Minestrone

Srilatha Italian Leave a Comment

Minestrone is an Italian soup made mostly with vegetables, stock, beans, and pasta. This is a lifesaver for vegetarians eating out, especially if you don’t do eggs – most restaurants make it with vegetable stock, but I always check to make sure it is not made with meat stock.
The soup is hearty, and very satisfying on a cold and blustery night. And it comes together beautifully with not much effort in about 30-45 minutes.

Black Bean Burger

I had some leftover black beans from the weekend enchiladas, and 1 beetroot. I typically make patties with beetroot, potatoes and carrots for snacks, and been wanting to make them a little heartier, and add some protein. And this burger was born! I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but it exceeded my expectations. I used a mix of ghee and oil to shallow fry them on the tawa/pan but it can just as easily be made with just oil, and completely vegan!
