Black bean beet burger experiment

Anytime a recipe is labeled “best ever” — Beware!  Best according to whom?  Anyway I’ve been on a quest for an at-least-decent bean burger recipe, aside from the one in my book “Feed Your Vegetarian Teen”.  I’ve written about my experiments with white beans, chickpeas and tofu as the basis of meatless burgers.  A friend […]

The veggie burger saga continues

This time I try tofu burgers…. with not much success.

During an event at my college last year, I heard a girl was making some delicious tacos and was using some kind […]

Vegan cookies for the holidays

More adventures with aquafaba. I realize cookies aren’t exactly something a nutrition expert should be celebrating, but I love cookies.  I’d bake them everyday if there was someone else to eat them up.  Lacking that, I wait until December to start baking a revolving repertoire of Christmas cookies.  I’ve got old favorites, but always feel […]
