Turns out we're not the only ones enjoying harissa. A quick blog search turned up a number of posts about this delightful chile-heavy condiment.
- Foodie at Fifteen (now 16) is eating it for breakfast, among other things
- Kevin over at Closet Cooking is roasting squash with harissa (yum!)
- Holler from Tinned Tomatoes made some delicious looking Spicy Harissa Coleslaw AND
- Barry at The Family Cook Book is making lamb stew with harissa and chickpeas
These were some of the best veggie burgers we've ever tried. In addition to being tasty, they were quite attractive, held together very well (particularly as bean burgers go), and were a cinch to throw together.
We liked the idea of serving the burgers on whole grain buns with goat cheese and avocado, but we decided to kick things up a notch by mixing together a bit of leftover harissa with the goat cheese to make a spread. OH YUM... what a discovery. Can't wait to serve this delicious spread on crackers at our next get together.
The burgers were pleasantly spicy with good texture. They held up to the whole grain buns well, and a slice or two of avocado was the perfect condiment. Absolutely lovely (and healthy) when served with a side of Blasted Broccoli. This is a vegetarian burger that even a carnivore would love.
Next time, we'll have to try out the 5 minute buns...
