Drain the chickpeas and fava beans thoroughly and pulse in the food processor until lightly broken up. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to pulse until you have the texture of coarse breadcrumbs.
Gently form into patties.

Drain. Assemble the burger. Serve with more hummus on the side and tahini sauce.
Make your own vegan fig (well apple) newtons!! These look soooo good and I am adverse to most things made with wheat flour but dear lord, I love a newton. If loving a newton is wrong, lock me in jail made of newton’s and make me eat my way out as punishment. I’LL NEVER LEARN EVER!!!
Apple Cinnamon Newtons - Yikes!
2 cups wheat flour
¼ cup oats, ground fine
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup vegetable margarine
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp Molasses
1.5 lb fresh apples, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Juice of a lemon
To make Cookie: in a medium bowl, whisk together flour, oats and salt. In a large bowl, using a mixer beat the “butter” and molasses until well-combined. Add flour mixture, and beat until combined into a sticky dough. Turn out onto a sheet of plastic wrap, wrap it up, and press down to flatten a bit. Chill in refrigerator.
In a saucier or medium sauce pan, combine apples, cinnamon, half of the sugar, and half of the lemon juice. Mash a few times with a potato masher or fork. Cook mixture over medium-high heat until bubbling and sugar has dissolved; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes, until it has reduced by about one-third and is beginning to gel. Set aside until completely cool.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Cut dough into four pieces. On a well-floured surface, roll the first piece out to about 12 inches by 6 inches. Place on cookie sheet. Spread about 1/4 cup of the cooled jam along half of the sheet of pastry, lengthwise (ie, the 12-inch side), leaving a 1/2-inch border along the edges. Fold the other, naked side of the pastry over the jam-spread side, and press down on edges to seal. Create tiny slits with a knife on surface of pastry, about 2 inches apart, to allow air to escape while baking. Repeat with remaining three sections of dough, ending with 2 pastries on each cookie sheet. Bake for 25 minutes, or until pastry is just beginning to turn golden.
Cool on cookie sheets for 10 minutes, then slice into bars.
I’d be happy to help wedge stale bread up the bird’s asshole. LOLZ FUNNY CAUSE IT’S TRUE. Someecards has gotten considerably lamer but this card is rad. Send it to all your friends with a “NOT!” or a “PSYCH!” in the email attachment and that’s that. Also, please remind them that turkeys RULE!
Apple Cider Cups. GIVE IT TO ME. Some people are so damn creative, how do they do it!? My idea of creativity is figuring out clever places to hide candy from myself and “getting creative” with my taxes. Oh, or buying shit on Etsy.
Were there classes in this I somehow missed? Or did crafty people have crafty parents? My mom’s idea of arts and crafts is talking shit on every tacky bitch in town and so naturally, I excel at that. What? It’s an art form!
