Thought I’d mention the indoor grill i used. It’s non toxic ceramic non stick. And flips from grill to griddle. Bella is the brand name. And we are in love with it. And not just because we share a name šŸ˜‰

Roasted Broccoli: 

1 bag frozen broccoli florets tossed with lemon juice, sea salt, nutritional yeast. 425Ā° for 15 minutes or so. 

Pizza Fries 425Ā° for 30 minutes or so. Then broil on high. To puff them up. pizza fries recipe here


grill to sear and heat through… 

Or bake them. On parchment. 375Ā° for 15 minutes, flip, 10 minutes.

Enjoy as a traditional burger with all the fixin’ or protein style.

I ate the leftover burgers cold and they were so tasty šŸ˜‰ they would also be great crumbled on top of Buddha bowls or salads.
