With the strong flavor of orange and strawberries, combined with creamy banana and a surprisingly smooth taste from spinach, you get at least 2.5 servings of fruit & veggies! Pretty awesome..

Mrs. K's Black Bean Burgers (Un-Chained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.0/5
(10 ratings)

I have always liked vegetarian "burgers" as an alternative to their high fat, high sodium meat counterparts. When my co-workers and I decided to go to Chili's for lunch, I assumed that the "Guiltess Black Bean Burger" would be just that...or at least a healthy alternative. It sounded delicious, but when I looked up the nutritional content before we left the office, I was shocked to see that one burger contained 1790 mg of sodium...More than I would like to consume for an entire day!! Since I'm watching sodium content, this was clearly not a good choice and I ordered something else. I figured I could make a much more heart healthy recipe and add some avocado, one of my favorites! Here it is:

Zesty Pizza Sauce
Very Good 4.8/5
(16 ratings)

This is a great sauce for most pizzas--I use it most frequently on veggie pizza but also works for supreme, meat pizzas, or any classic combo of meat, cheese & veggies.
