Sometimes spicing up your meals can be difficult or coming up with new recipes. This black bean quinoa burger is so delicious. It does take some time to prep and cook, but it is so worth it.
Vegan meals may not always be desirable but when you add all the flavor to them you will not even miss the meat.
I am not a vegan but sometimes I want something different. The black bean quinoa burger can be made ahead of time. You can make the patties and then freeze them and have them during the week or at a later time. But they also hold well in the fridge for up to 4 days.
If you have a picky eater you can try this chicken sandwich to satisfy everyone at the dinner table. With summer right around the corner, it is always nice to have options for all of your friend’s dietary needs. It would also make you the best friend ever.
