Tonight’s dinner was Spicoli Burgers. These have hemp seed nuts in them, thus the name (from Fast Times at Ridgemont High). The recipe is in Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan by Dreena Burton. The fries, from the same cookbook, are called Popcorn Fries. They are cooked in coconut oil and tumeric and have nutritional yeast added at the end for a cheesy flavor. These recipes are definite keepers.
These burgers are really yummy. They hold together very nicely, but will probably not work on a grill. They do squish out the bun as they are eaten, but neither of us minded at all. Very tasty. They remind me of arancini balls and were equally tasty outside the bun. I’m half tempted to take the recipe and add some nutritional yeast and some other things and make them into arancini balls.
The fries kicked booty. OMG.
