The problem with so many veggie burger recipes is the blah, mushy texture. Not these, boyee! Black bean quinoa burgers are high-protein and nutrient-dense. I added minced kale though you can use spinach, but kale gives a more interesting texture. Mashed black beans, chewy quinoa, crunchy almonds and a smidge of cheese (optional!) make sure these […]
This vegan bean burger recipe is very flexible, giving you endless variety. Avoid highly processed, pre-made veggie burgers and make your own! Yay! You can even store them in the freezer! Whee!
Some of you “old timers” may remember this salad from a newsletter sent out a couple of years back, when I was going through a divorce and living with my wonderful mom temporarily. Since my mom goes out a lot more than I do, I got pretty skilled at cooking dinner for myself (granted, that […]
Roasted Asparagus Video (scroll down for recipe) Roasting, if you are unawares, is most likely the best thing you can do to any vegetable. Asparagus takes particularly well to this treatment.

Nothing very specifically terrible (or terribly specific), but you know how sometimes you just are in a shit-mood for a few days because everything is annoying and your job sucks and you’re hot […]
