Burgers, BBQ + Measurements (not mine! dirty!)



Butternut, Red Bean + Quinoa Burger w. Chipotle Aioli


This is a version of my most favorite veggie burger recipe of mine. I was out of a few things so I had to do with what I had. This is usually made with millet and has leeks and peppers in it as well. The original inspiration for this burger was from one of the weekly specials at my last job. I was craving it one day when I wasn't working and set out to make my own version since I wouldn't ask for the recipe. It's more fun experimenting I think. It's changed here and there over the past 2 years but I'm really happy with it and am going to set out getting proper ingredient measurements, since you can't write recipes without measurements! I'm really trying to get better at writing things down especially since I'm aiming for self publishing a book or zine at the end of the year.




Reno (basically 10 months)


With the craziness that is Reno I'm finding it hard to do, but it will happen. She is standing now, attacking the cats (one of them decided to attack her back yesterday.) I thought it was a good experience for her but she went right back to it this morning. She's eating big girl foods now (including the above veggie burger without the aioli, and avocado sandwiches.) It's all so crazy. Oh yeah and some of her babbles are curse words. At least they aren't ones that we say so we can be assured she is just babbling and not calling us horrible names or vodka.

More food...



Maple-Hoisen Grilled Seitan and Brooklyn Deli Macaroni Salad

I'm pretty sure I haven't posted about this before. I think it was one of my forgotten meals. If you've seen it already well then you get the pleasure of seeing it again.

We went to a friends house to see a friend who was visiting and had a BBQ. I brought along the V'Con macaroni salad above. Which I need to say now if you haven't made this yet you must make it now. I love it. I've always loved macaroni salads but never "deli" ones. I love this "deli" one -the peas! You will never see the peas.

Since I was the only non meat eater there I also marinated some Seitan in my Maple-Hoisin Marinade. This is a recipe that I'm actually writing the measurements down for and I am almost satisfied with it. One more go at it and I will post it.

p.s. I have a very exciting post planned for tomorrow. It's a newer version of something people got really excited about a month or so ago. I'm really excited about sharing it.

Yum to both the burger and the seitan. And Reno is so beautiful! Can't wait to see what it is that you reveal tomorrow...

Catherine said...

What a little snarky-pants you have on your hands! Funny how it will take kids forEVER to learn something . . . like duh, don't tease the cat! The cats will learn to stay out of her way pretty fast, I bet! :)

Yeah.. writing down measurements is sure tedious!... but it becomes second nature after a while.. my problem is that I can NEVER leave well enough alone.. oy.

jessy said...

that is too funny about ms. Reno! :) she's adorable - and sounds like she's on the move and stirring up a little trouble!

the burger looks amazing! i wish i had that for lunch today instead of hummus.

Oh haha I didn't get the post title until I read Veggiegirl's comment. I'm a little slow today.

I keep passing over the deli mac salad in favor of more complicated pasta salads, but I've seen so many good reviews that I think I'll have to try it soon. There will be extra peas in mine to make up for your lack.

Reno is adorable! More Reno stories, please.

Reno is sooo big now! Love the food pics and it great to see Reno growing. She is just a little older than my youngest so it fun to see another little vegan girl growing up and eating all the great vegan food. :-)
