A breakfast/brunch like no other, this Baked Strawberry Oatmeal will make you want to jump up and dance to Ed Sheeran’s new track Bibia Be Ye Ye like there’s no tomorrow! (Yes, his new album’s out – FINALLY – and yes, this baked oatmeal deliciousness is THAT good!) 😀
Let’s be honest. To most meat-a-holics, the idea of eating a veggie burger is something close to eating chalk. I’ve got to admit that I too was victim to such ignorant thoughts. My childhood is filled with memories of mommy’s delicious chicken or beef burgers for breakfast and the seldom visit to McDonald’s to gorge on the Spicy McChicken or to Burger King for the Mushroom Swiss!
That was until I made this vegetarian patty within the comfort of my home and tasted just how wonderful, albeit different, the experience tucked into every bite of a Veggie Burger is! (This was my first attempt at making a patty from scratch. I still can’t believe my first homemade burger was a vegetarian one! 😉 )
You must be wondering, how on earth can a Veggie Burger match up to a succulent meaty one, right? Wrong! Take my word for it, Veggie Burgers are not as bad as they seem in our minds. They are not bad at all. They are actually quite delicious. And I promise you, even if you take a while to warm up to the idea, this Veggie Burger will not disappoint! And for those who love vegetarian delights, I’m sure you’ll will love this! 😀

Here’s how you make this amazing Veggie Burger:
This recipe for this super tasty Veggie Burger has been a long time coming. It was the dish I prepared for my first column in my ‘Masterclass with Winola Peris’ series published monthly in The Woman magazine, Oman.
A great alternative to a chunky, heavy meat burger, this vegetarian burger is healthy, nutritious and filling. But most of all it is appetizing. (I mean, look at these photographs; don’t they make you hungry? If they look so good, just imagine how amazing they must taste? 😛)
The patty is moist and flavourful. Packed with a sweet hint of corn, coarse creaminess from the chickpeas, the hits of spice and nice from the paprika, cumin, coriander, chilli and mango powder and the tang from the lemon, this burger is perfect to sate your craving for a healthy and energy packed, yet scrumptious meal. And burgers are versatile, really; they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner (or even with your evening coffee 😉)!
I’m not saying that once you bite into a Veggie Burger, you’ll never go back to a meaty one. God knows I have! But if you’re looking for something different or a healthy variant to satisfy your regular burger craving (and keep the weight off), this recipe is a must try!
