Mushroom, black bean or even Quorn mince burgers are a few examples that you can try. Bear in mind that it does take a lot of prep work to create veggie burgers, but the end results are superb.

 

Be sure you’ve got the right gear in your kitchen before you begin. For a start, you’ll need to do a lot of chopping, so some sharp, good quality knives are essential. Check out http://www.cutitfine.com/kitchen-knife-set-reviews/ for some knife set ideas. You’ll also need a robust and powerful food processor to mix the ingredients.

 

When it comes to the potato wedges, simply peel and chop up some potatoes into wedge shapes. You can either fry them or cook them in an oven. If you’re doing the latter, coat them with some oil and paprika if you wish to make them a bit spicy.

 

Pasta with spinach and pesto

 

Are you in the mood for something Italian? If so, how about a quick and easy yet scrumptious pasta meal? It only needs just a few ingredients:

 

  • Fusilli or Penne Pasta;
  • Walnuts and basil leaves;
  • Garlic;
  • Soft cheese; and
  • Spinach.

150 grams of pasta will serve a couple of people. Simply boil the pasta and while that’s happening, use a food processor to blend everything else except the spinach. Once the pasta is boiled, you can drain the water and then stir in the homemade pesto and spinach. Et voila!
