Green bean Casserole

Mar 28, 2016 by

Saw this Green Bean Casserole recipe on food network good eats and just had to make it, instead of the can of mushroom soup recipe. I am trying to stay away from the can goods and buy the fresh stuff. Not to say that this is a healthy dish, but it can be if you leave the half and half out and just use broth ;).

Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt or sea salt
  • 1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed, and trimmed
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 12 ounces mushrooms
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • french frech fried onions
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. Bring a gallon of water and 2 tablespoons of salt to a boil. Clean and cut the ends of the beans.  Add the beans to the boiling water and blanch for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Melt the butter in a 12-inch cast iron skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to give up some of their liquid, approximately 4 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and nutmeg and continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add the broth and simmer for 1 minute. Decrease the heat to medium-low and add the half-and-half. Cook until the mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, approximately 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in ¼ of the onions and all of the green beans. Top with onions. Place into the oven and bake until bubbly, approximately 15 minutes.

Black Bean Burger

May 18, 2015 by

The first time I tasted a vegetarian burger was at Lenny’s. And I must say I didn’t miss the meat at all.  I actually liked it a lot. Not to say that I am becoming a vegetarian, I still like meat. I figured it can’t be to hard to make one, and here is my version of a Black Bean Burger.

Ingredients
  • 1 bag of dried black beans
  • 1 tbsp chicken base
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 (4 oz) can of chiles
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • ½ chopped onion
  • hamburger buns
  • mayo
  • tomato
  • pickles
  • lettuce
  • cheese of your choice
Instructions
  1. Rinse and wash the dried beans. Put them in your crock-pot, add 5 cups of water, 1 tbsp of chicken base and the package of seasoning what came with the dried beans. Cook on low for 12 hrs or high 6 hrs. After the beans are cooked I used 4 cups of the cooked beans. The rest you can use for something else like soup. If you don’t want to wait that long use 2 (14 oz) can black beans, but do rinse them
  2. Put the cooked beans in the food processor. Add to the smushed beans 1 egg, the breadcrumbs, chiles, cumin, chili, hot sauce and the chopped onion to the beans.
  3. Shape 6 patties, you can either grill them or fry them in a skillet. Remember you just have to brown them the beans are already cooked.
  4. Toast the hamburger buns, spread some mayo on the buns and top with the burger, cheese and the rest of toppings. You be surprised how good a vegetarian burger can be.

Baked Beans

Aug 3, 2013 by

Beans are a rich source of soluble fiber, the same gummy fiber found in oat products. The fiber acts in the body to lower cholesterol and blood sugar. Although there are more than 14,000 specimens in the legume family, only 22 are grown for human consumption. One of our oldest foods, beans were eaten often by the ancient Greeks, who would hold a “bean feast” to honor Apollo. Dry beans are a high source of protein second only to animal protein. Although beans were once called “poor man’s meat,” they have recently undergone a renaissance of popularity, thanks to health-conscious consumers who enjoy this economical source of versatile and delicious nutrition.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 lg. onion
  • 1 bell pepper
