Dinner Time!

January 16, 2010

Besides eating out, I am not really a dinner person.
When I’m at home I am perfectly all right with having cereal or waffles for dinner, as breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.
but some days I just know I’m not getting the protein I need and I know I should try to have a “normal” dinner like “normal” people.

So I made Veggie Burgers!
I used a recipe loosely based off of the ones in Cooking Know How (a truly kick-butt book!). I’ve made them from scratch once before and was surprised how easy it was and how much better I liked it than the frozen hockey pucks you get at the store!
When it came to a side I instantly thought – french fries! I’ve been itching to make from from scratch for a while so I went ahead and used EatMakeRead‘s recipe for Garlicky Baked Fries. They definitely had a kick to them! Super garlicky and spicy and oh-so delicious!

Good ol’ Veggie Burgers

1/2 onion diced
1 Tbsp Vegetable oil
1 15oz can of red kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
1 cp of rolled oats
1 large egg
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp salt
ground black pepper

Cook onions in oil until soft and translucent. Add onions and all other ingredients into food processor (or blender, like me!) and process until all ingredients come together to form a pastey-like consistency. Form into patties (I just use large spoons and spoon it out onto parchment paper and freeze them). Cook in skillet on medium heat untill browned on both sides. Enjoy!
