Vegetarian Burgers Blog Hop Wednesday 30th November 2011

This is my entry for Blog Hop Wednesday started by Radhika of Tickling Palates. Its a beautiful concept where not only do you get to make new  blogger friends, cook from their blogs but in return they visit your blog and try out your recipes too.

If you are interested in  joining Blog Hop Wednesday here is how it works:

"The plot behind this attempt is to form groups and make pairs with a blogger who will be your partner for that particular week. This happens every alternate Wednesdays. You will then go through your partner’s blog, select, choose, cook, click and post the recipe in your blog on Wednesday and vice versa. The alternate week you will have a new partner. This way not only you tend to your blog at intervals but also learn some new recipes along the way and get to know a lot of bloggers and make friends."

This recipe is  from Kavis blog Edible entertainment. I have previously cooked from Kavis blog for blog hop , this time I  selected the vegetarian hotdog recipe as it sounded delicious and tasty. I followed the recipe as per  instruction , only changes I made were that I added canneloni beans as well as kidney beans and shaped the mixture into burgers rather than sausages. as in Kavis recipe.The original recipe can be found here.

Delicious vegeburgers , served on a bed of lettuce and garnished with tomatoes, cucumbers and sweet red onions..
