It’s burger time! Warm weather always brings out the burger-lovers in all of us. Am I right?  

What if I told you the next time you have a craving for a burger, to try a veggie version instead?  You may think I’m crazy, but trust me on this one.  Vegetarian recipes don’t need to be bland or boring. This flavor packed veggie burger is killer!

In addition to black beans, there are bursts of grilled sweet corn and fresh poblano peppers in each bite. Topping it with Green Mountain Gringo® Salsa is just another reason why this recipe is my favorite.

How to cook Spicy Spring Veggie Burgers?

You can easily cook these in the oven or a skillet. But, if you prefer to use a grill, I would recommend using a double sided grill basket. It will make it much easier to flip the burgers, without the chance of loosing anything through the grates.

**Note these burgers will not shrink, like meat burgers.  Make sure you form them to the size and thickness you would like them to be.

Simple Ingredients:

  • Green Mountain Gringo® Medium Salsa– Green Mountain Gringo® is my salsa of choice any time of year, but especially when the weather starts to warm up and we all start to enjoy the outdoors. They have plenty of flavor options that perfect for any “socially distanced” activity with friends and family.
  • Black Beans–  I used canned beans for this recipe.  I’m all about simple, simple, simple. 
  • Poblano Peppers– The spice of these peppers will vary.  You may get a tame or super spicy one.  If you take a sample and find it is spicy, use only half if you want.
  • Fresh corn–  There is nothing better than fresh corn!  I grilled mine to add a little extra flavor to the burgers.  
  • Green onions–  The more fresh ingredients the better, right?  Chopped green onions are the perfect addition!
  • Eggs–  These will act as a binder for your burgers.  If you would prefer to have a vegan option, you can make flax eggs to replace the regular eggs.  1 tablespoons ground flax seed meal + 3 tablespoons water. Stir until well combined and let sit for about 10 minutes to set up.
  • Breadcrumbs–  I used gluten free breadcrumbs, but feel free to use regular breadcrumbs or even panko breadcrumbs. 
  • Seasonings–  Cumin and garlic salt take this burger to the next level.  If you want to add more spice, feel free to add a dash or two of red pepper flakes.
  • Buns– Choose your favorite burger bun, gluten free or not.  **Or go bun-less all together.
  • Optional additions– Lettuce, tomato & onions.  You can never have too many fresh vegetables!

Can you store Spicy Olive Oil Bread Dip?

Because this recipe is so simple to make, I usually make a new batch every time I’m craving it. But, if you prefer to make a large batch and save it for the next few days, go for it!

If you do not add the cheese, you can store it in an airtight container in your pantry or kitchen counter for up to a week. If you mix in the cheese, I would store it in your refrigerator. But make sure to let the oil come to room temperature before you attempt to dip.

This restaurant-quality blackened fish sandwich is oh-so easy. It may be deceiving at first glance, but rest assured, you can whip up this up in no time!

WHY COD?

I prefer to use cod in this recipe for a slew of reasons:

  • Cod tends to be a meatier fish, making it perfect for sandwiches.
  • It has a flaky, white flesh.
  • A mild flavor.
  • Although lower in omega-3s than fatty fish, cod can still be part of a healthy diet

Seriously y’all, this is so simple and so tasty! And did I mention, much healthier than the typical “fried” fish sandwich?

WHAT SEASONINGS DO I NEED?

The blackening seasoning for this recipe is made of 3 simple ingredients.

  • 1 Tbsp Season All
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika

It’s gives the perfect amount of kick to your fish sandwich!
