Cooking is fun. Eating is funner. I cook, photograph and write these recipes.
Everything I post on this blog I make from scratch using fresh wholesome ingredients.. I've been cooking since I was a little kid.

My recipes are based on trial and error, along with studying cookbooks, family recipes, blogs and cooking shows.

Some of the veggies and herbs I use are grown in my garden. Yay sustainability!
I'm working on making my yard into an edible landscape. It's really fun to go out in the garden and pick your veggies for dinner!
I'm helping as many people as I can to plant edible gardens in their yards too. It's hard work but it's really fun!

    Very Umami Veggie Burgers

    These veggie burgers are the best! They’re savory and so delicious! They  have many wonderful ingredients, including beets, black beans, and quinoa, but I think the three main things that make them Very Umami tasting are the combination of 1) worcestershire sauce, 2) organic soy sauce and 3) cheddar cheese in the mix. The beets & red quinoa give them a sweet taste and meaty appearance too. 

    Here’s how to make these delicious vegetarian burgers.

    In a sauce pan, cook red quinoa with 2 small beets. Stem and chop the beet greens and add those to the pot at the end to soften and wilt. Drain the quinoa and set aside. Squeeze out the excess water from the beet greens and chop them up. Peel and Chop the beets into fine mince.

    In a skillet, saute 1 minced shallot and2 or 3 cloves of minced garlic, in 2 tblsp olive oil, add the chopped beets and cook them together. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside and let cool. Rinse, drain and smash 1 can organic black beans. Grate 1 carrot. Mix all the ingredients together with 1/2 cup cooked rice or bread crumbs, 1 tblsp Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp organic soy sauce, celery salt and pepper, a sprinkle of smoked paprika, a pinch of ancho chili powder, a little onion powder, some garlic powder, 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese and one egg. The mixture will be mushy. 

    Heat a skillet to med/ high, add a tblsp olive oil and spoon 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the mix into the hot skillet. Form it into a patty, cover loosely and then don’t touch it. Let it firm up and form a crust on the bottom before attempting to flip it or it will break apart. Let it cook for 2 - 4  minutes on the first side. If you try to flip it and it wants to break apart, cover and let it cook another minute or two before flipping it over. These cook about 7 to 10 minutes total, partially covered. You can add cheese after flipping if you want.

    Serve with sliced tomatoes, sliced avocado, a little mayo and fresh chopped cilantro or basil. Yum!
