Deconstructed Quinoa-Potato Burger, Kale Mango Salad, Peas Salsa – A protein-rich burger that is served with delicious kale-mango salad, topped with peppery peas salsa and creamy garlic yogurt sauce. It’s a mouth full of yumminess! You won’t miss the meat when you eat these succulent, restaurant style burgers right in the comfort of your home. It tastes absolutely divine and it’s healthy to boot!
I was in a mood to create something that was different, to combine flavors that I don’t normally eat in restaurants or make when I am working in one. You can say I was in one of my “moods”, as they call it at home.
I am not a methodical, write down the recipe and then make it kind of a person. I am like I explained in my bio, a mad scientist, pulling everything out of the refrigerator and staring at them till partial idea forms in my mind. I form my recipe as I go along. This dish is one such creation of mine.
I love kale and any greens actually. You will always see an assorted number of various varieties spinach stocked in my refrigerator. My husband’s usual question when I come home from the market is, “Did you buy anything other than spinach?” I like munching on them as I am preparing a meal. Yes, I do mean raw!
In the deconstructed Quinoa-Potato burger, the sweetness of the mango offsets slight bitterness of the kale beautifully and the salad is simply dressed to enhance the beauty of the patty. Rounding it off, the peas salsa kicks your taste buds into the stratosphere with its peppery taste and the creamy garlic-yogurt sauce quenches and makes it juicy. The medley of all of them together is a delight to your senses.
- If you make your patties ahead like I do and freeze them, you can make burgers any day of the week.
- I use a stainless steel skillet Cuisinart 722-24C Chef’s Classic Stainless 10-Inch Open Skillet that I can use in the oven and on stovetop saving me time.
