Burger and Fries {with Curry Ketchup}

Sometimes I just get a hankering for something really comforting.  You know, like a burger and fries.  But not your average fatty beef concoction...I want a gourmet veggie burger situation.  Real life update--some nights I don't feel like cooking from scratch.  I'm a working girl so there are days when some pre-fab options are a lifesaver when I don't feel like chopping/sauteing.

This burger looks and tastes sooo fancy but was such a snap to put together.  Burgers and sandwiches are really a blank canvas.  Have fun!  Get creative and put your own spin on your burger creation.

Here's how this little beauty came together:

*Honey whole wheat bun
*Avocado (I spread it on the bottom bun)  
*Trader Joe's Vegetable Masala burger (any veggie burger would do)
*Roma tomato slices
*Sweet onion slices
*Organic micro greens (Trader Joe's)

Hello gorgeous!
But what burger would be complete without a side of fries?  I'm particularly partial to sweet potato fries. These were a frozen variety (again from Trader Joe's) and I just threw them in the oven for 20 minutes and they were golden brown and crispy.

What do these fries need to kick 'em up a notch?  Curry ketchup, my friends!  Easy peasy.

Curry Ketchup
*Serves 2
*Prep time: 2 minutes
*Kitchen gear required:  Bowl, spoon

1/8 cup ketchup
1/2 tsp. curry powder

Ready, set, go!
1.  Put ketchup in a bowl
2.  Add curry powder
3.  Stir until curry powder is dissolved in the ketchup

Yep, I'd classify that as easy.  This sweet, earthy ketchup takes the fries over the top and makes this burger and fries truly a gourmet treat!  We all need to kick off our shoes and chow down on a healthy burger once in awhile.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to munch on this delightful treat while finishing season 2 of Sherlock. Yes, I am totally obsessed.  But since I've been a die-hard Sir Arthur Conan Doyle fan since I was knee-high to a grasshopper, I'm not terribly surprised.
