Go!  Get yourself a copy of Dreena Burton’s latest cookbook, “Let Them Eat Vegan.”  You won’t be disappointed.  I love the way Dreena cooks and bakes.  Her creations have the perfect balance of healthy and delicious.  She uses primarily whole plant ingredients, plenty of beans/legumes, minimal added fats and “just enough” sweetener.  Eat all you want because there’s zero guilt!

The first recipe I tried was the Chickpea Pumpkin Seed Burgers on page 136.  At first I wasn’t sure that the burgers would hold together, but after I let the patties sit for about an hour they held up just fine in the pan.  I cooked 2 and refrigerated the other 4 patties (between layers of parchment paper in a storage container.)  Now I know that oats are a secret ingredient for vegan burger success!  I’ve used gluten flour before, but I’ve never used oats.  Oats work great– I think they’re my new favorite cooking ingredient!  The “resting” time must allow the oats to soak up moisture and this helps bind the burger.

For Burger Night #1 we had a side salad with a creamy horseradish dressing and some roasted Yukon Gold potatoes, carrots, celery and onion.

For Burger Night #2 I made the Raw-nch Dressing on page 47.  I didn’t have fresh parsley so I used kale instead.  It worked.  The dressing made for a great romaine lettuce dip and burger sauce.  We made some homemade potato chips!

For Burger Night #3 we had steamed broccoli.  Raw-nch Dressing also makes a great veggie dip.

I’m looking forward to making more out of Let Them Eat Vegan!
