Leftover Curry Burgers

Ok. I accidentally took the last two days off from posting on this blog but that doesn't mean I was skipping out on Vegan MoFo. If you run on over to my IG account you'll see I was participating over there. Mainly because Monday, September 17th, my cool ass band, Sun Blood Stories, had a cool ass show with another cool ass band, OHMME. Luckily, the prompt was Cheap Sweets and earlier this month I went to my fave restaurant, Mai Thai, and the owner gifted my family a beautiful (and FREE) Mango Sticky Rice (and what's cheaper than free, amiright?). I feel like I nailed it.

Yesterday, the MoFo prompt was to make a dish with the intention of using the leftovers to create a dish the next day. Well, last night my amazing husband, Ben, made a delish curry for dinner. If you've ever made curry at home you know that literally every single time you make curry you've got leftovers for days and after awhile I can totes see folks getting bored of eating curry for a week in order to keep food waste down. Nailed it again.

If you're worried about food boredom let me please provide with a solution. You can make burgers out of your leftover curry. I know right?! If you don't have any great curry recipes, let me help: this is an award winning Thai Curry and this is Thai Curry in a hurry. Both would work great for this burger recipe but you could any kind of curry or probably soup.

The only thing you need to remember to do to make sure this is successful is mix the curry (or soup) with the other ingredients overnight, or perhaps before you leave for work in the morning and dinner will be better in a jiffy when you're ready.

Leftover Curry Burger

1 1/4 c leftover curry
1/2 c oats
1/4 c chickpea flour

  1. Mix all ingredients together and let them chill in the fridge overnight. 
  2. Form the mixture into patties and fry up in a saute pan until golden brown on both sides. 
  3. Assemble your burger: smother an english muffin with peanut sauce, layer on your patty, top with a thick slice of tomato, arugula, and mango salsa. Sriracha too if you nasty. 

Mango Salsa

1 mango, de-stoned and diced
1 jalapeno, minced
1/4 red bell pepper, minced
1/2 c cilantro, minced
juice from 1/2 lime
pepper, to taste
pinch of cayenne 
pinch of paprika 
  1. Mix all ingredients together.

Up next, I'm going to share with you a meal you can make for 4 grown ass adults that costs less that $4 TOTAL.

ICYMI, previously I made y'all some beautiful and EASY brunch Omelette Stacks. 

Can't get enough? I'm all over the place, let's follow each other (cause that doesn't sound creepy, at all!) InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.  Nothing makes me heart more full than when people let me know they've tried my recipes. If you wanna help make my heart happy you can # vegan4one, comment on the post, post on my wall, tweet at me; whichever socials you feel comfy with.

All the love,

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

Fried Peach Pasta Salad w/fresh mangoes & blueberries

But for 24,240 hours, you've patiently waited for me while I explored other things like getting married, expanding my reach on Instagram, getting a promotion, going on many tours with my band and recording two amazing (if I do say so myself) albums. And now I'm back for a little while because I missed you and I hope you missed me too.Speaking of missing stuff: ya know how in the Summer heat you can wait for Fall so you can wear your favorite sweater? And in the dead of Winter all you can daydream about how tan you're going to be come Summer? Well, Boise is officially entering the phase of Summer that makes you beg for Fall. With temps over 100 everyday it can be hard to cook, eat, or just function in general.

This quick and cooling salad is a one stop shop for a meal. It's got everything you need for it to be a successful single main dish, but it def works as side dish too.

Look a lot of people are dependent on salt to enhance the flavor of their food but here's the deal - too much salt (like anything else) is not awesome for your body, or your head, or your brain, or your mind (claps for anyone who can guess what movie that loose quote is from). I could go in to a long lecture-speech on the effects of eating too much salt but y'all ain't here for that and google is free. 
When you're ready to reduce your salt intake look for other flavor enhancers to make your meal's best attributes (a.k.a. flavors) P O P ! Like adding a squeeze or two of fresh lemon or lime juice, or your fave type of vinegar if you don't have any fresh lemon or limes; you really can't go wrong with adding fresh minced garlic, ginger, green onions, cilantro, basil, jalapeƱos, like literally any fresh strong flavor will do the trick and do it salt-free. In those times of desperate need get you a lil pump spray bottle and fill it with Braggs Liquid Aminos or co…
