Well, this post won't provide an exact recipe for dinner last night, but it'll give you an idea to run with on your own. Last night Buppy and I had pizza Boca burgers, steamed broccoli and green salad.
The green salad? Lettuce, tomato and cucumber since that happened to be what we had on hand. I love mushrooms, but alas, we were out. Still good though --- I love green salads.
The steamed broccoli? I steamed about half pound [maybe a pound? I'm horrible at guessing things like this!] in our steamer after shaking on some garlic & herb Mrs. Dash. I wanted the seasonings to rehydrate fully while steaming and, while they did, I still would have liked more flavor somehow. Maybe next time I'll toss the broccoli in a little olive oil first; "they" say that helps us absorb more of vegetables abundant nutrients you know? Who? You know, "people." "People say. . . ." Actually, I just read it in an issue of Cooking Light.
The main attraction was our pizza Boca burgers. I picked up several varieties of these when they were 50% off at the grocery store a few weeks [months?] ago and we decided to use the tomato bruschetta ones. They sounded the most Italian-ish. Buppy grilled 'em up, and I sauted some onions and garlic in some olive oil. I then added in some Ragu spaghetti sauce and heated through. We tossed the burgers in the sauce when they were "done" --- really, how "done" does a veggie burger get? --- and then topped with a light sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. These babies got loaded onto toasted buns and turned out pretty good. Neither of us missed the meat, although Buppy had a hard time grilling the burgers. He didn't wanna burn them, but also didn't want them to be mushy. I'd say he did a fine job on them, but I know it was difficult to know when to pull them. Next time maybe we'll try to pan fry them and see if that's any easier. All in all, a pretty tasty, meatless meal. And it wasn't even for Lent!
