Sweet Potato and Chickpea veggie patties

To keep me from eating toast for dinner, I made some homemade sweet potato and chickpea veggie patties. They are tasty with some homemade tahini sauce and a nice argula salad. You can serve these veggie patties on a bun and eat them like a veggie burger, but I prefer mine without the bun. They are vegan and may be paleo too, but I am not a paleo expert. They freeze really well and are a great weekday meal solution. Just make up a batch on the weekends, freeze and defrost as you need them.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cooked, peeled and chopped sweet potatoes
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 1 tablespoons safflower oil, plus extra for coating
  • 1 1/2 garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Tahini
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons tumeric
  • 2 teaspoons Tamari
  • 1/2 cup of raw cashews, coarsely chopped

How-to:

  1. Add everything, excluding the cashews, to a food processor. Blend well, stopping to scrape down the sides. Add a little bits of water if mixture appears to not be mixing well.
  2. Add chopped cashews to sweet potato mixture.
  3. Roll mixture into large meatball-sized balls. The mixture will be very gloopy. Do not worry, this is normal.
  4. Place balls on a parchment lined cookie sheet and flatten with a spatula. If the spatuala sticks, roll it in some oats first.
  5. Brush oil on both sides of the patties.
  6. Cook on 400 for 25 minutes, turning once to brown both sides.

Topping suggestions: tahini sauce; mango salsa; fresh tomato, cilantro and lime crema; or guacamole.

I am fascinated by other people’s collections. I’m not much of a collector myself, I do dabble a bit, but there’s something about the dedication one gives to their collection.

I recently came across these beautiful photos by balanced.crafts of a mineral geode collection and I just had to share.

It’s quite last minute, actually as of yesterday, I am coming to Chicago next week for the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training. I’m not really sure that I will have any free time, but if I do, where should I go and what should I do? What are the iconic and the off-beaten things that everyone must do/visit when they go to Chicago? I’ve never been before and I really would like to do at least one thing outside the hotel and outside the conference. Tell me about it, Chicago. What can’t I miss?

I recently made my own home made granola. My husband is avoiding gluten because of the relief it gives him from a chronic health condition. He can tolerate oats though and I’ve been buying boxes store bought granola, but the packaging is so wasteful and not to mention it’s often pretty expensive–especially the higher quality versions without extensive amounts of added sugars. So, I decided to make my own and it was pretty easy.

Ingredients:

  • Rolled oats
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Slivered almonds
  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • Vanilla

Basically you toast the oats and other add-ins on low heat in the oven for from 4-12 minutes. I recommend toasting them separately as opposed to after mixing the ingredients–they each have separate toasting times.

It lasts for about a week.

Experiment with your add-ins and flavorings. For my next batch, I’m going to add sesame seeds and ginger.

The dog days of summer have come early to my neck of the woods. It’s only early July, but the humidity and the heat make it seem more like August (and if we don’t want this trend to get worse, we might want to do something about it).

Anyway, I’m feeling a little down about the weather right now and I need some inspiration to help me appreciate what I’ve got–winter will be here all too so I know. Of course, I thought I’d share that inspiration with you too!

A couple of months ago I told you about the pink flamingo challenge. Well, the deadline of July 19th is fast approaching, so I got down to work the other night. I’m still trying to work out how to make the one look like owls–I’m not a fan of flamingos and you all know I love owls.  I got to work on the first one and made it into a glittery swan princess–no more flamingo!

I tell you she turned out way glittery! Here’s how they looked before I got started.

So, anyone have any tips on how to turn the other one into an owl?

Today marks the day that same sex couples can obtain a marriage license in my state. I was happy to be able to join in the celebration for the very first couple to take advantage of that new found freedom. I hope we, myself and about 100 other assembled people, helped to make their day more special! Of course, we were also there to help drown out the hateful Westboro Baptist Church protesters (only 6 of them).

In the end, love always wins. Didn’t WBC watch The Princes Bride? Love will always triumph over hate and evil.

DIY Ecthed Glass Containers

I’m back at work today after my birthday vacation last week. Actually I was back to work over the weekend trying to get caught up. Vacation is fun and all, but not the getting behind on work part…

While I was on vacation, Organic Authority shared a post I wrote for them that I thought you all might like. It’s all about how to create your own ‘etched’ and ‘stained’ glass containers like the ones above.

Read it here.
