Quinoa Black Bean Burgers
I make this recipe regularly and I don't know how it couldn't make any kind of eater a fan. Reviews that tell of its flavorlessness might be underutilizing their spice rack! You can really build on this recipe quite a bit, but I think it's perfect and hearty just as written. For the breadcrumbs, you can use similar measurement of flax meal, as well as throw in some chia seeds (I'd say no more than a tablespoon) to add even more fiber and Omega 3s. I also love using Ritz crackers, which are accidentally vegan, so you could make this whole recipe vegan with an egg substitute (flaxmeal works like this as well). I've done several kinds of peppers too. Top with mashed avocado, eat alone with a slice of cheese, put on top of salad greens or burger it up. Definitely, definitely try this very very healthy, hearty recipe. Thanks for this!

I can't believe how easy this recipe is. These biscotti are nice and not too hard like store bought, as one other reviewer noted. The holidays are coming up and I made batch after batch last year. THANK YOU for such a GREAT recipe. I've added almonds, dried cherries, diced dried apricots, amaretto, ground coffee, can vary on this for days. Thumbs way up for this one.

Curried Coconut Chicken
THANK YOU, Roma, for one of the simplest, easiest, most delicious recipes I've ever inherited or found! This is amaaaazing and delicious and had my boyfriend thanking me for days. TIP: I first made it without the tomatoes since I was out, and cooked the chicken all the way through. It ended up overcooked and rubbery. Might be the high altitude I live in, or the electric stovetop set a bit too high. I also simmered it covered, which will take away juices. The 2nd time, I only browned the chicken in the curry, oil, onion, garlic sauce. Then added the coconut milk, tomato sauce & tomatoes & simmered UNCOVERED. At about 30-40 mins, the chicken was cooked, tender, juicy, and you could pull it apart with a fork. Just a tip for anyone maybe new to cooking chicken or meat or just cooking. This recipe is HANDS DOWN DELICIOUS.
