Black Bean Burgers

November 19, 2020

Black Bean Burgers 

Black beans - 1 can, drained and rinsed 

Oats, rolled - 1/2 cup

Flax, ground - 2 tbsp

Cumin - 1 tsp

Chili powder - 1 tsp

Garlic powder - 1 tsp

Salt - 1/2 tsp 

Pepper - 1/2 tsp 

Lemon juice - 1 whole lemon

Avocado oil - 2 tbsp
Burger buns - 2, whole wheat

In a blender, food processor, or mixing bowl (if you’d like it chunkier), combine black beans, oats, flax, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and juice from one lemon.  If using blender/food processor, puree until desired texture is attained.  If using mixing bowl, mash together using fork, potato masher, or hand/stand mixer (for best results).  Form into two patties.  Heat up 1 tbsp avocado oil in non-stick skillet over medium heat.  Add patties and cook 5-7 minutes per side. Add the other tbsp of oil before turning.  Serve on toasted bun with cheese, ketchup, and mustard if desired.  Great with side salad.

Make your own "Cream of Wheat"

August 25, 2020

Did you love cream of wheat as a kid?  I sure did!  
My parents would buy the individual packets and I would cook it up with milk in the micro and then mix in A TON of honey and butter! Yummy

Simply grind up your rolled oats in a blender or food processor (do a bunch at once and store the rest in an airtight container) and then measure out ...
