Dinner - vege burgers and pizza

The mint plant in the garden which was planted a week ago is still alive! It's so pretty and green! I'm not really an outdoor-sy person but plants and flowers always seem to amuse and excite me. There's lavender in the same pot too. Will make some cookies with lavender sometime.

Today's dinner was absolutely yummy. Sweet potato, chickpeas and cumin burger with yogurt sauce and pizza with chorizo and zucchini. The vege burger's recipe was made up as I went along - a bit of this and that so excuse the measurements. The yogurt sauce is delicious and I ended up dipping everything in the yogurt, even the pizza. I also made a simple salad of mushrooms, tomatoes, cucumber and sun dried tomatoes drizzled with oil from the sun dried tomatoes and balsamic vinegar.

The pizza was made by my housemate with 2 types of cheese, chorizo and zucchini. Will post the recipe some other time. Yogurt sauce

500g greek yogurt
1/2 a cucumber
bunch of parsley
lemon zest
squeeze of lemon juice
salt and black pepper to taste (I used about a teaspoon of salt and quite a fair bit of black pepper)

Basically just chop the parsley, slice the cucumber thinly and mix everything together.
