The Menu: A homemade bean burger, served with a sandwich roll, and topped with all of the good fixings—Vegenaise, mustard, ketchup, tomato, lettuce, and sliced jalapeños. Don't forget the salad on the side.
The Goods: These burgers are the Better Bean Burgers from VN columnist Robin Robertson's Vegan On the Cheap, which is one of my favorite cookbooks. The recipe calls for black beans, but I only had kidney, and I also switched the red onion for shallots. Luckily, the results were quite good, and I was so happy to have such great condiments in my fridge to top it off. I've been cooking up a storm this past week, because I am actually recipe testing for Robin's new cookbook. It's my first time running a test kitchen, and I am having a ton of fun. You may just be seeing some of leftovers in the near future, but for now I'll just say happy Friday!
