Potato Burger & Faux Salmon

One of the things I missed after going vegan was salmon. I’ve never really come across a good recipe for vegan salmon so I decided to create my own. Even though this isn’t exactly like the real thing, it still tastes pretty damn awesome!

I know what you’re thinking. «Oh my god, there are so many ingredients!» Well there is, but many of them are optional and most of them I think are pretty common in a vegan household.

Special thanks to Mary from “Mary’s test Kitchen” for inspiration and guidance. 🙂

For Your Modification:

Marinate the carrots over night for a more flavorful taste.

Add a ts of chili powder or cayenne pepper to the carrot mix for a more spice version.

You can completely mash the potato or grate it depending on what texture you like.

The shorter you keep the keep the carrots in the oven, the crisper they get. The longer, the more soggy.
