Homemade black bean and brown rice burger.
Cook a cup of brown rice, you only need 1 cup cooked, but it makes more, but since it takes so long to cook, save it and have it w. some veggies another day.
Take a 15.5 oz can of black beans and drain and rinse them.
Them mash them with a fork in a medium bowl.
Stir in 1 lightly beaten egg (i only use the egg whites personally) and the rice (one cup cooked)
Add about 2-3 tbsp of your favorite salsa and mix together well.
Pour about 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet and preheat on med. heat.
Drop about 1/2 cupfuls of mixture onto skillet usually makes 4-5 and cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side, be careful they're not very sturdy.
I like to add some pepper jack cheese on top and let it melt. And then add some taco sauce. VERY TASTY, AND HEALTHY
you could add lettuce and tomatoe, or salsa and sour cream..versatile
Parmesan Potato Skins
Preheat oven to 400 F
Depending on how many people will be eating this...Take and lightly scrub some russett potatoes...2 large ones is enough for my fiance and I.
Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and add some olive oil tilt the pan around so the pan is mostly lightly covered.
Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch thick slices.
put them on the pan and add salt and pepper...add a generous amount if you actually want to taste them
Toss the potatoes in the oil salt & pepper on the pan so they are all evenly covered, you may need to add a little more olive oil.
Top it with some Parmesan cheese, be generous on each slice of potato.
Put it in the oven and cook for about 25 minutes, they should be light-golden brown.
It's not as complicated as it sounds, they are delicious, and a healthier alternative to french fries.
