I've always wondered about the whole fusion thing they're always going on about on various food network programs. There are no such style restaurants around here. They're all just one cuisine at a time. But I took it upon myself to give some fusion a try in my own kitchen. Mostly just because I love ginger so gosh darn much. I'd pretty much put that stuff in anything at all. I love the smell. I love the taste. I even love the name. My fusion was an admittedly odd confluence. It was cajun/asian/mexi and little bit of kosher. I know. I know. What the? But honest to goodness, it came out tasting great. Yes, I was shocked by this. Some of the best lentils I've ever eaten. And I've eaten a lot of lentils. The very reason I'm writing this post is so I can replicate the dish in the future. I don't want to forget how I did it. Ingredients 1/2 cup dry lentils 1/4 pearl barley 1/4 cup kosher garlic pickle juice 6 cloves minced garlic 1 cup frozen collar

So I heard that Ruby Tuesday had a new veggie burger on their menu. Of course I was interested to sample it. In the past I have not been a fan of their food. Though their salad bar is awesome. It was two veggie patties on a pretzel bun. Topped with pepper jack cheese, spicy chipotle mayo and fried jalapenos. Good stuff. Very good. I would've preferred just plain jalapeno rings over the fried variety. But the spicy mayo was really tasty. And the pretzel bun was good as well. I did not need two patties. I took one off and brought it home to eat the next day. All in all, a stellar effort. Good texture on the patty and great toppings that really made it tasty to eat. Would recommend it for sure. Bonus, if you get the salad bar, you have all those other toppings to add yo your veggie burger. Support the new Ruby Tuesday veggie burger. It deserves a permanent place on their menu.
