Mofo Monday: Food I Eat

Mondays are reserved for random food I make and eat. These are a baked seitan burger that I tested for Joni over at Just the Food. I make these a lot but since acquiring a metric tonne of Daiya I decided to use her original suggestion with these and stuff them. The first picture shows the burger mixture being divided into top and bottoms and getting a sprinkle of Daiya in between.

And here is the finished product, covered with the amazing Bar B Cutie sauce and a side of sauteed kale and carrots. Served up on 50/50 burger buns from American Vegan Kitchen. The buns will make a few appearances this month.



A side note for the day: The good man at I-40 Vegan has posted a picture of the scalloped corn and okra casserole I blogged about last week. Get your okra on, my friends. Also, send some of those rolls he made for today. They look fab.

Those daiya stuffed burgers look insanely good. Joni's burger book can't come out soon enough!

I think they are my favorite veggie burger. If I had a grill, they would be excellent for a summer cookout.

i'm kinda sad that i didn't think about stuffed burgers until right now. man, i've been missing out all these years! were it not for your post i'd probably still be walking around dumb to the fact that one can stuff a burger. aaaaaaahahahahaha! (and just last week i figured out the whole "just turn your burrito a little to get even guacamole distribution if you find it to one side" technique. i promise i don't live under a rock - maybe just in a cave.) hooray for more daiya usage, and rock on with the homemade buns. that's one plate 'o awesome, fo 'sho! now i'm off to take a peak at the scalloped corn and okra casserole. w00t!

my mom used to make "inside-out cheeseburgers" when I was a kid.

It is only 10 AM, but I want one of those NOW! Extra pickles please.

Amey said...

holy cow, that is a serious burger situation you've got going on there. Plus, homemade buns! impressive!!

Islaborg said...

That looks awesome, both the patty and the bun! I haven't had a burger in a long time, I need to change that asap.

erica said...

I'm particularly intrigued about these buns. They look very biscuity, which would just be damn genius.

Sarah S. said...

What a new and awesome idea. Must stuff some burgers! Those buns look premium, too.

Now that is a burger, I would LOVE to love. The kale and carrots look so bright and good too.

machopineapple said...

Please to deliver one metric tonne stuffed burger to doorstep.

Candy Beans said...

Okra is one of those things I keep meaning to make. Perhaps I wil do as you say and get my okra on.

vegannifer said...

Those 50/50 buns look so fluffy and delicious! I've yet to see a copy of the American Vegan Kitchen, but I hope to soon just so I can get that bun recipe!

Sarah P said...

I'm still reeling with envy/amazement that these are cheese-stuffed burgers. So awesome!

I LOVE the idea of cheese-stuffed burgers. Best idea of the year. I literally can't wait to try these.

Daiya stuffed burgers sounds awesome. What a good idea! I happen to have some Daiya in the fridge at the moment...hmmm.

Monique a.k.a. Mo said...

That looks amazing! Do you know if the recipe for the burger is on her site?

Seitan Said Dance said...

Oh my. Don't touch that food, I'm on my way!

panda with cookie said...

I don't think the recipe is on her site right now. But there are plans for the book to get published.

Kip said...

Save one for me, I'm getting on a plane immediately.

Claryn said...

Holy craaaaaap, cheese-stuffed seitan? I am way into this (and curious as to how it turns out!).
