As much as I love meat from time to time I really do desire a vegetarian meal. Most of the time this meal will come in the form of a variety of salads but not today… today I had a veggie burger!
Mash Direct are an independent, family owned farming and food production enterprise. They produce a huge selection of vegetarian meals including the burgers we had today – Vegetable Burgers with Cabbage. Don’t let the name mislead you, the burger ingredients are for more complex than just cabbage… we find in there potato, broccoli, cauliflower, parsnip plus the stated cabbage; all coated in lovely crisp crumbs. I’ve never even considered making a veggie burger myself but after tasting how delicious they can be I think I am a convert and now really want to give it a go myself 🙂
So I have declared that I didn’t make the burgers but I did create the salad and the dressing to go with it. When it comes to the actual salad, well… you can just pop into the bowl any veggies and salad leaves you have to hand… I will however share with you my Coriander and Lime Dressing recipe.
- 1 red chilli; finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic; minced
- 2 limes; juiced
- 2tbsp honey
- 1tsp balsamic vinegar
- 5tbsp olive oil
- Handful of fresh coriander; chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
Finely chop the chilli, mince the garlic, juice the limes and place all of the results into a mixing bowl.
Add the honey, balsamic vinegar and stir well.
Add the coriander and olive oil and stir until all ingredients are well combines.
Salt and pepper to taste (lemon pepper works very well).
Drizzle over your salad and enjoy!
The dressing will keep well in the fridge for a few days. I am not absolutely sure how long to be honest as it never survives in our house longer than 2-3 days anyways.
What do you think about our dinner today?
