- Grilled bean burgers - so good! Check out the link to the recipe, which includes beans and veggies. These are great to freeze if you make a large batch and keep a few on hand in the freezer to pull out when you’re not in the mood to cook. Another tip is to make salsa from scratch or pick up organic salsa at your local farmer’s market as a replacement instead of ketchup. Absolutely amazing.
- Creamy macaroni and cashew cheese recipe from the 30-Day Vegan Challenge baked with panko bread crumbs – yum! Although my favorite vegan mac n’ cheeze recipe still remains to be Vegan Yum Yum’s Mac n’ Cheeze. The secret? One tablespoon of tomato paste.
And people think vegans only eat lettuce and raw veggies – ha!
