i imagine i will be posting all kinds of assignments and sketches

this school year. what do i have to show for this summer?

a lot of recipes and a good handful of plein air watercolors from

west sodak to east sodak and beyond- but those are not digital yet.

so… here is an amazing recipe i have made twice now.

it is super easy and incredibly delicious! it is also incredibly alterable, you can pretty much throw in or take out whatever you want and they are still delicious.

veggie burgers!


1 giant 29 oz can chickpease

4 large eggs

1/3 c. cilantro

1-2 onions, chopped

1 c. alfalfa sprouts

1/2 c. panko breadcrumbs

1/2 c. ground flax seed


1 red pepper

1 tsp salt

lemon zest (one lemon)


any other veggies you like!

combine: chickpeas, eggs, and salt in a blender (if you have one, i don’t so i just mash and mash until it has a paste-like consistency). add sprouts, cilantro, onion, zest, and pepper and mix! stir in bread crumbs and flax, until thoroughly mixed- it should be forming a kind of dough at this point. stick it in the fridge for a little while, or let it sit for at least 10 or so minutes. this helps everything stick together and the flax and breadcrumbs to appropriate the other ingredients.

finally: take the batter and form patties! we usually make some right away an then we make patties of the rest of the batter and stick them in the freezer between wax or parchment paper, they keep for a long time and are super easy to fry up! drop some olive oil in your pan and cook them up!

as a caution: as always, check the ingredients on everything you might buy. we thought we were safe just getting “plain” breadcrumbs… but no. they contained high fructose corn syrup aaand partially hydrogenated oils. pretty lame.
