Adapted from www.egglesscooking.com

Ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 cup blueberries (used fresh)

4 tbsp cold butter, cut into small chunks

1/2 to 3/4 cup cream, little more little less (used half and half)

Directions:

  1. In bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Using two knives, cut butter into flour mixture creating coarse crumbs.
  3. Slowly add cream into flour mixture to create a sticky dough. Don’t make too wet or it will be hard to work the dough.
  4. Once right consistency is created, flour surface and flatten dough into circle (just like pizza).
  5. Cut scones into triangles (just like pizza pie again).
  6.  Grease cookie sheet, baked 15 minutes at 400F or until golden brown.
  7. May drizzle with powdered sugar frosting if you desire!

Have you made veggie burgers before? Getting the consistency of them is quite difficult. At least for me it has been! I have made burgers with chic peas and they were good, but these burgers last night were REAL good. Here’s how to make them:

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1  small yellow squash (or zucchini)
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled
  • 1 cup pinto beans, divided in 1/2
  •  1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • 4 to 5 Tbsp flour
  • pinch of cumin, salt, pepper, parsley

Directions:

  1. In food processor, blend squash, onion, 1/2 cup pinto beans and carrots (ingredients should still be choppy, takes  few seconds)
  2. In another bowl, mix flour and spices.
  3. Add squash mixture to flour, folding together.
  4. Combine egg and cheese with mixture.
  5. Finally fold in remaining 1/2 cup pinto beans.
  6. Grease skillet well with olive oil and turn on medium heat.
  7. Drop large spoonfuls of batter on to hot skillet.
  8. Flip after 3 to 5 minutes.
  9. ENJOY over a bed of lettuce!
