Black Bean Burgers

Share

These are the best black bean burgers I have ever made. You have to plan ahead because they need to rest for at least an hour before cooking them, but they’re well worth the planning. Many bean burgers have a mushy consistency. Not these. In a bun, they hold up like a hamburger. I like […]

Chickpea of the Sea Sandwich

Share

This is like a vegetarian tuna salad sandwich, and it’s just about as quick to make as tuna salad is. It doesn’t exactly taste like tuna, but it definitely holds together like tuna salad, and it’s nice and tangy because of the vinegar in it. With all of the news about mercury in tuna and […]

This dish was delicious […]

My parents host a huge Easter dinner every year. My mother has four brothers and in turn I have lots of cousins, who have lots of children. Easter is so much fun, complete with an Easter egg hunt for the kids, bunny sack races and other fun games, and an incredible meal. For decades my […]
