Taco seasoned garbanzo bean burgers
Thank you all for the positive comments about my new years resolution post! There are a couple of other intentions that I aim to work on and I’ll let you know about them when time allows!
I am enjoying an extended time off. Due to some major confusions in paper work, my access to my lab has been postponed so I get Monday and Tuesday off.
Today I was craving Mexican like crazy and I knew I had to incorporate it in some form. So Taco seasoned bean burgers were born.
(Inspired by Cassie)
- 2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/4 tsp salt
Armed with the homemade taco seasoning, here are my garbanzo bean burgers.
- 1 can garbanzo beans
- 4 scallions
- 2 tsp taco seasoning
- 1.5 tsp sriracha
Mash the beans and add all the ingredients together.
Form into patties and grill/saute or bake.
Instead of going for a burger, I transformed it into a salad!
The salad contained,
- Baby spring mix tossed in a little balsamic vinegar
- cherry tomatoes
- topped with
- greek yogurt
- tiny bit of feta
- crushed baked tortilla chips
I am becoming so much better at including salad with every meal, I think my salad challenge was a success. I don’t even have to think about how to include a salad in my meal, it comes very naturally. If I don’t have anything to mix anything into the salad, I just toss the greens with the balsamic vinegar.
Breakfast this morning was exciting. With so many apples lying around in our apartment, I decided to incorporate it into breakfast. In the bowl,
- sprinkling of brown sugar
- Apples cooked in maple syrup and cinnamon
- chocolate chips (I cannot eat oatmeal without strewing choco chips on top)
Left me full!
