Ever have one of those nights when you want to just tell everyone to eat cereal for dinner? Well, that was me last night, but my husband suggested we do veggie burgers and sweet potato fries instead. Ok, not too much more effort than cereal I suppose, especially if you are very clever and only use one baking pan to make all of your food. Even better, with minimal effort you can make it a little more gourmet than you might imagine.
Slice 1/2 of a white onion and toss with a little olive oil and salt.
Place frozen sweet potato fries, veggie patties (any kind, but we love the Dr. Prager's California Burgers and Morningstar's new Chickpea burgers) and sliced white onions all on a single baking sheet (or two if you're cooking for many).
Sprinkle a little seasoning on the fries (I love Tony's!) and toss it all in the oven at 400 degrees. After 10 minutes flip the burgers, fries and onions, put it all back in the oven for another 7-10 minutes (watch for burning) and voila! Place burgers on lettuce or buns (up to you), top with avocado, lettuce, tomato and whatever condiments you love (me: Tribe's 40 Spices hummus; Sweetie: Wildwood's Vegan Garlic Aioli).
The best part is that everything is ready at once, no fuss, no extra cooking dishes, and who doesn't love yummy veggie burgers with sauteed onions and hot seasoned fries?
