Arduous Plethoras

We were in a hurry to get out the door Sunday morning, but I was starving, so I whipped up these babies... it's 1 C Bisquick Heart Healthy mix, 1 scant C soymilk and 1 T flax seeds. They turned out great! Whee! So easy! So fast!
And here we have a riff off of Veganomicon's black bean burgers and the cilantro sauce that's in there. I sort of had the lime to use and had some cilantro left and lo! the sauce was borned!
And right there in the book it tells you that the sauce is good over the bean burgers but I didn't have any buns and so I decided to 'deconstruct' the burgers, and lo, it was good.

Boca and Black Beans with Cilantro Lime Sauce

1 can black beans (4)
1 pkt Boca ground product (2)
1 T oil (4)
1 t cumin
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
pinch cayenne

On med high heat, saute the onion, then garlic, in the oil. Add Boca, beans, and spices, mixing well with each addition.

Makes approx 2 C @ 3 points per 1/2 C.

Meanwhile, the sauce;

1/2 pkg silken tofu (2)
1/4 C cilantro
1 T lime juice (approx 1/2 lime's worth)
1 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1 clove garlic
2 T canola oil (8)

Blend it all up. It will turn green.
Makes approx 1 C @ 3 points per 1/4th C.

Started reading "The Sparrow" and wow! it's good! I'm so excited! A good book! Hooray!

No knitting, feeling distinctly unmotivated. All I want to do is buy some fancy Habu yarn to reknit my scarf in, must see if I have any birthday money left...
Also toying with a baby sweater idea, but getting out yarn and starting seems arduous. I should, because I know a plethora of babies are due like, right now.
