Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
This is yummy, light, and refreshing. Just what I need for a healthier lifestyle and to help me on my fitness journey. To make it more substantial, I had added Chipotle lime chicken pieces for lunch. This time making it without chicken, I juiced less than half a lime to the broth (I used chicken broth) for it gives the salad a nice tang to the spices and sweetness of the corn. I have made this recipe twice so far for my weekly lunch meals.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
Even cooking noobs can do this. The burgers completely held together during the forming of the patties and cooking (I use a nonstick pan). The texture was nice: the outside was crisp and inside smooth and tender; there was no oozing/squishing action as you bit into the burger. On its on, the patty tasted of cumin which I wasn't very fond of so next time, I'll play with the spices. But it's a small complaint because topping the burger with cheese and ketchup helped with the flavor anyway. Overall, the burger is delicious, satisfying, and filling. I mostly followed the recipe except instead of breadcrumbs, I used 1 cup grounded rolled oats in order to absorb excess moisture which allowed for the veggie burger "dough" to come together in a "dough" ball.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
Yummy! The banana bread is dense, moist, and so delicious! I'm having a difficult time controlling myself from eating the whole loaf, seriously! I used around two cups of overripe bananas (about 4 medium-large sized ones), and substituted the baking soda with 4 tsp of baking powder since I didn't have any baking soda on hand. I don't know if the baking powder makes any difference but the end result was phenomenal anyhow. The bread turned out a tad wet but in my book, that's a pro in my case. I love the texture and taste. Will definitely make again.
