Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Rating: Unrated
These vegetarian burgers are delicious! Your carnivorous friends will be impressed. My favorite way to serve is on a whole-wheat bun with garlic-lemon mayonnaise, fresh raw spinach, sliced tomato, and caramelized onions!

Very flavorful alternative to black beans and rice. Quinoa is a nutty grain from South America.

Double Crust Bean Pie

Black beans, cheese, bell peppers, onion and spices baked between 2 pie crusts.

Mujaddara Arabic Lentil Rice

Rating: Unrated
Enjoy a great tasting dish to share with family and friends. Special dish for vegetarians, and one of our favorite meals. Instead of placing the onion on top you can mix it along with the lentils and rice before serving. It makes a perfect meal with a fresh green salad. Also you can use 2 cups of vegetable broth instead of 2 cups of water to cook the lentils.

Lentil Cakes (Patties)

Rating: Unrated
These wonderful patties have undergone several transformations since I first tried them. I have used different soup mixes to season them, and added chopped nuts for texture. They are tasty with a tomato sauce topping or baked in a mushroom sauce for a fancy dinner. I like them best fixed up like a hamburger with lettuce, tomato, cheese, mayo, ketchup and alfalfa sprouts on a bun or good home-made bread!

Barbeque Seitan and Black Bean Burritos

Rating: Unrated
This is an easy, hearty meal for a family or dinner party--burritos also freeze well! Great served with salsa and sour cream! Habanero chile peppers are extremely hot! You might only need half of one to generate enough heat for your tastes! Be careful when you chop the habanero chile, remember to use gloves!

Red Lentil Curry

Rating: Unrated
This is a rich and hearty lentil curry, great as a main meal rather than as a side dish like the more traditional Indian dhal. Don't let the ingredient list faze you, this really is an easy dish to make. This dish is great served with basmati rice.
