chickpea veggie burger

anonymous asked:

Hi Jackson! I'm thinking I'd like to become vegetarian and so far I've been using that label quite loosely because I'm finding that I just don't know heaps of vegetarian recipes. So I was wondering if you had any favorites you could share? Xox

YES go for it :) it’s such a healthy lifestyle!! 
Googling recipes is my go to haha a lot of the time for snacks and stuff I make buddha bowls, which is just rice and then a tonne of veggies either roasted in the oven or chopped up and thrown into a frying pan… that’s always a good snack :) 
But yeah google whatever you want to cook like vegetarian curry or vegetarian burger or vegetarian pasta and go from there :) 
Some of my favourite recipes at the moment are:

https://www.sophgordon.com/single-post/2016/12/12/The-Winter-Abundance-Bowl (sops’s website looks SO delicious! but a lot of ingredients haha)

Also I don’t always buy ALL the ingredients sometimes cause that can sometimes be quite expensive so i just skip a few!! the burgers are the best though, and then just grab buns, lettuce, tomato, onion and then make sweet potato fries!!! BEST fun dinner to make with friends too or get the family involved and its vegan not veggie ;) even better haha
