chocolate mousse, tofu does not enter our house. I've tried it every way possible and it's somewhat like eating a bowl of soaking wet packing peanuts--except in the said mousse.)
I'm too big a fan of pork products to really be a vegetarian, but I also love our earth and in order to not consume as many animal products, we do try to eat at least one or two vegetarian meals a week.
this recipe on the Eating Well website, I realized it fit the CWYG philosophy perfectly and I had everything on The List. Plus it not only included beans, but quinoa which I love.
Part of what I want my readers to adopt is the reality that recipes are simply ideas. They can always be changed and are flexible so use what you have. I didn't have avocadoes to make the guacamole or any sort of bread product to serve the burgers on but I did have lettuce from my veggie box and I had salsa I had made last week. (Want recipes for easy to make and freezer friendly salsas?) So we simply had the "burgers" alongside a simple salad and topped with cheese, salsa and plain yogurt--which I regularly use in place of sour cream since we always have it.
By the way, you may want to double this recipe--my kids were totally bummed when they realized there were none left after their initial serving. Plus they are great to freeze and use for lunches, too. (Now, I'm wishing I had tripled the recipe...quick lunches...Duh!) Happy Meatless Monday.
