Everyone has their lazy weeknight meals. For some this involves a drive-thru window and a uniformed attendant inquiring, “If you want fries with that.” Personally, I try to avoid the fastest of fast food and do my best to only indulge in such cravings under extreme circumstance (i.e. long road trips on the highway, being stuck in the airport for hours, and of course killer hangovers).
While I’m not a vegetarian by any stretch of the imagination, over the years I’ve found that one of my favorite fix-it fast foods are the veggie burgers from Amy’s Kitchen. My personal preference is for the California Veggie Burgers which are made from a well-seasoned blend of grains, organic vegetables, mushrooms, and walnuts. I heat a patty, add a slice of pepper jack cheese and enclose it all on a freshly toasted whole wheat bun. I’ll generally serve this alongside a dish of couscous sprinkled with a little feta, basil, and sliced cherry tomatoes. The whole enterprise probably takes 10 minutes to make and is always satisfying and very tasty.
Amy’s Kitchen features a unique line of excellent veggie burgers ranging from the spicy Texas burger to the more hearty Quarter Pound version so I’m certain you’ll be able to find a style that suits your tastes and time restraints.
