Tonight's Dinner: Veggie Burgers and Fries

It was gorgeous out today, so we decided to fire up the grill. Veggie burgers can get really boring, so here's what we top them with to liven them up a bit:

• Grilled green peppers
• Grilled red onions
(throw those on the grill halfway through cooking the veggie burgers)
• Lettuce
• Sliced tomato
• Sprouts
• Dill relish or sliced pickle
• Any combination of the following condiments: dijon mustard, ketchup, vegenaise, dill dressing (or some other kind of dressing), guacamole

All that on a toasted whole wheat roll with a side of fries (we just used the frozen kind, but if you're feeling fancy baked sweet potato fries would go very well) -- yum. Quick and not boring.

I'd also like to take this moment to give a shout out to Lick's, a local burger chain in southern Ontario. They make the best veggie burgers (or "Nature Burgers," as they call them) I've ever had, and not only are they vegan, they sell them in grocery stores so you can make them at home. If you're in the neighbourhood, definitely give them a try. I also like Boca burgers (the vegan Original kind), but alas, none of the stores around here carry them.
