Bean Burgers and Herbed Scalloped Potatoes

Bean Burger
14 oz can of kidney beans (I rinse them)
4 tablespoons of flour (stone ground whole wheat)
1 tablespoon whole wheat bread crumbs
Non-measured amounts of: onion powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder

Mash with fork. Form into 4 patties. Place on plate and let them hang out in the fridge for about 10 minutes. Heat some oil over medium heat in a pan. Once oil is hot (the “splash water at it” test is good for this) place all patties in and cook for a while. Flip. Cook some more. I hardly ever (read: never) get around to having a bun for these things.

And with that, my apprehensiveness surrounding nutritional yeast is gone. It does smell kinda weird just in the jar…. so I don’t think I’m going to be sprinkling it on pasta as a substitute for parmesan anytime soon.

These scalloped potatoes were very good. Even Tim liked them. And no lactose BS so no stomach tyranny so far. I attempted to use mental math to halve the Veganomicon recipe and when I took it out of the oven at the 35 minute mark I just need to add a bit more nutritional yeast since the soymilk/olive oil/veg broth combo had consumed some of it. The extra 15 minutes of non-foil baking at the end made some of them nice and crispy…. maybe I could even try out the broiler? I’ve never actually attempted to use it before >_<

Oh well, that’s for next time šŸ™‚

    Your bean burgers look delicious and so simple to make. I’m enjoying reading your posts. Did you get a kindle? I didn’t think I would like one but received it as a gift and it is awesome. Really helps with de-cluttering my nightstand.

    Thank you! They’re really versatile too depending on what kinds of spices will go with the rest of your meal. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get the Kindle last night šŸ˜¦ We have a $75 Best Buy coupon and the store near us was all sold out. Husband will check at the store near his work today so hopefully today will be the day!
