Every day, I’m loving Julie Hasson’s Vegan Diner more and more. For dinner Monday night I made the quinoa burgers and old-fashioned hamburger buns.

The hamburger buns were much easier than I thought they’d be, and easy enough that in the future I won’t have to search out vegan buns in the grocery store – I’ll just make them. Next time I think I’m going to throw in some whole wheat flour.

The chickpea burgers were slightly reminiscent of falafel (probably the chickpeas and chickpea flour), but that’s never a bad thing. They were thick and hearty and almost too big to put in your mouth. I topped them with Smoky Mountain Cheeze (see yesterday’s post), ketchup, mustard, greens, and pickle relish. Very tasty.
