Meatless Burgers

Southwest Burger
I am not a vegetarian.  I could never be a vegetarian.  I am definitely a meat lover and at one point in my life I would have been totally game to eat my weight in Delmonico steaks, but I recognize that I need to live by the "all things in moderation" saying.  That being said, having a dinner without meat shouldn't be that hard, right?  I have never had an urge to have a veggie burger or any other kind of meatless burger, but I figured, what the heck?  I'll try anything.

Tonight, I made the hubs another recipe from his Men's Health Magazine.  I made him the Southwest Burger from the most recent issue and, yes, it was meatless....and very tasty.  While I sauteed some sugar snap peas, red bell pepper and a little garlic in some cooking oil, I also cooked the burgers.  The hubs grilled the pineapple and the buns for our burgers.

The grilled pineapple made the burgers very juicy and the bbq sauce made it very tangy.  The burger itself was made with quinoa, oats and black beans and was very filling.  I must say that I am surprised that I liked it as much as I did.  I will definitely have it again.

I had a veggie burger and lived to tell the tale....
