These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.

Melissa's Last Minute Chili
Incredible! 5.0/5
(1 rating)

My daughter and I threw this together in 45 minutes when our dinner plans were derailed. It turned out to have loads of flavor and was so easy to make. My kids poured theirs over rice for more carbs, but this chili is good and filling by itself.

Really good with quinoa, couscous, or brown rice.

You can use chickpeas as well - my gilrls don't like them so I switched to great northern.

I like a lot of curry - use as you like

I do use Chicken broth or Veggie Broth - both are equally good. Of course you should go with the Veggie if your a vegetarian. :)

Spicy Black Bean Burgers
Very Good 4.2/5

These burgers are spiced to perfection. To make them even spicier, you could melt jalapeno soy cheese on each patty and serve topped with salsa.
