When the HUBS and I were dating, he took me to this place called TRUE FOODS KITCHEN. Its a restaurant that really focuses on clean eating and is incredibly veggie friendly. Although initially I was SUPER skeptical about clean eating, I was pleasantly surprised. The HUBS recommended their "inside out quinoa burger". It basically tastes like tzatziki smothered goodness topped with fresh veggies. I became addicted. Literally anytime I was in town visiting, we had to go to TRUE FOODS. Eventually I got smart and tried recreating this delicious dish. Enjoy!
