Step#2 Slice mushrooms about half an inch thick. Place slices on baking pan. Lightly Drizzle Olive oil. Then throw on the herbs! Mix around until they are all seasoned evenly.

Step#3 Place in oven for 15-20 minutes. Depending on oven. They should should be firm, but softened.

Step#4 During the last few minutes of baking the mushrooms, put in the buns to make them toasty.

Step#5 While they are baking, measure out 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar. Pour in pot. Over medium heat, stir for 3-5 minutes. It will become syrupy. Take off heat.

Step#6 Take buns and mushrooms out of the oven. Spread the Goat cheese on the warm buns on one side and the lemon hummus on the other.

Step #7 Place spinach and mushrooms on the bun and lightly drizzle the balsamic reduction sauce you have made.

SIDE NOTE: You do not have to use lemon hummus, you can use whatever flavor. Ive just found lemon to be the best suited with the burger. You can also add some roasted red peppers to the burger!

Pictures to come when I make them next!

Haven't written on my blog in a while. Decided to start up again. What I am going to do is start writing weekly/daily recipes that i come up with or recipes I find online that I want to make! They will mostly be healthy and easy to make. I used to have such a hard time finding ways to eat healthy but tasty foods! But I am slowly getting the hang of it. :)

Recipe #1 : Crispy Kale

I went to the farmers market down the street from me and grabbed a bunch of fresh kale. I washed, then dried. It is very important to dry thoroughly.

1. Coat lightly with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2. Oven at 400F for 10-15 minutes. ( You do not want it to brown. Just crispy.)
3. Take out, Lightly season. I used Creole seasoning. It was amazing.

Next time I will Take pictures.

You can also use the same instructions for Garbanzo beans.

Simple and tasty ways to make veggies fun to eat :)
