How to make butter bean burgers

Butter bean burgers are good vegetarian and healthy alternatives to hamburgers. They can be eaten for lunch as well as dinner, and can also be served to guests during parties if they do not mind eating something entirely vegetarian for the evening. The ingredients which you require to make the burgers are as follows: four burger buns, butter beans, breadcrumbs, one egg, one potato, olive oil, chili powder, cilantro leaves, lettuce leaves, two red onions, two tomatoes, mayonnaise and five spring onions.

Firstly, boil the butter beans in a pot of hot water; when the beans have grown soft, drain the water and transfer the beans to a food processor and mash them. Secondly, dice the spring onions and cilantro leaves, and mix them in with the mashed butter beans, egg, potato, breadcrumbs and 3 tsp. chili powder. Thirdly, make four round patties out of the mix.

Following that, heat some olive oil in a pan and place the patties in the pan to fry them until they have turned golden in color. Whilst the patties are frying, spread mayonnaise over the bottom of each burger bun. Finally, slice the tomatoes and red onions in circular shapes and place them inside the burger buns along with lettuce leaves. Also place the patties inside the burger buns; the patties must be sandwiched between the tomato and onion slices, and the lettuce leaves. Serve the dish hot.

The songs and (the stars) that should win this year

The winners of the American Music Awards (AMAs) this year are set to be revealed later on today. The AMAs is more than forty years old with previous winners including Shania Twain, Rihanna and Katy Perry.

Drake is one of the music artists who has earned the most number of nominations this year. I think the Canadian star securing so many nominations demonstrates the kind of music plus music artists which will probably win at the AMAs this year and that means songs which can’t really be deemed too melodious in spite of the fact that they are famous plus music artists who, more often than not, exhibit songs of that type as part of their latest album release or body of work.

In my outlook, the wins at the AMAs should reflect the total opposite – music artists who regularly sing songs which have a good dose of melody, for example as artists like Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift do, plus songs of that type should win instead because those deserve to be applauded more. My picks:

Artist of the year: Ed Sheeran
New Artist of the year presented by Capital One: Dua Lipa
Collaboration of the year: Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line – Meant To Be
Tour of the year: Taylor Swift
Video of the year: Camila Cabello (Feat. Young Thug) – Havana
Favorite Social Artist: BTS

Favorite Male Artist – Pop/Rock: Ed Sheeran
Favorite Female Artist – Pop/Rock: Taylor Swift
Favorite Duo/Group – Pop/Rock: Maroon 5

Favorite Female Artist – Soul/R&B: Rihanna
Favorite Album – Soul/R&B: Khalid – American Teen
Favorite Song – Soul/R&B: Ella Mai – Boo’d Up

Favorite Artist – Alternative Rock: Imagine Dragons
Favorite Artist – Adult Contemporary: Shawn Mendes
Favorite Artist – Latin: Daddy Yankee

The Great British Seaside

An exhibition at the National Maritime Museum recently put on display more than one hundred photographs from photographers such as Simon George and Tony Ray-Jones. The photographs are from the sixties onwards, and they do a good job in capturing British people’s feelings, sentiments and moods regarding their sea sides. The exhibition has presented great shots of seas and people enjoying them, plus beautiful shots of British sea sides when it was pouring. In my outlook, the photographs showcases very special angles of British sea sides, such as the relationship it shares with the evolution of bathing suits over the course of many years and also the manner in which different people enjoy the British sea sides.

Ancient Egypt

What is Ancient Egypt?

Ancient Egypt is the name given to an African civilization which used to exist a very long time ago in what is present-day Egypt. The civilization had existed for several centuries. Ancient Egypt had produced many pharaohs (meaning: rulers) such as Djoser, Khafre and Ramses I. Hallmarks of this era include the pyramids, some stunning temples and illustrious tombs of pharaohs. In my outlook, Ancient Egypt was a very remarkable civilization because it had demonstrated that an African civilization which used to exist many, many years ago could create marvelous architectures (for example: the pyramids) which can still be considered as some of the greatest in the world; this is in spite of the fact that, since then, building styles have evolved and advanced a lot.
