I love veggie burgers but don’t enjoy the frozen varieties at the grocery store – some have a funny texture or after taste that keeps me from eating them. I also think that these are so easy to make and freeze that buying the other kind aren’t worth it! I usually start with the base of quinoa and black beans and add whatever veggies I have in the fridge. When freezing them I usually cook them and then place them in an air tight container spaced out on parchment paper. You can thaw them before cooking but I go straight from freezer to pan and they turn out great. Enjoy! (more…)
Black Bean and Sweet Potato Quinoa Breakfast Skillet
This is a really scrumptious protein-packed breakfast for two that my husband always looks forward to. The ooey gooey goodness of a runny yolk makes a rich sauce but it’s all good on its own also. It would probably taste even better with a tomato relish, but I haven’t found one I quite like yet.
Black Bean, Kale and Corn Enchiladas with Fresh Corn Salsa
Whenever I make enchiladas I try to make some with shredded chicken so that my husband isn’t forced to eat vegetarian 100% of the time. I like the spicy black beans and pinto beans (yay for protein!) countering the sweet bursts of corn. Leftovers work well for tacos / fajitas. This recipe serves 8-10 people.
