Gluten Free Veggie Quinoa Lentil Burgers

Quinoa Burger

This week has been the introduction of a new month, a celebration to freedom and the 239th birthday of the United States of America. This weekend for the 4th of july (the independence of the United States of America) is an all American tradition of grilling burgers and hot dogs, enjoying the warm summer days, and enjoying any outdoor resources. My 4th of July couldn’t have been more awesome without the company of my vegetarian big family. We definitely fired up the grill with all of the vegetarian options, some family and friends camped outside, and spent our days at the river, swimming, slip and sliding, shooting bows and arrows and of course shooting guns…definitely did it the American way…only in a Vegetarian American Way!!! Below is my gluten free veggie burger I want to share with you all because it’s so practical and not only do I use them in burgers but also in spicy asian wraps, or Mediterranean with hummus and avocado. They are full of fiber and protein, and will satisfy any hungry taste buds!

Tacos de Jamaica (Hibiscus Tacos)

Tacos de Jamaica (Hibiscus Tacos)

tacos-de-jamaica

Dear friends & family, what better way to celebrate our Mexican spirit for our team’s enthusiastic performance in this soccer FIFA World Cup (yes I am talking about the Mexican team!). Señores y Señoritas… I present to you a TACO DE JAMAICA RECIPE. Who in their right mind would not love Mexican tacos??!! This is a special taco recipe because it is made with edible flowers– Hibiscus or Jamaica (in Spanish). Jamaica is a very popular chilled tea that is drank through out Mexico, so it is very easy to find hibiscus dried flowers in any Mexican grocery store.

There is something very exotic about eating beautiful flowers, and somehow this lovely concept of edible flowers invokes a feeling of delicacy and romance to a plate. The hibiscus flower has a natural tartness property, so I combine it with the creaminess of avocados and sweetness of fresh squeezed orange juice to create this ambrosial and tropical taco!  I really hope you enjoy this taco. Yay for the TACOS!!! (P.S. keep rooting for the Mexican soccer team!) Continue reading

Mexican Cilantro Rice

Mexican Cilantro Rice Cilantro Rice The Vegetarian Blog

Today I am feeling very happy for the soccer team from MEXICO :) and in the celebration of their win today at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, I was inspired to make a Mexican rice; but not just your regular Mexican rice. Ohh no, today I made Mexican Cilantro Rice. In Mexico or (I’m sure) in all most every latin country, everyone has a tía Lupe in their family (tía means Aunt and Lupe is short for Guadalupe). When my family moved to Mexico from the US, my tía Lupe was the first person to serve me a plate of bright green cilantro rice. It was incredible cilantroso!

This creamy broccoli and almond soup is one of my favorite soups that is delightful and very healthy. I was recently in San Diego and stayed at a dear girlfriend’s house, she is a beautiful mother, great cook & cancer survivor. I was telling her about this soup that is convenient to make if you are in a hurry, feeling tired, or in need of magical power for your brain :) this dish is perfect for creating a delicious and nutritious soup! A bonus to it is: that it’s creamy from the roasted almonds and cauliflower…. oh yeah!!! Continue reading
