Dee’s Spicy vegan Bean Burgers with Miso Peanut Butter Sauce and Stir Fried Veggies.

29 Aug

I was shopping the other day and spotted some really nice oyster and shitake mushrooms. I was craving a tasty miso stir fry, so I bought a few extra bits and hey presto, this little gem was created!

You will need:
1 Pack of Dee’s spicy bean burgers
For the sauce:
3-4 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 tbsp of miso paste
1 tsp chilli paste
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 inch of ginger, chopped
1 handful of fresh coriander, chopped
Coconut oil /olive oil
300-400g of green veggies, sliced (such as – pak choi, spring onion, sugar snaps)
100-150g of mixed mushrooms, sliced
Optional (toasted sesame seeds)

Method
First make the miso sauce. In a bowl add the miso paste, chilli paste, ginger, garlic, coriander, peanut butter and fresh coriander. Add in a little water if it’s too thick, or even some coconut milk if you prefer. Then leave it aside until needed.
Cook the burgers as per the pack instructions and add a few spoons of the miso sauce on top and let them sit for two minutes off the heat. Cut them into large pieces and leave aside until assembly.
In a big wok cook, off your mushrooms and veggies until they’ve browned. Do this in small batches or even each item separately so you don’t overcrowd the pan. Add a few tablespoons of your sauce and cook for one minute more.
Place the pieces of burger on top of the veggies and serve with some salad or a portion of stir fried rice or noodles.
Enjoy, Eoin!

Dee’s Spicy Bean Burger Mini Sliders for National Burger Day. Yum!

27 Aug Close up of Dee's Mini Spicy Bean Sliders

1 pack of Dee’s Organic Spicy Bean Burgers
1(6) pack of mini slider buns

Topping
Sauces
BBQ sauce
Sweet chilli sauce
Red pepper and chilli relish
Sliced tomato
Lettuce/spinach
Onion
Avocado
Spring onion

Method
Cook Dee’s burgers according to instruction. I cooked mine in a frying pan and finished them in the oven.
When cooked I cut each one in 4.
You can assemble then how you wish but this is what I did:- (picture)

1) BBQ sauce, tomato and spinach
2) Red pepper and chili relish with blackened avocado.
3) Sweet chilli with spring onions

To fry the avocado. Heat a frying pan (no oil) on high, and put big slices or wedges on the pan and blacken slightly on both sides and season with a little salt.

Tip
If you can’t find mini slider (mini hamburger buns) you can always just cut buns to size or uses small bread rolls.

Other flavours/topping
– mushroom and onion
– vegan cheese burger
– Mexican salsa burger
– Batter ones etc

These are great for dinner specially if you have small kids. They can “build” their own tasty burger and it’s healthy too!

These sliders are also great as appetisers, finger food at a party or a snack for lunch.
You can make they as simple or as fancy as you wish.
