Favorite Vegetarian Foods from Trader Joe’s continued...

 

Vegetable Masala Burger. The first five ingredients are potatoes, canola oil, carrots, green beans, and water.

How Does It Taste? This burger has a pleasant Indian flavor with hot spices. It has a slightly oily texture. I suggest serving it with high-fiber bread or bun to increase the fiber count for the meal.

Nutrition Information:1 burger has 120 calories, 2 g protein, 12 g carbohydrate, 8 g fat, 1 gram saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 gram fiber, 360 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 60%. (8% Daily Value for Vitamin A, 15% for Vitamin C)

Canola cooking spray

2 ounces reduced-fat cheese, soy cheese, or other cheese of your choice

Optional: Sauteed green bell pepper strips or caramelized onions (In a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, saute 1 cup thinly sliced green pepper or thinly sliced onion in 1 teaspoon canola or olive oil or canola cooking spray until tender).

Preparation:

  1. Place frozen meatballs in a microwave-safe container; heat on HIGH for about one minute. Cover meatballs with the pizza sauce, cover the container and continue to heat in microwave for 30 seconds more.
  2. Meanwhile, toast sandwich roll halves in the toaster or toaster oven or grill in a nonstick frying pan (after spraying the cut sides of the rolls with canola cooking spray) until nicely brown.
  3. Lay half the meatball marinara mixture on top of each bottom roll half, then sprinkle half the cheese over each meatball mixture. Add sauteed green pepper or onions, if desired. Cover with the top side of the roll and enjoy.
