31 down, 19 to go!

July 18th, 2017 at 07:24 pm

New meals, that is.

Tonight I tried a new recipe to use up more CSA beets: beet burgers! They also had lentils and brown rice in them. Also onion, garlic, thyme, fennel, mustard powder and breadcrumbs.

They turned out really well! All the adults liked them, and the kids tolerated them (mainly because I made tiny ones for them molded into custom shapes Smile ).

I attempted a new room-temperature pickling recipe for some cucumbers and it ... did not go well. I had to toss two cucumbers' worth of yucky pickles. Frown

Still, at least the beet burgers were a success! We had them with traditional fixin's and fries.

I had an exciting discovery the other day: Hellman's makes a vegan mayo now! I may switch to them from my favorite vegan mayo. Theirs is pretty good, and cheaper.

    Sounds yummy. I am amazed at the recipes that exist from non-traditional ingredients. Nice job!

    What recipe did you use? I have a can of beets, and have never eaten a beet ... but want to try.

    I used this one: isachandra.com/2012/02/quarter-pounder-beet-burger/

    It uses fresh beets that you grate in a food processor, so I don't think canned would work.

    If you like big salads with lots of ingredients, canned beets cut up would be a really nice addition.

    I glanced around online and apparently they're also good in potato salad! Apparently they turn it very pink. Smile
