Saturday morning was pretty awesome. Gemma slept the night before from 7:30pm until 9:15am, Ashton slept until 8:30am so I felt like I could do ANYTHING! With all the super-power I had, I decided to make gluten-free veggie burgers from scratch while Gemma was taking her morning nap.
I based it loosely on a few recipes I found on-line (hindsight, maybe I should have tightened it up a bit and followed a recipe) and started tossing ingredients into the food processor.
First up, chickpeas:
It pretty much was a green pancake. About six of them. Blah. They were a little dry, a little bland and definitely gave me admiration for all the companies out there that make them successfully. I was going to toss them, until……
Turns out my picky-eater toddler loved them (dipped in ketchup of course)!The kid who typically won’t eat much other than cheese and pasta ate almost all of these veggie-packed, tasteless discs.
I’ll call it a WIN!
