veggie burger with [homemade] fries + salad

back in university a friend of mine and i had a bit of a tradition.  after work or a particularly stressful week, we'd meet at a pub in the downtown core and get our pub classic - a (veggie) burger.  this particular pub appealed to us because it allowed you do get half fries + half salad.  it's the perfect meal - you got the greasy fries you want, with a hearty dose of veggies.

since moving into the condo, this is one of the traditions b and i have managed to replicate at home.  with a pint of beer, it's the perfect saturday evening meal, from the comfort of your own home.

veggie burgers with [homemade] fries + salad

[what you need]

veggie burgers - tonight we were looking for a quick meal - these burgers were yves brand veggie burger.  if you are looking to make your own, this lentil burger is amazing and holds up really well on the bbq.  and, of course, regular beef burgers would work just as well.

fries - oven roasted fries (recipe below).

salad - any salad will do.  tonight's version was a simple one with lettuce, spinach, red kale, cucumber, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts and this balsamic apple vinaigrette.

drink - a pint of your favourite beer.

[oven roasted] fries
serves 2

[you will need]

3 or 4 potatoes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of oregano, basil and parsley
2 teaspoons garlic powder

[to make]

preheat the oven to 425 degrees. slice up potatoes.  the thinner you make them, the more crispy they turn out.  toss potatoes in olive oil, herbs and garlic powder.  bake for approximately 25 minutes, until crispy, flipping half way through.

there you have it - a quick, simple to make, pub classic at home.  hope you love it as much as we do.  enjoy!
