Beet Burgers

Originally published as "Vegetarian Cutlets", we informally call them beet burgers and dress them like a regular beef burger. Fry them on the first side to get a little crust so they hold together when flipping. I sometimes use two spatulas to flip the burger, one to lift the burger out of the pan and then carefully place another spatula on top. Turn them over and slide the burger off the 2nd spatula, now on the bottom, back into the pan.

Roasted Squash Salad with Crispy Shallot & Balsamic Reduction

"An incredibly flavorful fall roasted squash salad with macadamia nut cheese, crispy shallot, and balsamic reduction! A hearty side or main. Just 30 minutes and 10 ingredients required!"

We substitued some pan fried Halloumi cheese in place of the macadamia nut cheese. And we baked some sweet potato fingers at the same time as the squash for our non-squash eating picky eaters. We baked at 375°F to prevent burning of the sweet potato.

Curried Vegetable and Chickpea Stew

This is a great clearing-out-the-fridge recipe. My inspiration actually came from an old Cooking Light recipe and a fridge full of vegetables that needed using—but not all vegetables that the original recipe called for. I love the big pieces of cauliflower that came from that experiment, but I have also made versions with parsnips, turnips, winter or summer squash, extra carrots, and swiss chard.
