Veggie Burgers and Spicy Cajun Fries

When I made these vegetable cutlets last week, I made a big batch of the potato mixture to last me a while. These cutlets make a tasty patty for a burger. So that’s just what I did – made some burgers.

And what good are burgers with no fries along side? Not the greasy kind, but the oven-baked ‘healthy’ kind.

Vegetable Burgers:

You will need:

4 Vegetable cutlets (recipe here)
4 Sesame topped burger buns
1 onion, thinly sliced
3 tbsp Mayonnaise
Cheese singles

Lighlty toast the burger buns. Spread mayo on the buns. Place a vegetable cutlet on the bottom half of the bun. Top with a slice of cheese and onion slices. Place top half of bun and dig in!

You can add your own toppings to jazz it up.

Spicy Cajun Fries:

You will need:

4 Russet potatoes, scrubbed and dried
4 tbsp Olive oil
1 tsp Cumin powder
1 tsp Corriander powder
1 tsp Cayenne (increase to make it more spicy)
½ tsp Paprika
½ tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 400F.

Scrub the potatoes using a small vegetable brush to rid the potatoes of dirt. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with paper towels. If you don't want to leave the skins on, then skip the scrubbing step.Half the potatoes and then cut into 1/3 of an inch wedges. Transfer to a bowl. Add olive oil and the remaining ingredients, toss to coat potatoes.

Spread out evenly onto a baking sheet lined with foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden brown. Flip wedges once halfway through cooking time.

These fries not only taste good but are also more forgiving on the waistline. One more reason to make these instead of old-fashioned greasy fries. :)
