We headed home for a quiet night in. I asked Greg what he wanted for dinner and I kind of already knew he was going to say black bean burgers. I think the man could live off those (and pizza)...lol! But it worked out good because earlier in the week I had gotten some parsnips to try making parsnip fries with so I had a chance to try those out. I also had an avocado, so more guacamole was in order. Dinner in pictures:
For the fries, I did half with a mix of just EVOO, a teaspoon of garlic, and salt. The other half were nut butter crusted ala GraduateMeghann.
Black bean burgers with some cheddar on top.
My plate with some of each kind of parsnip fry, black bean burger on sandwich thin with tomato, salsa, guac (and I added lettuce before eating).
My beverage of choice.
For me, the verdict on the parsnip fries (both kinds) was that they were decent, but kind of sharp tasting. Definitely different from a potato. They are shaped like carrots (and taste a little like carrots), and because of this, it's hard to cut them into even shapes for even cooking. I had many that were burned on one end and kind of less than done on another end. Greg actually liked them a lot, and I think he'd like to have them again, so I'll give them another shot.
