Good tasting, bad looking

This is one of those recipes that shouldn't taste as good as it, miraculously, does. It is Jami's recipe, but she seems to be having trouble finding time to post, so I'll just do it for her!

It's healthy. It's easy. It looks sick. Try it anyway. You'll be pleasantly surprised*


2 C dry garbanzo beans
4 green onions, thinly sliced
1 package sliced button mushrooms
1 shredded carrot
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 TBS horseradish
2 TBS lemon juice
2 tsp yellow mustard

In a crock pot, cook the beans for 6 hours or so (submerged under several inches of water). When they are very soft, strain them and add the other ingredients. Let them sit for fifteen minutes or so, until the mushrooms are soft. That's it.

*You'll be surprised at how good it tastes for really super healthy vegan food. You may not be pleasantly surprised if you expect it to taste like a cheeseburger.
