Meatless Monday calls for good eatin'! Tonight we had Blackened Black Bean Burgers with Steak Fries. This recipe is so good I can't wait to share it with y'all. Steak Fries are a new favorite in our home, it's a real treat plus they are oil-free so I don't feel so bad whipping up a big batch. Tonight we did it up. We had homemade tomato soup leftover from last night. I reheated it and when I came back from setting it down my soul mate left me a message! It's the small things in life that make my heart SWOON!
We only had enough soup to dab our fries in and get a couple spoonfuls. I thought I'd "beef" up our meal with Blackened Black Bean Burgers and Steak Fries. It was one hell of a meal that left us both with a nice full belly and a ton of satisfaction.
This meal is SO good I highly recommend making it for you or your loved ones. Plus it is HEALTHY! No guilt here folks.
I've been enjoying oil-free fries for a while now but never had the "perfect" fry. It turns out I was missing a secret step! This was revealed to me on Instagram. I LOVE Instagram if you aren't following please swing by, I post pictures and sometimes recipes when I'm not blogging. I love connecting with a broad community of like minded healthy foodies! It's really fun and I learn awesome tips and tricks. One trick I was introduced to me by one of my favorite talented girlfriends Nika @thefitfruitbat! She revealed the secret - curry powder! You slice and BOIL the potatoes with 2 tbsp of curry powder until they are half-way done and then you proceed to bake. It doesn't impact the flavor yet brings forth crispy oil-free fries that are to die for.
Elizabeth writes "I love your burger and fries and the idea from Ig on the fries is something I never heard before. The colors and designs in your food are amazing as always!"
And for dessert Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte's!
This recipe is SO good and helps stave off cravings for a cappuccinos and lattes! The recipe is from the glorious Kathy Patalsky of Healthy.Happy.Life. I love her blog and recipes. I modified the recipe to use a dark batch of coffee vs. espresso due to what we have on hand and stevia vs. maple syrup for a sugar-free latte!!! Oh yeah! Watch how to make it by clicking HERE.
I love finding delicious alternatives to some of my unhealthy habits. May you enjoy endless healthy and delicious meals and continue to thrive!
Best wishes for a vibrant week ~ Shine on!
For the burgers I modified and veganized a recipe from Sandra Lee on Food Network.
