vegan bean burgers

Aren’t Friday nights at home the best?!  I just love them.  Time to relax after a looooong week.

For my Friday night meal, I whipped up some Black Bean Burgers.

The recipe is taken straight from Emily’s blog – your can find it here.  She and her husband came up with such a great recipe that there is no need to change up anything!  It is seriously the perfect veggie burger recipe.

Mix up your ingredients in a food processor.  Fold in some extra beans for more texture.  Then, bake for about 40 minutes, turning once.

While I was waiting for the veggie burgers to cook, I snacked on my favorite snack – two second guacamole!

Cut an avocado in half, mash up one-side with a spoon, enjoy with chips!

After 40 minutes in the oven, I put 5 of the burgers in the fridge for later and popped my burger on the grill pan to get some crispiness.

I ate my burger on an sprouted wheat bun with ketchup.

With a salad.  I made up a dressing of 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp dijon mustard, 1 tsp lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Topped with goat cheese.

It was a great simple Friday night meal!

Do you know what else is great on a hot summer night?!

Ice Cream!!

Well, something like ice cream…Blueberry Coconut Banana Softserve!

You can make so many variations of this softserve.  Just use frozen bananas as your base and add any frozen fruit that you want.  In some versions, like cherry, you cannot even taste the bananas!!

This version included:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste

Topped with blueberries, coconut and cacao nibs.

Blueberries and coconut are really great combination and I love the shreds of coconut througout the softserve.  Delicious!

  3. My goal here is to clarify and simplify things as
    much as I can. It keeps an individual feeling full and stops food cravings.
    Maybe you’ll binge eat or lie to yourself about your eating habits.
