Not yo' mama's green beans and Lentil Pecan Burgers
Anyway--The green beans are marinated with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, shallots and toasted, ground almonds. It's pretty yummy, and makes great picnic food.
We also brought lentil pecan burgers--I love these, they used to be one of Selma's favorites when she was a toddler, and for some reason I haven't maed them in a long time--made with lentils, oats, brown rice and pecans--I make the patties and freeze them so they hold together on the grill. Of course all the non-veg folks wanted to eat them too, I find this always happens. I doubled the recipe so we'd have lots of leftovers, and my cousin Johanna and I ate burgers for lunch all week long--yum! I like to have the burgers with godess dressing, but they're good with the usual (I'm sorry we don't have a picture, but I think we'll be making them again soon.)
