Black Bean Burger with Garlic Aioli

For the past few weeks, I’ve been experimenting with black bean meat substitutes. I first tried black bean balls (stop laughing and think meat balls). I baked them and didn’t use any kind of egg replacer. The result: dry and not what I was hoping. Last week, I tried my hand at making burgers, this time, adding ground flax to help bind and moisten. I also felt it would go great with some type of aioli, and I was right! This recipe is super easy and very satisfying. Happy Meatless Monday to all and to all a good bite!

Delightful Almond Cookies

These vegan cookies are amazing! They cater to your sweet tooth without giving you a sugar rush. I got this recipe from Everyday Maven, and tried it out on Easter for the first time. Perfect holiday cookie or perfect tea time treat! I plan to make these babies for Christmas this year, but dipping them in powdered sugar to reminisce about Keebler’s Almond Crescents, which was a family favorite of ours around the holidays.
