Impossible Jalapeno Burgers

This might be the best meat substitute burger I’ve ever had !

I cooked these in a cast iron skillet and was a little afraid I’d burned them ’cause of how some parts looked but there was no burnt/bitter flavor, just a great crust on the burger ! The recipe calls for vegan chipotle mayo but my town doesn’t offer that so I took 1/2 cup of plain vegan mayonnaise and combined it with close to 2 tablespoons of minced chipotle in adobo sauce. Mommy and me both loved the texture of the toasted potato buns, the crust on the burger patty and bite of the pickled jalapeno slices. I don’t know how much the finely chopped onion, minced garlic, ground cumin or ground coriander mixed into the patty contributed to the deliciousness of the burger but I’m they were in there. The patty mixture was also supposed to have chopped flat-leaf parsley but I forgot to get it when I went grocery shopping. I loved how this turned out too much to try it again with the parsley in fear of it not turning out as good. The smokiness of the chipotle mayo, the spiciness of the pickled jalapenos and the freshness of the tomato slices and shredded lettuce… it makes me salivate just thinking about it ! Another bonus to this, we had some leftover patties that we refrigerated and then microwaved, and the burger tasted just as good as it did fresh out of the skillet !

Fried Chicken Burger

Happy “Fry-day” y’all ! Now the title of the recipe says chicken, but this is actually a fried seitan recipe !

Will this look like chicken if you cut it open? No. Does it remind me of the flavor that actual chicken has? Once again, no. Despite those two things though, I really enjoyed this sandwich ! It has enough thickness to it that it creates a meaty quality to it and I love the crispy fried coating that the seitan had. It was great with just some simple mayo and lettuce, mommy tried hers with the addition of Wickles chips and loved the combo. I also tried having some of the Pepita Lime Cabbage Slaw with the sandwich, and it was SO GOOD together !
