Super Simple Winter Vege Burgers

food painting for the vegetarian cookbook by Fiona Morgan
Quick. Easy. Satisfying. Fresh.


Food painting artwork

30 x 30cm acrylic on paper. The paper is no ordinary paper, it is textured Hahnemuhle 300 gsm 100% alpha cellulose which is acid-free fibre of vegetable origin.

This is a super slick stencil style painting of charmingly cartoonish burger-mushrooms in a 1950's colour palette. Thanks to the Japanese anime style painter Madoka Kinoshita for inspiring the clean crisp lines and patience required for this piece. She recently did a three part video series of her painting methods which I found fascinating. It left me itching to try this style again. Now after completing this piece, I really know that while I enjoy the results, I really don't enjoy the process. Next time I try a stencil style piece, there will be changes to the method! I found that I am actually quicker and at least as accurate painting freehand rather than using a cut out mask. Who would've thunk?

By the way, all the food painting artwork is available to own in the Official Art Store.


The meatless meals recipe

Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this 'recipe'. It's bloody delicious. And in the middle of winter when you're craving something fresh, yet warming and filling, this really hits the spot. I'm still searching for vege burgers of the pattie variety that can match these ideas.

So it's really easy and involves only 4 ingredients for the entire burger, with two variations.

bread for your burger, whatever style you like
avocado, be generous
then either topped with
haloumi cheese cut into 1/2 - 1 cm thick strips and gently pan fried until golden on both sides
a giant flat mushroom of any variety with the stalk cut off so they lie flat, then slowly pan fried until soft and cooked through

Yes that is it and they are divine. As I said, don't underestimate how delicious these are just because they are so simple.
