Vegan Black Bean Veggie Burger

March 26, 2015

Thursday, which means it’s almost the weekend! Todays weather report; cloudy with a chance of rain. At least it’s a whoping 4C outside, yes I said 4C. That’s the first time in a long time that it’s actually been above zero. I can just about feel the spring weather in the air. You can also hear the birds singing first thing in the morning which is always a real sign that winter is leaving us.

I spoke too soon, it snowed some more this afternoon aarrgghh! I set myself a challenge, it’s a 30 day no alcohol challenge. Some might think that’s an easy thing but believe me I love my ciders! We spend a fair amount of time socializing with friends which usually means dinner out with a couple drinks. It’s day 4 and I’m holding out just fine, although it’s not the weekend yet. On to tonight’s recipe. Once in a while you just have to have a burger, a vegan burger that is.
