This year we are going to watch the SuperBowl because Raul @rj_c and our great friend @Julito77 have a bet going on to see who will win. Since we are related to Raul, Daniela and I will be cheering for the Giants as I am sure Julio’s wife and children will be cheering for the Patriots. You can follow all the banter by following the hashtag #PapaRebelde as well.
While we cheer on the Giants, we are going to be munching on some vegan and vegetarian friendly dishes. Below are several recipes already on the site that you can make for your families as you cheer on your favorite team.
Lately we have been fascinated with making Black Bean Burgers. I found this recipe in the Good House Keeping @GoodHouseMag Vegetarian Meals recipe book. I modified the recipe and ommitted the mayo. I incorporated salsa into the mix. You can use vegan mayo if you wish or use regular mayo.
I have been able to get seven slider sized burgers but the recipe says it is good for 4 sandwiches. We use burger buns instead of the whole wheat pitas. Do as you like, but you won’t be disappointed with the outcome.
