Vegetarian Chorizo Burgers with Grilled Poblano & Cilantro Pesto
My husband’s recent inability to handle eating pork or beef has certainly been a learning experience for both of us - new ingredients to work with, figuring out how to use them, how they differ from meat based counterparts, etc.
Recently, I was in the mood for a chorizo burger. I had some fun ideas, and didn’t want him to feel left out. So... we came up with a vegetarian chorizo burgers recipe for him.
I wasn’t able to actually try these - on account of my own dietary issues - but he was THRILLED with them. He loved the taste and texture, and even preferred it to the real thing. He especially loved all of the contrasts and complimentary flavours / textures in the overall burger.
If you don’t have smoked serrano powder, you can skip it if you would like- it’s good for a little extra kick, but isn’t absolutely necessary!
