Meatless Monday: Northstar Burgers

These burgers rock.

Even avowed carnivores love the taste, and perhaps the look, of these black bean and rice veggie burgers.  While they aren't the exact same as a Northstar Cafe Burger (that recipe is the most closely guarded secret of Columbus), it is my best attempt at mimicking the best veggie burger in town.

Here's this week's Meatless Monday recipe and here is your grocery list:

1 onion
3 cloves garlic
fresh beets (or buy jarred/canned)

jarred/canned beets (or buy fresh)
brown rice
1 -15oz can black beans -OR- 1 3/4 cups cooked black beans

olive oil/vegetable oil
soy sauce
balsamic vinegar
dried parsley
dried thyme

Lastly, Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!  Enjoy your day and know that YOU are very special to your sweet peas.

Life is sweet,

I found and tweaked a veggie burger recipe that is really close to the Northstar Burger, too. I'll give it to you and you can tell me what you think.

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
