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,

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

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).

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
