Earlier I wrote about the Beyond Burger and compared it to both beef and turkey burgers, nutritionally and from a processed foods stand point. I promised I would share my preferred burger. Again I’m not saying a vegetarian diet is “healthier” than someone’s who may eat meat, I do eat poultry and fish as well as dairy and eggs, but I do prefer WHOLE foods that are minimally processed and I don’t feel that eating a lot of meat is a good dietary option, for me.
This past week we received our Misfit’s Box and it contained 4 zucchini. That may not seem like a lot, but let me tell you, I was able to create this recipe, two loaves of pumpkin zucchini bread and still had some left over for a zoodle bowl for lunch! (mmmmmm more recipes I’ll have to share with you!) Also, if you want to try Misfits for 30% off click here .

** Note 2: 3/4 of a can of black beans = ~1 cup. You will have about 1/4 – 1/2 cups left in the can for Step 5. If you are using canned black beans, grind 1 1/2 cups in the food processor with the spices AND 1-2 Tbsp of water. Leave 1/2 cup for Step 5.
