"I try to cook vegetarian as much as possible. My then-16-month-old daughter loved black beans, so I decided to make black bean burgers. My now-2-year-old loves them! I like a sweet bite with savory dishes, so I added mango to an avocado salsa to top the burgers." –Marina Delio, Santa Barbara, Calif.
