Burgers and Fries

My birthday was few months ago. Instead of having a party I went to a restaurant with Nomad and my sister. I had a portobello burger with sweet potato fries. It was the best burger I’ve ever had, and I wanted to try to make something similar at home. The result was the best burger I’ve ever made, even if the one at the restaurant was better. The burger on the picture isn’t so pretty, but it did taste great.


Portobello Burger

1 burger bun (I used homemade carrot bun)
1 roasted portobello cap
tomato slices
onion rings
pickle slices
mustard, ketchup

Put everything inside the bun.

Root Vegetable Fries with Garlic and Chili Dip

2 l root vegetables (potato wedges, carrot sticks, rutabaga sticks)
3 tblsp oil
1 tsp smoked paprika
0,5 tsp black pepper
little bit of cayenne

Put the root vegetables to a bowl and add oil and spices. Mix with your hands until all the roots are covered with spicy oil. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the root vegetables on it. Bake in 225 Celsius degrees for 20 minutes or until they are soft inside and crispy outside (try with a fork). Turn the roots once or twice during the baking. Baking time depends on thickness or your root vegetables. Serve with burger and dip.

Garlic and Chili Dip

2 dl plain soy yogurt
1 tsp mustard
pinch of salt
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp minced garlic
half of a fresh lemon drop chili minced*
few drops of Chipotle Tabasco

Mix everything and let sit in the fridge 20 minutes or longer before serving.
*You can use other fresh or dried chili and/or increase the amount of it if you want hotter dip. Half a lemon drop makes a mild dip.

    Yes, I shredded 3 big carrots and added them to the dough. I also used some sunflower seeds and rye flour.
