Bean Burgers ARE Paradise

Jeff Novick has a new DVD out for the making of healthy vegan burgers based on beans. I pre-ordered it in mid-March and it was FINALLY shipped in early May.

The day it arrived 2 weeks ago, when I was still feverish and hubby was just starting the coughing with this darn flu, I made my first batch. Quick and easy and they were on our plates within 10 minutes from draining the can of beans.

Hubby and I are still coughing, more than 3 weeks after this darn flu started in this house, but at least we've been able to have quick, healthy burger dinners as a break from the pasta or rice bowls I've been able to put together after dragging my butt out of bed for a few minutes in the afternoons. Maybe by next week I'll have enough energy to spend a bit more time in the kitchen. But for now, these burgers are literal lifesavers.

The Nelson twins Nina and Randa, Jeff's helpers in his 2 videos - not the *other* Nelson twins, Gunnar and Matthew, sons of Rick Nelson - are currently in Hawaii on vacation, and with the help of their brother made a music video praising these burgers, called Burgers in Paradise:

Now I have another song acting as an earworm! At least it helps drown out the tinnitis hiss that's been a constant companion. Thanks, girls!
