Meatless Monday: (Almost) Northstar Cafe Burgers

Did you think I had abandoned my weekly Meatless Monday Health Eating Challenge?

Um, no. The week of Christmas and New Year's I just figured you were a little distracted because, well, I was too.

So in case you forget, last autumn I started challenging my readers to eat vegetarian each Monday. There are countless health benefits to reducing the amount of meat you eat, some of which our family has experienced first-hand. But eating less meat is generally less expensive, better for the environment and can expand your cooking horizons, all good things in my book.

This week we're doing one of my favorite meatless recipes, (Almost) Northstar Cafe Burgers.

Here is your grocery list:

fresh beets (or use canned)
1 onion
3 cloves garlic

canned beets (or use fresh)
brown rice
1 - 15 oz can black beans -OR- dried beans, cooked
pickles (for the buns)

olive oil
balsamic vinegar
dried parsley
dried thyme
ground pepper
vegetable oil
toasted buns

hamburger buns

Have a sweet weekend!
