Bean Burgers (adapted from a recipe printed in the New York Times).
Here is a quick and easy recipe for bean burgers that are a lot less costly to make than what you pay in the grocery stores. Another bonus is that only whole foods are used to make these, no unpronounceable ingredients added.
With wet hands, form patties (makes 4-8 depending on size). May make ahead of time, cover and refrigerate, allow to return to room temperature before cooking. Spread or spray a bit of olive oil on cooking surface. When hot, add patties, cook until browned (be careful not to burn), flip and brown the other side until heated through.
Serve with whole grain buns, tomato slices, lettuce, a variety of mustards or chutneys.
Double the recipe and freeze the extra patties between wax paper so you can pull them out individually for a quick meal in the future.
In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.
I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes". I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book. I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.
If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me. If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe. If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
