you may be getting sick of all the coconut-centric recipes around here. somehow, i’m not. i like to think it’s in my dna as a maharashtrian. (along with putting chips on my sandwiches. every time. is this just an indian thing? or an everybody thing?) (shout out to my bff nirms who first opened my eyes to how much better food tastes with a little crunch!)

anyway, these veggie burgers are filling, they’re chock full of vegetables, and unlike many burger recipes, this one doesn’t require a food processor. also- it’s soy and dairy free!

and since my graduation countdown is now at 29 days (!!), operation pantry-clean out is well under way. somehow over the past few months i’ve managed to collect 8 unopened boxes of pasta. (further evidence of my food hoarding problem….) so i figured i should probably start working on that. use 8 boxes of pasta in 29 days? challenge accepted.

I’m not quite sure what’s going to happen with the blog once I start studying for the bar. I’m trying to coax my mom into taking over temporarily. She cooks a lot better than I do, and honestly she’s the brains behind this website anyway!

Annnyway, this recipe is ridiculously easy. And yummy. I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of soy in my diet, so I’m experimenting with different soy-free recipes. I’m also trying not to go overboard on beans as a protein source, because frankly that’s not going to be pretty for anyone…
