I made this for my kids the other day and it was gone within an hour! Okay, they had some friends over but still. It is really delicious and simple to make.

I do not like cumin. There I said it. Why does every black bean burger seem to have a Tablespoon of cumin? Now, if you like cumin, then just add some to this recipe. If you don’t, well, you will probably love these healthy, yummy burgers. They freeze well if you happen to have left overs. The beans: Do you have a pressure cooker? Are you afraid to use it?

Instead of using vanilla extract, I use Taza Mexicano chocolate extract (you can...

Cashew Cheese

Okay, that sounds weird or maybe too good to be true if you are vegan and missing cheese. The truth is, it is really quite difficult to create something like cheese without dairy, especially the hard kind. This recipe is extremely versatile and creates a cheese remenisent of soft goat cheese. It also fills the bill for cream in both desserts, cream sauces and soups. It is something that I use a lot. You can even use it to make a...
