Tracy also has some comments about this recipe that she wants to share: Need comfort food? Wowzers! This is the most delicious way to cook lentils. I asked Urvashi (who is the author of all of the recipes I have shared this year) and she said it was okay to use any lentils but let me tell you that the whole black lentils are the yummiest lentils I have ever had! Don’t have an Instant Pot? Well, get one!!! Just kidding! If you don’t have an IP, just cook the lentils according to the package instructions along with the spices and herbs in the recipe. Lentils are so incredibly good for you and when combined with whole grain and dairy, they can comprise a complete protein. That is wonderful for a meatless meal or Fridays when you don’t want fish! This would be good over a whole grain pasta. Add a fresh spinach salad with other fresh veggies and you’re sitting down to one awesome meal.Continue reading
My lady, Colleen, made this soup for me in early 2018. I took a sip and was wowed by the taste. We’ve made it several times since and I love the taste just as much as the first time.
I made this for my son and his family shortly after the first time Colleen made it for me. It turned out well except for a small boo-boo. When I purchased the spinach, I didn’t do a good job of reading the label. Instead of baby spinach, I picked out a spinach and kale combo. It worked but I didn’t care for the texture of the kale in the soup. Anyway, on to the recipe!Continue reading
I enjoy a good curry. One of my favorite curries is a recipe I shared in early January 2019 and can be found here. That said, this recipe is another very good one that Colleen made in January 2019.
I’m not certain of the origin of this recipe as a search of the Net came back with lots of hits. For example, Pinterest has loads of posts about this same recipe. The actual title for this recipe is Curry in a F@king Hurry. Note that I chose to drop the “F@cking” from my recipe title.
This is the first recipe I’ve posted that uses an Instant Pot/Pressure cooker. Also, noteworthy, it’s also a vegan recipe.
So, bust out that pressure cooker and make some curry in a hurry. On to the recipe…Continue reading

TIPS: The black bean mixture needs to be refrigerated for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours prior to cooking. When forming the patties, it is important to pack them firmly together. Our favorite canned black beans are Bush’s Best. Serve the burgers with your favorite toppings or with our Chipotle Mayonnaise.Continue reading
