Day 19 – Started this beautiful day with a most tasty smoothie… Peanut butter, chocolate, banana !! Dessert for breakfast.. Mmmmmm!!! I made it so thick that I wasn’t hungry for 4 hours… and then just snacked on nuts, seeds and dried peas. Have I mention that before?? Dry roasted peas sold in bulk at Sprouts, mixed in a bag with sunflower seeds and raw almonds.. Perfect snack !!
Home by 4:30pm.. and wondering what the heck to make for dinner tonight… Ahhhhhh!!! I’m out of ideas. Then I remembered a friend posting to my Facebook page a Zucchini Chickpea Burger recipe; I’m gonna give it a whorl… I’ll prep it, fed and walk the dogs, and eat by 630 pm. NOPE !! It took me over 3 hours to make this AMAZING burger. I would give it 5 stars, if I could have figured out how to make it not stick to the pan. I tried 3 different pans. Finally ate it as a dip with gluten free quinoa chips (another Trader Joe’s secret ). Very very very tasty… but when it sticks.. it turns to mush. Next time I will add some broccoli slaw to bind it up. Here’s the recipe: zucchini chickpea vegan burgers.
The reason it tastes so good, is because it has so many dimensions of flavor; so many spices, seeds for texture, and fresh veggies… not to mention the TLC and time. I made 8 of them, so I have 7 more tries to figure a ‘non-stick’ secret. I individually wrapped them in wax paper and put in the freezer for save keeping.
