What I Ate This Week | Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli (Because aioli is kind of my thing now)

Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli

Yes, I realize this is the second post involving aioli this week. It’s like when I discovered peanut sauce and went through a phase when I put it on everything. (Okay, that wasn’t a phase. I still put peanut sauce on everything. Hush.) And maybe you’re all, “Hey Kiersten, aioli is so 2002” and maybe that’s true, but this is cashew aioli, so it’s different, okay? Just let me have my aioli moment.

Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha AioliBlack Bean Burgers with Sriracha Aioli from Cooking Light // Homemade black bean burgers! That is worth getting excited about, right? But what makes these burgers even better is that they’re topped with sriracha aioli. YES!

Healthy Apple Cobbler MuffinsHealthy Apple Cobbler Muffins from Two Healthy Kitchens // I love a good muffin in the AM. These are dense, apple-y, and they have a delicious crumb topping too. And the only thing better than a muffin is a muffin with crumb topping! (The flour sack towel in the photo is from my friend Milisa from Miss in the Kitchen–you can buy them here!)

Vegan Pumpkin Cheesecake TrufflesVegan Pumpkin Cheesecake Pops from Tasty Yummies // I made these without the sticks, so they’re really more accurately described as cheesecake truffles. Cheesecake bites? Well, whatever, they’re delicious! They’re made without refined sugar and with cashew cream instead of dairy. Want more cashew cream ideas? Meg put together a cashew cream recipe round-up on Potluck last week!

Jamaican Jerk Tempeh with Vegetables and QuinoaJamaican Jerk Tempeh and Vegetables from One-Dish Vegan // I bought this cookbook because I’m a big fan of one-dish meals and this one didn’t disappoint. We had this over quinoa and had tons of leftovers, so we got lunch and dinner out out of it.

Creamy Mushroom FettuccineCreamy Mushroom Fettuccine from Cooking Light // I added more mushrooms to this recipe, hence the high mushroom-to-fettuccine ratio in this photo. I whipped this together in a snap, so it made a great busy weeknight meal.

Lentil Soup with Cauliflower and CheeseLentil Soup with Cauliflower and Cheese from Martha Stewart Living // Lentil soup with cauliflower? With broiled cheese on top? I want to eat this always. The weather is starting to finally get chilly here and this is the kind of meal I want to eat right now. Cold weather + hot soup = happy Kiersten.

You can catch me over on Momcomm this week where I’m sharing a guest post about my experience conducting a reader survey on my blog. If you’re a blogger and you’ve been thinking about doing a reader survey, this post will give you the lowdown on how I did it!

i wish you could see my face sometimes when i read your blog. it’s like my jaw literally drops and i squeal at how excited i am over your recipes. dork!! i am so excited about this sriracha aioli right now… happy friday!

Awwww … Kiersten! Gretchen and I are so thrilled you featured our Apple Cobbler Muffins! You always have such awesome recipe round-ups – I totally look forward to them! As a huge Cooking Light fan, I was excited to see the two recipes of theirs you featured, neither of which I’ve tried yet (I’ve gotta get right on that)! And Martha’s soup with melty cheese on top?!?!? Yes, I want to eat it always right along with you (perhaps always followed by those pumpkin cheesecake pops)! Oh – and please keep having that aioli moment!!! 😀

Thank you for the recipe–they were awesome! I’m making another Cooking Light recipe this week too. Turnip fries with pomegranate ketchup! We’ll see how they turn out because I’m kind of on the fence about turnips. 🙂

I’m sure I’ve said this before but you eat the best food! Seriously, wow!
I’m so feeling a bean burger right now, and those pumpkin “truffles” look insanely good.
Hope you share your thoughts on “One Dish Vegan” once you’ve tried a few recipes. I’m considering getting a copy but would like to read a review first.

Hi:) All of it looks so delicious. I would love to eat the burgers. Recently (because of the weather) I have a “phase” as you call it for burgers and heavy soups. So thank you for sharing those recipes:)
I just wanted you to know that your blog gives me great motivation to eat healthy and delicious food:)

Somehow I missed this Kiersten!! Thank you for sharing and I am sooo excited you loved the pumpkin cheesecake pops/bites. Your photo is beautiful!!! I need to make them again that way, the sticks add a whole ‘nother level of steps between making these and shoving them into my face 😉

I love these roundups that you do, soo much fun. Thanks again!
