Hello my beautiful friends, and welcome (back) to SevenRoses.net.
Today we’re cooking a very special recipe, one that will shake up your weeknight meals when you’re pressed for time, craving something good but just don’t know what to make: Black Bean Salsa Burgers.
Whether you’re a newbie Vegan or a veteran in meatless Mondays, chances are you’re always on the lookout for the best bean recipe out there, and you’ve found it! This amazing recipe comes from Melissa Copeland’s brand new cookbook: 30-Minute Frugal Vegan Recipes: Fast, Flavorful Plant-Based Meals on a Budget. Let me tell you, if you are looking for a Vegan cookbook for yourself or someone you love, this is the book to get. I was SO excited to finally taste-test some of Melissa’s new cookbook’s recipes because I’ve been following and loving her blog TheStingyVegan.com for so long, and I was sure the cookbook would be stellar. And it is!
I love Melissa’s fresh and honest writing style, both quirky and funny and yet so knowledgeable at the same time. This is one of those cookbooks you want to read cover to cover, without skipping any introductory pages. She has a simple and effective way to tell her story, and I found myselg giggling at her jokes or nodding in approval. Melissa’s approach to Veganism is the same as mine, and as a veteran Vegan she has many useful tips for anyone who wishes to know more about Veganism but doesn’t really know where to start.
In 30-Minute Frugal Vegan Recipes she shares a ton of wallet-friendly, mouth-watering, easy-to-make Vegan versions of ALL your favorite foods. This book will show you how easy it is to eat well and be Vegan without spending a ton of money.
Also let me add that this book is beautifully laid out and the photos are just perfect. From Smoky Mushroom Fajitas to Peanut Butter Pretzel Truffles, from the Easy American Goulash to 5 Minute Granola, you will learn how to skip the expensive vegan substitutes and pricey health food stores, all while enjoying nourishing meals that are as pleasing to your palate as they are to your bank account.
Some of my favorite recipes in the book are:
❥Easy Orange and Ginger Veggie Stir-Fry
❥Spicy Thai-Style Buddha Bowl
❥Quicker-Than-Takeout Chow Mein
❥Creamy Sesame Ramen
❥Summery Peach and Tomato Panzanella
❥10-Minute Curried Chickpea Wraps
❥Mini Quiche Cups
❥Fruity Granola Yogurt Parfait
❥Effortless Chocolate-Covered Stuffed Dates
….just to name a few.
The common denominator among all these recipes and the rest of “30-Minute Frugal Vegan” is they all require 30 minutes or less, are made with simple, everyday ingredients and they show you how to make Vegan food easy, accessible, and most of all, affordable.
Melissa’s cookbook is divided into eight, intuitive chapters:
❥Cheap as Chips Main Meals
❥Quick-Fix Pasta and Noodles
❥Speedy Soups and Stews
❥Irresistible Vegan Sandwiches, Wraps, and Burgers
❥Savory Small Bites
❥Quick and Easy Morning Munchies
❥Snappy Sweet Treats
So to give you an example, in this book you will learn how to transform simple ingredients like a cup of beans, a cup of oats and a handful of mushrooms…..
….into the yummiest, most vibrant, most succulent burger beans you’ve ever had, crispy on the outside with the perfectly satisfying texture to bite into:
Such an easy recipe to make, you can also choose whether to prepare them in a frying pan with a little bit of oil or bake them in the oven (or even in an air fryer!) like I did.
I will also add that this Black Bean Salsa Burger recipe is healthy and high in protein: beans, oats and mushrooms are all very nutrient-rich foods that get combined in a seriously-good burger. Perfect for hectic mid-week dinners, al fresco casual parties and picnics as well.
I think it’s time to get cooking, so let’s dive right into the recipe, shall we?
