    Blogger of the Day: Lee at The Vegan Version

    I am such a cheap date…take me to the local co-op and I’ll be overthemoon happy especially if it ends with a superyumful meal! Our co-op store has it all…organic everything, fresh local fruits & veggies, my fave vegan bakery, vegan salads and sammies from the deli, grind-your-own nut butters (the best!) and a huge bulk section where you can buy boatloads of beans, grains and soup mixes for much cheaper than big brand boxed versions. There’s always something new to discover and today it’s barley! One of the most healthful grains on the planet, it’s high in fiber and B vitamins like niacin and it’s ohsogood for breakfast! But today it’s gonna be these spiced up mushroom burgers from Lee. She knows how to throw easy ingredients together to create downhome comfort foods, plus she whips up all sorts of worldly stuff like Middle Eastern Pizza and Mexican Skillet Lasagna…so.freakin.good.

    Today’s cheap date has to end in burgers so bulk bin barley burgers it is! 🙂

    I like barley sugar sweets, does that count?!

    I’m currently loving Sainsbury’s Indian Lentil & Spinach Burgers :p

    And yes, I tend to bulk buy a lot just because it’s cheaper.
