Instagram & Falafel Veggie Burgers

First of all, before I forget, we are now on Instagram! I have wanted to do that for a very long time and today I did it! We are @ cookswithevie.

I have so many posts to finish! I hope I can get time to post them soon. 

We made these “burgers”, next time I want to try these on pita with tahini and hummus. I wasn’t prepared this time and just used the buns we had. 

This recipe is so easy. 

1/3 cup large flake oats

1cup chickpeas (I used canned, drained)

1cup lentils (I used canned, drained)

3 garlic cloves, minced 

2 green onions, chopped

1 egg

2tsp chili powder 

1tsp oregano

 1/4tsp salt

1/2 English cucumber, finely diced

1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley 

Whirl oats in food processor until ground. Add in chickpeas, garlic, onion, egg, chili powder, oregano and salt. 

Process scraping down sides as needed until smooth. 

Place this mixture in a bowl and stir in lentils, cucumber and parsley. 

Shape into 4 patties.  

Cook patties in a lightly greased pan until golden on each side. 



We served on buns drizzled with tahini. And added whatever each person felt like adding. 

We also served with these baked sweet potato fries with curry lime dip.

 That super simple recipe will follow tomorrow.

Moldavian Potato Salad

This potato salad was given to me by a friend, it has a lot of flavour with feta, dill and so garlicky.  It is different from other potato salads in that there is no mayo.

6 medium sized red potatoes, boiled in salted water until tender.  Once cooled enough to touch cut into chunks.

Cool to room temperature.

Then add 1 cup of crumbled feta, 3tbsp red wine vinegar and 2 tbsp chopped fresh dill and 1/4 cup chopped green onions.  I didn’t have green onions so I didn’t add those.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat.
