Peanut Butter and Black Beans Chocolate Dough Balls

Idea came from chickpea cookie dough balls recipe and black bean brownies. Not too sweet, smooth and chocolate balls, great cooled or even frozen. For sweetener I used date syrup – it adds some sour taste, like in real dark chocolate.

Lentil and Sorrel Soup

Winter outside, spring in the hearts and summer daylight saving time. Bought two bunches of mysterious “sour grass” at DePiero’s Farms, turned out it was sorrel, so made this hearty but low calories soup, that works great for cold Meatless Monday evening.

Inspired by The Guardian Sorrel Recipes.
