Entube Harissa Chili Veggie Burger
With the long-weekend just a few days away, we are preparing for a family getaway at our cottage and these Veggie Burgers will definitely be part of the menu. Whether you are at the cottage, camping or enjoying a family backyard BBQ, they are perfect summer eats. These bean burgers are spiced with one of my favourite flavoured pastes, Entube’s Harissa Chili. It has a subtle spice kick and with a few table spoons, it enhances the flavour with no need for further spicing. My spring/summer Cypriot Slaw is a perfect pairing to serve as a side. Cheers to burgers and the long-weekend! xoxo
