Black Bean Burgers, Guacamole, and Spicy Yam Fries.. oh my!

Admittedly, this is kind of a cheater post, just because I am sharing the recipes from here: http://chefchloeblog.weebly.com/1/post/2010/08/burger-fries-combo-with-a-healthy-twist.html Chloe Coscarelli is a vegan chef of whom I am very jealous. She is makes the most delicious recipes, and was the first vegan chef to win the Cupcake Challenge on the Food Network. The day after the show aired, I thought to myself, "I wish I could find the recipe for chocolate/orange cupcakes... that sounded awesome." and there it was, in my inbox! Not only is she talented, she is also psychic! (ok, and she writes for Veg News sometimes, hence the recipe in their recipe club.) Turns out she also made up this avocado pesto recipe I was interested in! And then I found her blog, and I just had to try this veggie burger/fries combination. I've made it twice in two weeks... and totally worth it! (I just didn't make the mango sauce. Three meal componants was enough for me.)

Spicy Yam Fries:
(really are extra spicy, and I dipped them in the extra guacamole. What? Avocados are healthy!)
Cooking burgers.... (with carmelized onions...mmmm...)

The whole package:
(Spinach really helps when you need a breather from the spice.)

Both people I've made this for completely loved it, and want to make it for themselves. Now you can too!
