Shrimp & White Bean Cilantro Burgers

Posted on

I have come up with a great idea to making dinners faster during the week. Of course, I’m not the first person to think of this but it was the first time I had done it and boy does it cut down on your dinner prep time. What I did was prep the grains and the beans needed for this recipe (and some extra to freeze for later use) the night before.

I cooked the wild rice & quinoa, some for the recipe and some extra for later use, then placed it in the freezer until it was needed. I also simmered the dried beans for an hour until they were softened and did the same thing, placing them in the freezer until I needed them. I’m sure putting them in the refrigerator would work just as well! Then, all I had to do for this dinner was throw it all together and bake for 10 minutes! Perfect!

Cashew & Lentil Curried Burgers

Anyone into veggie burgers? Do you like coming up with new veggie burger creations? I get so excited when I made a veggie burger that stays together, tastes yummy, and has the right consistency and texture when eating. Those three things are the most important to me when making vegetable burgers. When I made these cashew curried burgers, I could tell they would be a hit as soon as I starting forming them into patties. There was something about the texture of them, at that point, that I knew success was in my future for veggie-burger-makingRead the rest of this entry

Corn & Black Bean Burgers

Posted on

Yay! It’s Friday and I’m sure everyone has worked hard to get to this day. I know I sure have. Last night I did a long workout on the treadmill, which was dreadful while I was running it, but afterwards I felt like a champ. I talked about getting through workouts on the treadmill before and I used some of these tips yesterday. What are your ways of crushing a workout on the treadmill? Anyway, I also made these corn & black bean burgers, which are so easy to make and delicious. They are meant to be vegan, but I feel like an egg white would help to hold them together so that’s what I did. You could do a flax egg and then they truly would be vegan. Read on for the recipe…
