I love to cook.
I love to try new things.
I have been storing up my food magazines waiting to be back to normal.
Because of having such a high protein intake for so long from meat I wanted to find other ways to get in my protein...
Tonight's menu included
Clean veggie burgers from cooking light August 2015 magazine...
A whole of natural items and no meat woo hoo. I have decided to try out some meatless meals for my entire family to enjoy.
Tonight was a big hit...
I layered it with an avocado/salsa verde topping, Ezekiel bread, red onion and pickles. Yum yum - the hubs and kiddos added cheese.
1 can of black beans - I get no or low sodium
Shallots/red onion 1/2
Uncooked quinoa 1/3 cup
Mushrooms 4oz I used can
Cilantro I used dried 1 tsp
Cumin 1 tsp
Salt 1 tsp
Chile powder 1/4 tsp
1 large egg
Put 1/2 can of black beans in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Put in food processor - other 1/2 of beans, all seasonings, chilies, egg and 1/2 of the quinoa uncooked, mushrooms
In a sauce pen sauté the other 1/2 of the quinoa and shallots. Then add to the food processor.
Once all of the food is processed put in a bowl and add the 1/2 can of beans from oven in it.
Divide into 4 patties and put into a pan with olive oil leave for 10 minutes first side and 5 on the other.
