Oops! I meant a VEGAN Big Mac!!!
Yes, You heard right, a VEGAN Big Mac.

The last time we ate a BIG MAC was right after we finished watching SUPERSIZE ME (we weren't vegan yet or even vegetarian).
We told ourselves that we would enjoy one last BIG MAC and never eat one ever again.
Fast forward 6 years later.
We are now vegan and shamefully still desire BIC MACS.
Then one day, we come across this cooking show on FitTV called HEALTHY DECADENCE WITH DEVIN ALEXANDER.
Lucky for us, she was making a homemade BIG MAC with Special Sauce.
I tell myself that I could easily veganize her recipe.

For the patty, I mashed 1 can (drained and rinsed) of pinto beans along with some flour, breads crumbs, garlic and onion powder, diced onions, and salt and pepper.
Formed 3inch (super thin) patties and cooked them in a lightly oiled iron skillet until browned on each side.
For the cheese, we used TOFUTTI AMERICAN Style Cheese.

We've come to the conclusion that what makes a BIG MAC special is obviously the sauce.
I'm not gonna say what's in it.
You just have to trust me and click on the recipe link and make these ASAP!!!
I mean, we almost fainted after taking our first bite.
It's that good!!!

Today I Made:
Whole Wheat scones flavored with lemon juice, lemon zest, and fresh blueberries.

The recipe makes 10 scones.
We only have one left.
Nuff' said.

Another winning recipe!
