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.

Dee’s Vegan Thai Quinoa Veg Pots in Puff Pastry with Chilli Sauce

5 Dec

I wanted a quick, tasty recipe that was easy to whip up with just a few ingredients, especially for this time of year as we can all be so busy.

You will need:
Your favourite Dee’s Veg Pot. (I used the Thai Quinoa Veg Pot)
1-2 sheets of readymade puff pastry
100ml Sweet Chilli Sauce

Method:
Depending on the time you have, you can do it the quick way or the longer way.

Quick method
Place your pastry sheet on your work surface.
Divide into 4 and place some filling on each, then roll up as if you were making a sausage roll.
Make a few small cuts on the top of the pastry and bake in the oven at 200c for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

Longer method
Place the pastry on your work surface.
Using a large cookie or scone cutter cut out circles.
Place in a cup cake tray and using a fork make some indentations on the pastry so it does not rise too much.
Put some filling in the centre and bake for 10-15 minutes.
Serve with sweet chilli sauce or even glaze with the sweet chilli sauce and bake for 2-3 more minutes.
Enjoy , Eoin.

Top Tips:
Use whichever method works best for your timeframe.
Think about adding a combination of different fillings from the Dee’s “veg pot” range.
Make sure you read the ingredients listed on the puff pastry to make sure it;s 100% vegan. Tesco is normally where I get mine.
