Black Bean Chilli with Avocado Salsa - Mexican The now familiar chilli con carne has suffered from its fair share of convenience shortcut versions but when it's made properly, with the right ingredients, it is still a wonderful concept. I think this version is even better than the original, using black beans and introducing the subtle flavouring of lime and coriander – and adding a contrasting cold garnish at the end. Serves 4-6 This recipe is taken from Delia Smith’s Winter Collection. Either pre-soak the beans overnight or start this recipe 3 hours ahead of time and begin by placing the beans in a large saucepan, covering them with cold water and bringing them up to boiling point and boiling for 10 minutes. Then turn the heat off and let them soak for 3 hours. Towards the end of the soaking time, pre-heat the oven to gas mark 2, 300°F (150°C). After that, take the casserole, heat half the oil in it and cook the onions, garlic, coriander stalks and chillies gently for about 5 minutes. Then remove it and brown the rest in 2 batches.

quinoa basil bean burgers with basil aioli Big thank yous to all of the sweet messages about Missy – it was a sad night, and today all I want to do is sit and hug Basil. We just returned from a long walk in the sunshine, and I’m about to get a late start to my workday. I wanted to finish up this post that I wasn’t able to complete last night. Just had to get my extra Basil time in – last night and today. This is the other basil in my life – fresh basil from the garden just cannot be beat. Basil adds great flavor to one of our favorite burgers – and over the years I have adapted this recipe just a bit. Jason enjoyed his with our favorite cheddar and more red onion: I actually made those gluten free rolls for another project not involving burgers at all – but they prompted me to attempt a gluten free roll recipe that more closely resembles a burger roll. white bean quinoa burgers egg, soy, dairy and gluten free, vegan makes 6 large patties, 10 slider size Grind flax seed in blender, coffee grinder. vegan basil aioli
