CRAVING A BURGER?
Nothin is like a great burger, right? I used to love hamburgers! I admit it, I did, especially on the BBQ.
I have not had a regular hamburger for years but I have had some great RAW BURGERS!! Thank goodness for the dehydrator. Normally I do not eat a lot of dehydrated food but sometimes I crave the heavy, dense texture of dehydrated foods.
I have been working with a group opening up a Raw and Vegan restaurant in Naniamo, BC. Today we worked on perfecting a couple raw burgers. They turned out fantastic!! I thought I would put up a couple videos on how to make a dehydrated burger.
The first video is by Karen Knowler.
HOW TO MAKE A RAW NUT BURGER
This summer when I am invited to a BBQ I am going to bring a plate of raw burgers and let people give the a try. Also, I can sit there along with the rest of them and have my burger along with some mayo and ketchup (all raw and made by me).
If you want some ketchup with your burger then here is a raw ketchup recipe I found on the site: www.livingmom.net
1 cup sun dried tomatoes (soaked in filtered water for at least 1 hour)
1 cup tomatoes
1 Tbs. minced garlic
1/4 cup onion, chopped
10 basil leaves
2 Tbs. raw apple cider vinegar
6 dates (start with less and taste before adding more)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbs. agave syrup (may or may not need to add this so taste first)
salt to taste
Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
Raw Burgers are great served on a lettuce leaf bun with the ketchup (as above or another raw ketchup), a raw cheese, organic dijon mustard and whatever veggies to want to add to it.
