Dear Cancer Project supporter,

This recipe is an excellent source of low-fat protein, combined with nutrient-rich zucchini. 


Makes 6 servings

8 ounces dry gluten-free grain (quinoa, rice, etc.)
1/2 cup water
1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 celery stalk, thinly sliced
2 medium zucchini, chopped
3 vegan burger patties, chopped
1 15-ounce can garbanzo beans, undrained
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cook grain according to package directions. Drain and rinse, then set aside.

Heat the water in a large skillet. Add onion and garlic. Cook over high heat for about 3 minutes, or until onion is soft. Add mushrooms and celery and continue cooking, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until mushrooms begin to brown. Add a small amount of water if the vegetables begin to stick. Add zucchini and vegan burger patties. Continue cooking, stirring often, for about 3 minutes, or until zucchini is just tender when pierced with a fork.

Purée beans and their liquid in a blender or food processor. Add to the vegetable mixture, along with grain and salt. Heat gently, stirring frequently, until hot and steamy.
