Just a little Farmhouse Zen...

Need a little zen? Grab a big pot and boil together the ordinary, the quirky, the simple, and the sweet. Reduce to a simmer and add a sprinkling of yoga and a dash of country charm. Enjoy!

New Vegetarian Recipes!!!

Well, I updated my website today including a new recipe for Veggie Pot Pie. To save space, I decided to post my Bean Burger recipe here, as many of you have asked for it. In addition, I am also re-printing my recipe for Pineapple Bread, so I hope you enjoy both!

Bean Burgers:

1 15 oz can great northern beans (or any white bean) - rinsed and drained
1 cup Italian Seasoned Bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 egg - or egg substitute
1/4 cup buttermilk (or soy milk)
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin
hamburger buns
sliced cheese - sharp cheddar or pepperjack is best
spray butter or olive oil

Mash beans with fork. Add bread crumbs, onion, egg, milk, garlic, salt, and cumin. Mix well and form into patties. Grill patties for 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Arrange buns on a baking dish. Place bean pattie and cheese on one side of bun. Spray butter or brush olive oil on the other side. Place burgers under the broiler until toasted. Serve warm! Makes about 4 burgers.

Pineapple Bread:

1 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs - or egg substitute
15 oz can pineapple - diced
1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease baking dish.

Stir together sugar, oil, eggs, and applesauce. Drain pineapple and save liquid. Add pineapple to sugar mixture.

In a different bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Now, stir the flour mixture into the pineapple mixture and pour it all into the greased pan. Bake for about 1 hour.

Just before the bread is finished baking, dissolve 1/4 cup sugar into the pineapple juice over heat. When the bread is finished baking, take it out of the oven and pour the juice mixture over the bread...you may not have to use all of the mixture. Let the bread stand and the liquid absorb, 15 to 30 minutes.

Serve warm by itself or with some carmel ice cream...yummy!
