Everyday Happy Herbivore GIVEAWAY!!! and FREE Quick Burger Recipe!

Yes, that's right I'm hosting my first giveaway ever! The publishers of Lindsay's book Everyday Happy Herbivore have generously offered to provide a copy for one lucky reader!

I'm so excited to be able to share something I love with you guys. If you've been reading for a while you'll know how much I love her (completely affordable) books and blog. I can not say enough how happy I am to have found her, she's made adapting to a healthy low fat vegan food effortless and delicious.
You might remember Lindsay was kind enough to give me the chance to interview her on my blog. You can find the post and her bio hereBut for a quick re-cap Lindsay S. Nixon is vegan chef and author who uses everyday ingredients to create healthy, low fat recipes that taste just as delicious as they are nutritious. She continues to prove that just because plant-based eating is optimal for health, it doesn't have to also be expensive or time-consuming! Made with wholesome, easy-to-find, fresh ingredients with no added fats and recipes complete with nutritional information Everyday Happy Herbivore is the must-have cookbook for anyone desiring a healthier, happier menu!

Now I made sure I pre-ordered a copy of this because I loved The Happy Herbivore so much and I can tell you it does not disappoint. I've been using it for a while and my favourite recipe (so far) is vegan mayo p.272, or fudge dip p.260, or apple fritter cups p.248, or chickpea puffs p.247 or tofu ricotta p.212, or pumpkin sage pasta p.199, or creamy dijon pasta pg.197, or chickpea tikka masala p.175, or moroccan sweet potatoes and chickpeas p.172, or cheater G-nut stew p.107, moroccan lentil soup p.101, or eggless salad p.74, NO! It's grilled cheeze!! p.78 ok you get the point. I love this book and lots of her recipes. I love that all the nutritional information is included for each recipe (yay for no annoying calorie counting!) and the fact that they're so quick and easy to make daily yet delicious enough to serve to guests. I hope you're all as excited as I am! I cook from The Happy Herbivore or Everyday Happy Herbivore regularly and have not yet found something I (or my fussy husband) don't like. 

Remember how lindsay was kind enough to let me post one of her delicious recipes from Everyday Happy Herbivore with the interview post?- it was these delicious Apple Fritter Cups! (that are under 100 cals per serve!) yummmmm
well Lindsay has also been kind enough to share another of her fabulous recipes with you all today too! These burgers are a great yummy meal that you can whip up in no time.
Quick Burgers (109 cals each!)
Quick Burgers | makes 4

I developed these burgers in a hotel room: they’re quick, easy and require very few ingredients. (In fact, except for the beans and a seasoning packet, I sourced all the ingredients from the complimentary “breakfast bar”). I make these burgers any time I need a super fast meal or I’m really low on ingredients.

15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp ketchup
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tsp onion powder (granulated)
1 tsp garlic powder (granulated)
1/3 c instant oats

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper and set aside. In a mixing bowl, mash black beans with a fork until mostly pureed but still some half beans and bean parts are left. Stir in condiments and spices until well combined. Then mix in oats. Divide into 4 equal portions and shape into thin patties with your hands. Bake for 7 minutes, carefully flip over and bake for another 7 minutes, or until crusty on the outside. Slap into a bun with extra condiments and eat!

Chef's note: If you only have rolled oats, chop them up in a food processor or blender so they are smaller and more like instant oats. Rolled oats left whole tend to make the burgers fall apart.

  39. I am a not a vegetarian... And I don't really like those mock meat that I had in those vegetarian stall at coffee shop... This place to have vegetarian food was GREAT!

    We didn't order much mock meat stuff.. because I don't really fancy mock meat.. As Filipino woman, I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and decors of this place!
