My mother introduced me to Hilary’s Eat Well™ Veggie Burger a few months ago. One day, around lunchtime she asked me if I wanted to try one. When I looked at the package (I confess) – I decided to pass on the experience. How could I enjoy food that says, “gluten free, dairy free, soy free, nut free, egg free, yeast free, corn free, healthy fats” on the front of the package?
In true motherly fashion she convinced me to try it and whipped up a quick culinary experience that only a mom could do. There was no turning back – I have been hooked on Hilary’s Eat Well™ ever since. Veggie Burger, Adzuki Bean Burger, umm…I am going to need @Hilaryseatwell to keep making these delicious damn burgers…
I could go on and on all night but won’t – just go to the store and get some of your own. Need some help finding Hilary’s Eat Well™? Visit http://www.hilaryseatwell.com/
Here is an easy tasty recipe to get you started. Enjoy!
Five Spice Purple Cabbage
– Purple Cabbage (wash it and chop it up)
– Onions (chopped)
– Garlic (chopped)
THE SPICES (really it’s “5 herb” but “spices” sounded more fun)
½ teaspoon Oregano
½ teaspoon Thyme
½ teaspoon Basil
¼ teaspoon Rosemary (a powerful herb and like an overbearing boyfriend/girlfriend could get on your nerves – use sparingly)
½ teaspoon Dill
1 teaspoon of Brown Sugar
3 tablespoons of water
Salt to taste
Note: feel free to add more of these herbs if you want a stronger more fragrant taste
Sauté onions and garlic until fragrant. Add cabbage, water, brown sugar and mix together – sauté for approx. 3 minutes. Add spices and salt, mix, then taste. If needed add more spices. (Start the burger – see cooking instructions below) Continue to sauté cabbage for 3 to 8 more minutes, until cabbage turns bright purple – but no longer. Cooking purple cabbage any longer than this will turn it dark purple (almost black) and it will lose its flavor. Remove from heat and set aside.
– Onions (chopped into ringlets or however you prefer)
– Garlic (chopped fine)
– Hilary’s Eat Well™ Adzuki Bean Burger
– 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce (I use Annie’s Naturals)
Follow the cooking instructions on the package for the Hilary’s Eat Well™ Adzuki Bean Burger.
While the burger is cooking, if you have not already – chop the onions into the desired size (I like ringlets as they fit on top of the burger nicely). Once the burger is completely cooked, remove from the pan and place on the side.
Add onions and garlic to the pan and sauté until fragrant. Add the Worcestershire sauce and mix.
Plate your meal and serve! (onions should be placed on top of the burger per my pic…)
