I had a bit of a harder time with Oh She Glows. There was plenty of stuff that looked good, but I just didn’t have what I needed to make it and not a ton of money to get ingredients that are currently luxury items for us. A lot of the ones I thought looked appealing called for maple syrup, and I had just a teeny bit of that left. (I have since been told that mixing a little brown sugar with water will do in a pinch.)
So, anyway. There ended up being only three recipes that I could easily do, and out of those three there were two that were truly awesome.
The dressing was good, but the tofu lackluster and soggy, even after pressing it for longer than she recommended. Cooking it in the skillet just didn’t work for me. I think were I to make it again I’d bake the tofu and stir the dressing in.
I have tried a multitude of veggie burgers and while many of them are good, they are seldom if ever great; even the ones I make on a regular basis are just good, not WOW. These had everything one could want in a veggie burger. They had a great texture, a great flavour, they were the perfect size (I got 8 burgers that were neither too large nor too small for buns) and best of all they STAYED TOGETHER. I will definitely make these again; I’m curious to try other nuts besides almonds just to see what the flavour is like. I’ll no doubt experiment with different seasonings and beans in the future for variety, but I will most definitely make these again and am so thrilled to have such a good base to start from now.
Okay, these were amazing and definitely worth using the last bit of my maple syrup in. They were a tad labour intensive in comparison to a typical muffin recipe, since the “apple pie filling” needs to be cooked a bit before mixing it into the batter, but even so. As I said, worth it.
