Vegetarian: Veggie Burgers with Zucchini

HELLO FRIDAY!! I can not even tell you how many emails I get for vegetarian recipes. And since I started posting the sensational sides, the crowd has spoken....we love going Veg! :) But I thought, we can't be veg heads if all we eat is rice and pasta. Sometimes even vegetarians want a meal with some substance. A meal that can hold a candle to the big guns......a meal like THIS!

Veggie Burgers with Zucchini
Grocery List:
2 large zucchini or 4 small (14 oz), cut diagonally in 1/2-in.-thick slices
Nonstick spray
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 box (10 oz) soy veggie patties
4 hamburger rolls
1/4 cup bottled tomato salsa
1 bag (5 oz) Potpourri potato chips (by Terra) or regular potato chips if you can't find them.

How to make it:
1. Remove broiler pan with rack from oven. Heat broiler.

2. Place zucchini slices in a single layer on broiler rack. Coat both sides with nonstick spray; sprinkle with the salt and pepper.

3. Broil 4 in from heat source 4 to 5 minutes per side until charred and tender. Remove to a plate.

4. Place burgers on rack and broil as package directs (don't overcook or burgers will be tough).

5. Place rolls, cut side up, on rack. Broil briefly to toast.

6. Tob bottom of each roll with a burger, zucchini and salsa. Cover with roll top. Serve with potato chips.
