Dinner tonite was courtesy of CalciYum! Hearty soybean burgers. I don't make my own burgers very often, just because I have the idea that they are time consuming and tedious. These did take some time, but with a little coordination, or even planning ahead, they could be made quickly. I did cook soybeans in my slowcooker for them, since I couldn't find any canned. Aside from the soybeans, these also have potato, carrot, celery, onion, ground almonds, tofu, bread crumbs, a nice touch of mustard and some seasonings. I love that they're baked and not fried, and they even hold up together pretty well. And...they have 24% of your daily calcium! I liked the flavour of these and I think I'll freeze some for later use.
Lunch this week, as I mentioned is lentil rice balls with pasta and tomato sauce from Vegan Lunchbox. I couldn't find any pomegranates like the menu suggested so I went with kiwi. And of course a square of dark orange chocolate. The author suggests packing the balls separate from the pasta until lunch or they'll get soggy. I find that they get harder when they're reheated so today I packed it with the pasta, and they were just right. I didn't get the greatest picture from yesterday but it'll do. I know you can all visualize it easily enough, I just like providing pictures :)
