Meat. It tastes good, and I love it. Perhaps a bit ashamedly so, now, mostly for environmental reasons, some animal activism, and a little first-world guilt to make up the balance. Inspired by my sister, the tireless vegan, I’ve jumped on the trendy Meatless Monday bandwagon in an effort to mitigate my carbon footprint. Believe it or not, (and I’ve got a hard time believing it myself!) I’ve actually come to like it! This burger represents the best of my vegetarian/vegan efforts. Quinoa gives the black beans bulk, along with a nutty flavor and pleasing texture. The Chipotle Chili Powder adds smoke and spice, and the Epazote, that enigmatic ingredient- adds that “umami” characteristic that we so take for granted when eating meat. Most of the World Spice team shares my adoration for all things meat and cheese, but the combination of creamy avocado, tangy Vegenaise spread, and crisp, spicy Mama Lil’s peppers had us all vegans for the day. This one is a guaranteed hit, even with the most devoted carnivores.
