day#8 something-something in paradise...
i've eaten some really crazy things on a burger in my day, but it has never crossed my mind even once to eat pineapple on one. i've heard of it on a pizza, but never a burger. this was suggested by jaymoh and the sammich creation shall henceforth be called the "juggamoh".
what's on this beast? well, we have a wheat hamburger bun slathered with veganaise mixed with a little miso. then i placed a lentil cutlet* on top of that with some sauteed mushrooms, grilled pineapple, and caramelized onions. this was a VERY magical sandwich. the photos do not do this superburger any justice. it was too dark outside to take my regular dinner shot for this one, so i had to use my ol' food photography nemesis the flash setting.
to make a lentil cutlet, simply make the chickpea cutlets from veganomicon and sub cooked lentils instead of chickpeas and omit the lemon zest. i think vegan cowgirl mentioned on her blog at one time that the cutlet recipe could easily be changed with the use of a different bean. it makes an awesome crispy patty. much better than a silly boca burger.
