Mushroom BBQ Sandwich with a Broccoli Slaw

Veggie burgers and veggie sandwiches at restaurants are either hits or misses. Burgers that involve black beans are usually good.

Vegetable Fajitas

One of my favorite places to eat is a restaurant named Jose Tejas near me. I tell everyone I can about it.

Pre-sliced bread? already a thing.

But this is actually the first recipe I created ever (after an over steamed cauliflower incident)- and I have yet to see anything like it. This replaces the kraft mac and cheese and dinosaur shaped chicken nugget dinners of my childhood.

My friends call me a bunny because I can actually just rip off a leaf from a head of lettuce and eat it without anything else.
