Foolproof Bean burgers ready in minutes!


Hello again,
Life has somewhat settled back into LA living after a week in Miami-although this British weather is not very appealing. Enough now please.
My yoga company is back in full swing after a long lapse while they put Humpty Dumpty back together again. Have a look and let me know if you and/or your company wants private yoga in home/office/beach. Insured/CPR trained and lots of experience. Yoga for every level.

Also just heard I'm to co-host a reality show based on the modelling industry. Stay tuned.
Now, let's get back to the kitchen for a brief while and cook us something super healthy in a matter of minutes.
You are not going to believe how easy these vegan bean/quinoa burgers are. Those of you that have already been following me are sure to trust me on this, but for those newbies, welcome and here is the easiest, speediest way to make a healthy burger sure to impress.
How about making it a meatless monday this monday? I'm not sure about you but I have experimented with making non meaty burgers before to no avail. They would fall apart and I would end up with scramble burger. Didn't score too high on the ratings:)
With quinoa in these too, you are sure to get lots of protein along with the beans. Enjoy and have a healthy week!
