I have veganized a cookout meal for you that is easy and super delicious. Vegan pasta salad, coleslaw, and even learn how to make your own veggie bean burger! Enjoy your veg-friendly cookout!
Pea Lover’s Pasta Salad
Mash beans. Place onions, garlic, almonds in food processor. Add to mashed beans. Mash cooked brown rice and add to mixture. Season with seasonings and mix in breadcrumbs. Divide and form into 5 regular sized patties (or 10 minis). You can form and press patties between parchment paper until ready to use (i.e. if you make this early in the day, to prepare for dinner). *Dirty Vegan Tip: I used If You Care silicone coated parchment baking paper to form my patties in, and keep in fridge until I was ready to use them. I like If You Care because they are compostable and biodegradable, chlorine free and unbleached, the silicone is naturally derived from rocks and sand, and their packaging is recycled and recyclable. You can find this parchment paper in Whole Foods down the baking isle.* Grill patties for about 5 minutes or so on each side (depending on how you prefer them to be cooked), flipping several times. Alternatively, you can bake, saute, pan fry, or steam these. Serve in a bun or between two pieces of toasty bread, with your favorite condiments. Enjoy!
