When Jacob and I first started dating, a burger salad bowl was one of the meals he would prepare to impress me. He wanted to show off his cooking skills and knowledge of healthy recipes. I’m sure dating a dietitian must be a little nerve-wracking, worrying that I might be assessing every meal he prepares for me.

Dietitians care a lot about the deliciousness of the food (we know all about balance). However, I was thoroughly impressed with Jacob’s salad-making skills. It’s not always easy to prepare a healthy salad that is also delicious!

So, let’s make Jacob’s Signature Black Bean Burger Salad and all my favorite burger toppings. Get the recipe.

Now, a word about these yam burgers: they rock. I usually tend to stray towards the side of chunky bean burgers, full of spice and heft and texture. But when the idea came to me to work with NaturSource’s Tamari almonds in veggie burger form, I immediately thought their crunch and smokiness would pair nicely with a silkier burger. Experimentation led me to a roasted yam burger that is baked instead of fried and laced with fragrant strands of roasted garlic. Wedged in a sourdough bun with curried vegan mayo or tahini sauce and topped with my favorite quick-pickled vegetables and a bit of Sriracha, this roasted garlic and yam burger has truly been the stuff of dreams. Get the recipe.
