I would love show you the process of how I made the best bean burger topping ever using ingredients found mostly in my garden but…I managed to drop my phone into a bowl of water. Now my phone is having a nice dry in some sweet rice.
But just in case you were interested in making this awesome burger topping (or potential side dish), here are the ingredients:
[Makes enough for two, maybe three burgers.]
- 6-8 chard leaves; stems chopped into 1/2″ pieces and leaves cut into thin-ish horizontal strips
- 2 cloves of garlic; smashed and roughly chopped
- 2 tsp of dill; chopped
- 2 leaves of basil; chopped
- The leaves of a thin sprig of thyme
- 1 young red onion or 1/4 of a mature red onion
- 1/2 tblsp of butter
- 1 tblsp of water (optional)
- A dash of paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
1. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
2. Add the garlic and chopped red onion into the pan. Saute until garlic is fragrant and the onions are translucent. Be careful not to brown the garlic too much while the onions are working their magic. Add water and reduce the heat.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients into the sauce pan and saute until the chard leaves have wilted and the stems are soft.
4. Put on top of a cooked bean burger (or any burger of your choice) along with a slice of swiss cheese, classic hummus and a small dollop of sour cream.
