Now this is a veggie burger!
Inspired by the Raw Family’s recipe for Gorilla Burgers, in their phenomenal uncookbook, Fresh, these burgers will both surprise and nourish you with deliciousness and vibrant health! Great for a little power-up lunch or quick dinner, you’ll soak up their energy and feel great for the rest of the day. Add all your favourite condiments like crunchy raw slices of onion, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, alfalfa or red clover sprouts, hot peppers, dijon mustard, relish or whatever topping you can rustle up. To make them even more delish and healthy (maybe we should leave out messy) serve them inside a collard, swiss chard, lettuce or spinach leaf. The burger at left has Dijon mustard and raw ketchup, also from Fresh.
Smoked Paprika gives these tasty burgers a slight barbecued flavour. If this is your first foray into a raw meal, you’ll love these quick little apps. You might want to double the recipe for company, because I promise you’ll want more than one! One recipe makes six small burgers or ten tiny appetizer burgers.
3 medium or 2 large carrots chopped in blender to a small coarse chop
3 cloves garlic, chopped fine
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
2 small or 1 large onion, chopped small
1 teaspoon smoked Paprika
1 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
1/2 cup pecans or walnuts chopped very small, or blended to a small coarse chop
1/4 cup sunflower seeds, blended to a small coarse chop
Mix ingredients together in a bowl. Form into small round patties and refrigerate. When ready to serve your appetizers, place each ‘burger’ on a large green leaf and garnish. Place another leaf on top if needed, or roll up and eat.
