I am not a Vegetarian, I am not a Vegan, but sometimes I like to pimp my veggie burger. With some spices, homemade tricks and extra freshness you can turn even meat lovers green with envy. “5 Tips how to spice up your Veggie Burger” – and an easy recipe for a homemade cocktail sauce.
HOW TO PIMP YOUR VEGGIE BURGER
Tip 1: Spice it up
You can give your burger easily some extra kick by spicing it up with some freshly chopped chilies (or jalapenos). By the way, chilies contain antioxidants, including vitamin C that boosts your health – all reason for some extra spiciness!
Tip 2: Homemade Sauce
A homemade sauce can make a biiig difference, because it adds a little twist to the usual flavors. You can easily make a sauce yourself, like the recipe for the homemade cocktail sauce below and upgrade your whole meal.
- Dash of Cognac
- Grated zest of a lime
- Chopped red chili or chili powder
Tip 3: Fresh Herbs
I must admit, I am a fresh herbs junky. Whenever I can, I will add some extra freshness to my meals. Fill your burger with some arugula or Basil leaves for a fresh flavor and powerful vitamins – Basil is one of the best super foods, the list of health benefits is endless!
Tip 4: Avocados
Avocados are a must for every Veggie Burger. Nothing to add.
Tip 5: Fresh Bun
For a meatless burger it is even more important to have a delicious bun. Warm up your bread or use a fresh whole grain roll to make your burger more rustic and crunchy!
