This was inspired by Zoa talking about Bryanna Clark Grogan's Authentic Chinese Cuisine cookbook recently to make Dan Dan noodles. Turns out we didn't have many of things one would need to make this recipe, so I skipped to the chow mein recipe a few pages down. Much simpler for a lazy person like me.
A few days later I managed to get my act together and take a picture of something I've been making quite a bit of lately: the bean-oat patties from Melomeals. I have been having these for breakfast, actually, on top of a kale salad. This version, though, was a little different and I recommend the approach. If you have some beans that are highly seasoned already (e.g., for chili; in the present case, I used leftover lentils from the Veganomicon's Snobby Joe's), use them instead of plain beans for EVEN MORE NOMS!!!!
