Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers

Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers // wishfulchef.com
It’s that time of year again to crank out the charcoal! My husband and I are enjoying our new garden space and have been grilling with friends every weekend. My friend Diana and I experimented with different ingredients to put on the grill like Lacinato kale and even Asian dumplings! The dumplings didn’t turn out too well but the kale tasted delicious, I highly recommend it. This new burger recipe was an idea I thought of because we were eating way too much meat. I wanted something light, but still really wanted to eat a burger! It’s great for your vegetarian friends and also an incredibly simple and healthier alternative to a filling meaty burger.

Here is my healthy version made with Greek yogurt which makes them so deliciously creamy. Enjoy!

Chinese Scallion Pancakes with 100% Whole Wheat Flour // wishfulchef.com
Scallion pancakes are one of my favorite Chinese take-out appetizers. Finely chopped scallions layered into dough that’s thinly rolled out then pan-fried into a crisp golden brown perfection…what’s not to like? Two years ago I made my own version but added seasonal ramps. This time I wanted to go the traditional route but with 100% whole wheat flour.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie // wishfulchef.com
Who’s got a craving for something sweet?? This giant chocolate chip cookie is baked in one of my favorite kitchen tools, my cast iron skillet! It’s so versatile, you can cook pretty much anything in it, like German spaetzle or homemade pizza. I love this method because the cast iron helps create a nice outer crust and keeps the inside moist…so DELICIOUS. Dig in!

Quick and Easy Vegetable Lo Mein

Quick and Easy Vegetable Lo Mein // wishfulchef.com
Have you ever tried cooking with clam juice? If you’re not familiar, it’s the liquid strained from freshly shucked clams and has a briny, almost smoky flavor that complements many dishes. This recipe was my first experience and I absolutely loved it! But if you want an all vegetarian meal, leave the clam juice (and oyster sauce) out by substituting vegetable broth.
