That’s More Like It … Just Very Crumbly

Thank you for all your nice words and congratulations yesterday.  I took the day to catch up at some of those to do’s and also sat around a bit and spent some time in my google reader.  For lunch I had an entire blender of green smoothie :)

Feeling like I was back on the straight and narrow I decided to try my hand a new recipe that I had put on my meal plan this week but never got to.  It was the black bean patties from Clean Food (pg 123).

They did not go so well.

I was suspect about the directions to cook them in a frying pan seeing as I was not sure how the onion was going to cook all the way through and girrrrrrl let me tell you I am not eating no raw onion.  But problem number two was that they totally fell apart.  So I decided to move them onto a baking sheet.

Somehow two patties were actually saved from the batch and looked like patties so I very gingerly scooped those up onto my burger thin buns.  I was preparing for it to be a little dry so I topped mine up with some ketchup and vegannaise.  Brad topped his with bbq sauce and cheese, I guess he didn’t get the memo about them being vegan burgers :P .

Not sure I will make these again.  I’ll need some time to think about it!  I gave up on patties for the rest of the mixture and just threw it all in a pan to cook through and bought some wraps and salsa and avocado for the leftovers.

What was the last new recipe that you tried?  Success or ………. not?

      Ah I’m lucky mine weren’t that bad … But I didn’t have any cereal so maybe that’s why I kept chewing hahaha

  3. You should try Ashley’s veggie burgers (http://edibleperspective.com/2010/07/a-jiffy-twist/) they are DELICIOUS!! I have made them a couple times and my hunnie who is a big meat and potatoes guy loves them!! *I was really surprised*

  4. The last recipe I tried was Mama Pea’s Mmm Sauce. It was amazing. I had to stop myself from drinking it straight out of the blender. :)
