How are you? Are you enjoying your Thursday? Wow, one more day until the glorious weekend! I am super excited for the weekend because we are going to head downtown and enjoy all of the Olympic festivities going on!
I did hear we might not be able to bring your own food into some of the events or houses down there, so I better think of some good hiding places for some bars and smoothies
Who loves veggie burgers? I do!!! However, I have been unable to eat them because most of them have soy (Booooo) in them and it doesn’t make me feel good. I get asked this question a lot “what veggies burgers do you eat?” and I ask a lot of my Blog friends “what veggie burgers do you eat?” LOL, so finally I decided to make my own….sans soy!
I have tested these gems for two nights in a row. The first night with Black beans and the second night with chickpeas. They were both fab, but we preferred the chickpeas. I also found the chickpea burgers held together a bit better.
Black Bean Patties served with Broccoli
Chickpea Patties served with salad:
Vegan Veggie Burgers - Gluten Free!
(tweaked from the recipe found on Ohsheglows.com )
1 can chickpeas (or 1 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas 0r any bean you would like)
1 cup oats
2 small peppers (I used 3 small sweet peppers)
1 cup spinach
1/4 cup sunflower seeds (0ptional – you could use flax seeds too!)
spices – I used a dash of sea salt, sprinkle of cayenne, and dill)
Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix into a thick mess Shape into burger patties and bake at 375 for 15 – 20 minutes per side.
These suckers were wonderful, filling and enjoyable!
I used Chard as the greens for my salad last night - wow, who knew raw chard was as yummy as it is. It is really mild tasting, isn’t it? I see many of you ladies out there using this as your salad green and took a hint to try it out! Fabulous!!!
My salad dressing has been the same as shown here. Super easy and extremely tasty
Off to let the dog run around the park with his “orange friend”.
Have a great night!
