SO I AM BEHIND, anyone surprised? Nope. So I'll try to catch up a little.

These past two weekends have been Full Of Things; this has not been great for getting out on the bike, but the coffeeneuring challenge is great for making me find at least a few minutes here and there; in this case, going two places by bike when I might have borrowed [ profile] dphilli1's car.

Oh, and the annual Eggplant Party. So there's a recipe or two here as well.

Coffeeneuring #3: the bean-buying exception )
Continuing the theme of technicalities count were my eggplant party dishes; both used the eggplant more as filler than as primary ingredient, although you could taste it in both if you were looking for it, and it was a significant textural component.

The burgers were based on this recipe from The Tolerant Vegan, whose site I'd never seen before but looks like it has a lot of delicious things. I wanted something bean-heavy but not lentil-based -- lentils are hit or miss for me. So this one, with its white beans and hummus sounded great.

Since this was for the Eggplant Party (i.e. potluck), I made sliders instead of full-sized burgers. I also doubled the recipe and made a few modifications, but it's not that different from the original.

Next weekend, hopefully I'll get out for a decent ride on Sunday.
