Do you know what my favorite meals are? The kind that take 10 minutes to prep and 2 minutes to clean up. Don't get me wrong, I adore being in the kitchen- but there is just something so satisfying about spending less than 30 minutes on dinner and having it come out amazingly. Round of applause for me, I survived another crazy day and still managed to have dinner fit for a king! This burger is bold in flavor, damn delicious, and a little southern. I served it alongside with some simmered collard greens (recipe to come) and roasted organic corn and it was just perfect.
Wowza! It's been just about 3 weeks since I last posted. April has been extremely hectic for me, to say in the least. I was border line nervous break for basically the entire month, but with that said... I PASSED MY SECOND NATIONAL BOARD EXAM! That's right. I'm now officially eligible for licensure as an acupuncture physician in many states- just not the one I live in! Hah. It feels great though to know I can practice in many of the states I'm so in love with. I have two more board exams to take in order to practice here though and upon completion I will be a Diplomat of Traditional Chinese Medicine which covers TCM herbology as well. With that said... on to my next one! Just kidding, I'm taking a week off to pamper myself before hitting the books again. Anyways, last week I made these delicious taco lettuce boats that ultimately fell apart due to my poor choice in purchasing baby romaine spears rather than a large head of romaine lettuce. If you go with the large head the taco lettuce boats will surely be a success, otherwise it'll default into taco salad which is still rad.
If you're anything like me that title may have thrown you for a loop. Avocados in pesto? Sounds totally weird, right? Wrong. It's a magical combination that is creamy and divine and perfect in every way. The avocado lends this dish it's creamy texture and the basil, garlic and nutritional yeast really drive home that traditional pesto flavor.
