spicoli Burgers are easy to whip up, use hemp seed (one of my favorite food items), and taste great! Actually, they've become my new fave burger of all time. They're even better leftover! (I tried leftover ones with a slurry of flax oil and balsamic vinegar as she suggests.....LOVE IT!)

I also was lacking the fresh red pepper for the burgers but omitted them and opted to use jarred ones I had in the pantry to make a fast roasted red pepper mayo (inspired by Veg. Times a few months back). With a side of organic fries this was a really tasty meal. I only wish I'd been a little less excited about it and remembered to roast my green beans to balance out my dinner!

Dude, you guys must, like, totally try these rad burgers, like, immediately!

Thanks for posting about that recipe. I just picked up Dreena's book the other day.

I'll be picking recipes soon and glowing recommendations are helpful!

Too bad you forgot the beans...I love roasted green beans.

That will be my next recipe to try...after the pumpkin chocolate pie, of course.

Your muffins in the last post are beautiful too.
