A few nights a week our calendar is pretty filled with events. Sophia loves to be busy and if she is showing interest in an activity we try to get her involved! On those nights that gymnastics or ballet get out at 5:30 I need to act fast with my dinner plans. By the time we get home we have only two hours to squeeze dinner, cleanup, and bath time in before bedtime… and we ALL need bedtime, especially on these days! I love to cook, of course on nights like these it is so tempting to order take out, or stop to eat somewhere on the way home… But it’s so expensive and not healthy. I never know what is being put into my food with msg, calories, and don’t even get me started on going out to eat with two kids! This brings me to tonight’s dinner. I literally had it on the table in 15 minutes! I think what took me the longest was cutting the toppings for the burgers. I probably could have had it ready in 10 minutes if I was being timed and not drinking a beer dancing to Gavin DeGraw on Pandora. This was a meat free burger dinner. You seriously do not miss the meat in these burgers. They are that amazing! I’ll share my quick dinner recipe below along with how I made it all happen 🙂 Hope you try my quickie week night dinner and keep it in your recipe rotation like we do!
Natures promise black bean veggie burgers chipotle
Put 2 quick cook potatoes in the microwave for 10 minutes wrapped in plastic wrap. Forget about them 😉
Cook veggie burgers with cooking spray on med heat for 5 minutes flipping every few min so they don’t burn add cheddar cheese.
Chop Tomato, onion, jalapeño, scallions. Prep bun with mayo on bottom. * while potato and burger are cooking *
Place burger on bun, top with toppings and add bbq sauce 🙂 Take potato out of microwave ( be careful) and use knife to pierce plastic wrap to let out steam.
Cut off wrap and open potato. Add butter, cheese , sour cream, scallions, salt & pepper!!!
Enjoy!!!Dinner in 15 minutes !!!!! Wayyyy better than take out!
