Veggie Masala Tacos and This Weeks Eats 8.9.15

I shared this pic on my Instagram a few weeks ago of my new favorite meal.  Well, not the meal, a few of the ingredients.

Trader Joe's was doing a demo on the Vegetable Masala Burgers with a tasty slaw, made from their Tzatziki Sauce and shredded cabbage on pita bread.  It was DELICIOUS.  I had wanted to try the burgers, but until then, I wasn't sure how to prepare them.  I took this slaw idea and ran with it.  We made these tasty tacos at least twice last month and I thought I'd share the recipe!  Unfortunately, I was too hungry to take a pretty picture - you'll just have to take me at my word.

Veggie Masala Tacos


package of Trader Joe's Vegetable Masala Burgers
for slaw:
container of Trader Joe's Tzatziki Sauce
package of Trader Joe's shredded green cabbage
3 green onions, diced
1/4 cup of shredded carrot
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
for spicy relish:
3 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/4 cup red onion, diced
drizzle of olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
warm flour tortillas for serving (or naan)

Cook the burgers according to package directions and cut into quarters.  While the burgers cook, mix the slaw ingredients (Tzatziki through cilantro) and relish ingredients (tomatoes through olive oil).  Place two pieces of the cooked burger on warm tortillas and top with slaw and relish.  Easy peasy!

I have heard that there is a Sambal Matah (Indonesian Salsa) available at Trader Joe's, which would probably be an excellent stand in for the spicy relish - but I haven't found it yet. Wah!

This week is a short list, as I'm headed off to Bird Camp on Friday!
