  • 5 cans black beans or pinto beans
  • Seasoning as desired
  • About 4 cups of quick-cooking oatmeal

  • ketchup

Snake-shaped dough tube with red tongue and black olive eyes

Pizza snake.

Contributed by / Susan Alexander

  • One package of veggie burger crumbs
  • Vegetarian cheese slices, mozzarella or cheddar
  • 8 oz tomato sauce mixed with garlic powder, onion powder, fennel and Italian seasoning to taste
  • Green olives, sliced, as desired
  • Sliced ​​black olives, as desired
  • 1 red pepper or tomato, chopped to make a tongue
  • vegan pizza dough

Fried veggie burgers crumble in a skillet. Add about 1/4 cup of tomato sauce – just enough to moisten the crumbs so they stick together. Add more sauce if needed. Add cheese and olives (if desired), keeping olives for eyes.
Dust a long piece of plastic wrap with flour. Shape the pizza dough into a long snake shape, then roll it out onto the plastic wrap, using a rolling pin, 6 inches wide and 36 inches long. The length of the snake is determined by the amount of pizza dough you use. The longer the snake, the more difficult it is to roll it!

Place the cooled burger mixture in the middle of the snake. Don’t fill the snake too much or you’ll get a mess. Use the plastic wrap to help wrap the pizza dough around the filling. Make an arrowhead shape at the top of the snake for the head and make a pointed tail.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the eel is tender. Garnish the snake with pepper or tomato tongue and olives for the eyes. Heat the rest of the tomato sauce and serve with the eel.
