« Thyme cappuccino with prawns and asparagus | Main | Chicken breasts sous-vide with port-marsala sauce »

May 12, 2004



Johanna, this is a great idea! I'll definitely give it a try it sounds absolutely delicious. Do you have any other vegetable burger "ideas" to share? I'll probably have a few vegetarian friends as guest soon and any new idea is most welcome.


Hi Alberto, if you ask me for more burger recipes, I don't know any off the top of my head. I guess grilled aubergines and peppers with a hummous-style sauce would work as well, but I'd go away from the burger bun there and opt for a nice toasted ciabatta, or, even better, a pitta pocket. But if it's just any vegetarian recipes you're interested in, there's more coming soon, incl. a delicious lasagne. Or for a stylish starter you could try the "Thyme cappuccino" featured yesterday, if you leave out the prawn carcasses for producing the stock, add some porcini while it's cooking, and serve without the prawns, maybe just asparagus or some pan-roasted jerusalem artichokes for the dipping instead. Let me know if you've got a more detailed brief for your vegetarian feast, I'll be glad to help ;-)


i think your blog is brilliant! what a great idea for a quick meal. i'm always looking for ideas to feed my vegetarian boyfriend and this sounds deeeelicious...


Well, we finally found some portobello mushrooms in this part of Italy, so I finally had the occation to try this little number. Very tasty, only variation was using an electric grill instead of the oven, I'm sure grilling the mushrooms on a BBQ would be excellent too, adding that smokey flavor to it. I was skeptical during the preparation of the slits with garlic and rosemary, but pleasantly surprised at how subtle and delicate the flavor was.

Can you possibly start suggesting wine to go with each meal you post?

Ciao ciao,


funny you should say that, i'll pass that one to chris! since we're no sommeliers, only got to complete 1/4 of the training, I am not sure we find the perfect wine every time... but i might start adding it whenever I find an unusually good match! did you find anything for those burgers then, or are you asking because your choice wasn't that successful?


Sorry, we finished a chilled red Italian wine since it's starting to get pretty hot around here. Wasn't bad, but wasn't a deliberate choice either. Another thing, could you put the number of servings for all posts, some have it and some don't... this helps a "part-time" cook like me estimate how much I actually need to use from the written quantities.
