Vegan On The Go: Veggie Burgers & Curry Mashed Potatoe

Ok, so I don't always have time to make everything from scratch.  One of our staples at home for when we don't want to cook is bring out the Veggie Burgers.  Served with a side of some type of potato this is a 'fast food' for at home cooking (and tastes great).

Here's one of our recent 'fast food' meals - Vegan Veggie Burgers with a Side of Curried Mashed Potato.

1. Get out the Veggie Burgers - our favorite is Yves Vegan Veggie Burgers - you can find these at Safeway & Superstore.  Look for the Vegan label.  (Family packs at Superstore are a good deal for your dollar).
Look for the Vegan Label
2. Fry up the burgers with some Onion (I throw the onion on half way through).  After flipping once I toss on some Frank's Hot Sauce - yum, you really can put that **** on anything!
That's Frank's Hot Sauce - mmmm

3. Now for what keeps it all together - Bread & Condiments.  Don't got buns?  Don't matter!  Just use bread & toast it up, that's my standard fare.  I fully loaded this baby with Veganaise (Vegan Mayo), Ketchup, Mustard, Tangy Relish (I just discovered this - tastes like dill pickle!), Tomato, Onions, Red Pepper and pickles (that's right, Relish & Pickle).
Relish - Sour not Sweet!

4. Make the mashed potatoes - Boil those potatoes for around 15 minutes until soft - drain - add the ingredients (to your taste) and mash them up with a masher.  Serve on the side with the Veg burger.

  • 3-4 Medium-large potatoes (leave the skins on)
  • 1/2 cup of soy milk
  • a few spoon fulls of Earth Balance Buttery Flavor Spread (or something like that)
  • Shake on some Curry
  • Shake on some Salt
  • Grind on some Pepper
  • Shake on some Curry

5. Voila - Healthy Fast food - dinner in 15-20 minutes!  Never tried veggie burgers?  You really will like these.  They taste even better on the BBQ if you got the time.
