Leftover Burgers, Fried Okra, Steamed Veggies

Dinner 10/3 by Rachel

• Leftover Burgers

• Fried Okra

• Steamed Veggies

Leftover burgers are a great way to get rid of leftovers that aren't eaten up. Last night, Brian made a big pot of curried split pea soup for the potluck and a lot of it made its way back here for lunch. Even after lunch, there was still a bunch left. Rachel transformed it into patties by adding flour until it was a formable batter and then frying them. They were served with our own mustard, sauerkraut, sour onions (lactic acid fermented onions) and squickles (those great squash pickles I'm going to post about) and some people put them on Tony's whole wheat bread. He uses the no-knead method that's so popular these days to keep us well-stocked in bread.

Our okra is still hanging on despite a light frost which killed most of the leaves. Dredged in flour and spices and fried, it's my favorite way to eat okra. Mostly because it gets rid of most of the sliminess that okra is popular for.

The veggies were a bunch from the fridge that needed to be used up. It was a mix of cabbage, red pepper, celery and a green that I can't readily identify. Kale? I spritzed mine with soy sauce and added ground toasted sesame seeds on top.
