Easy Meal ideas for When You're Tired of Eating Beans

When I had my first veggie bowl as a vegan I remember thinking “I could eat like this forever, I could never grow tired of eating beans”. I was eating one of my go-to’s, a bowl with brown rice (sometimes millet or quinoa), black beans sautéed with peppers, onions, paprika and tomatoes, pico de gallo salsa and a dollop of guacamole to top everything up. This is still a regular meal for lunch at our house, and I love black beans dearly, but the idea that I could eat beans at every single meal forever and always and never grow tired of them, well, that was an apple of a different color.

Legumes are such an important staple in vegan meals and a fantastic protein source when eating enough of them. For most of us that means 3 servings per day, or a serving at every meal as I like to say. As we get older, or when we’re going through specific life stages, 4 is a great number to strive for. Legumes doesn’t mean beans alone though, peanut butter, soy milk, tofu, tempeh, veggie meats and many other meals made with legumes count, which means you don’t have to have a bean burrito for breakfast, unless you love the idea of course!

The minute I tried my first veggie burger I knew that I could go vegan no problem. Burgers have always been my absolute treat, my favorite thing ever.

I've created several veggie burger recipes over the years and they're always my nemesis. How do you get them chewy but also firm, moist but not have them crumble on you the second you bite into them. There's a little science to getting the perfect veggie burger just right, and today I'm giving you this very simple, high protein recipe that will become a total favorite (it has at our house for sure!).
