  • 1

    vegan spicy Boca chick'n burger

  • ½

    red bell pepper, sliced into strips

  • ½

    small sweet onion, sliced into rings

  • ¼

    cup salsa

  • a few sprinkles of nutritional yeast (optional)

  • fine black pepper

  • 2-3

    Tbsp garlic hummus (pre-made or make your own

  • 1

    skinny bun, toasted

  • garnish: fresh parsley + side of tahini or hummus


. Toss a saute pan on the heat and add a splash of oil. I used EVOO, but any veggie oil will work. Toss in the onions and pepper and black pepper + optional nutritional yeast. Saute for a few minutes until the edges get all caramelized and blackened. Now reduce the heat to low and pour in the salsa. Once you have poured, you can turn the heat back up to high and saute for another minute until the veggies absorb the salsa and the excess moisture cooks off. Move your veggies over to one side of your pan and toss in your veggie protein strips. Heat through. Add another splash of salsa and saute. If you are using an unseasoned ingredient like beans or tofu or tempeh, add in more salsa to flavor. You may want to add a splash more oil too. Salt and pepper and nooch to taste. Toast bread and spread the hummus. Plate the bread and pile those veggies and protein strips on top. Garnish with some freshly chopped parsley and fresh black pepper. Serve with extra hummus, tahini sauce and/or fruit if you'd like.
