Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
Want fast food? Sometimes you just need a little help. Tonight was that night. Morningstar Farms has a mighty fine Black Bean Burger, and with a few tweaks, it can be superb. Fast and furious, a healthy meal is just 5 minutes away. This is a great use for some of my previously posted Roasted Eggplant spread/dip. I slathered it on the bun (Arnold Multi-Grain Sandwich Thins) topped that with some fresh baby spinach, sliced onion, tomato, and a dollop of Amore’ tomato paste. Of course, I added some Cat 5 for a little spice and I’m beginning to love Mrs. Dash too. I’m also not using salt anymore if possible. Which, even though I was never a big salt user, yes, it is possible not to add any additional salt at all. A bit of fresh broccoli and you’re set!
For each burger you’ll need:
