I made a burger analogy - raw style, for lunch on Sunday & then I had left-overs - the rest I had made for dinner. I enjoyed it so much that I made it again yesterday - and made more!
It consisted of a burger (sort-of) with toppings of a spinach-walnut pesto, tomatoes, sprouts and a pine nut sauce topping all wrapped up in a romaine lettuce leaf.
Other great topping ideas: red onion, marinated shitake mushrooms, olives, etc
The Burger = equal amounts (I used 1 c each) of Brazil nuts & sun-dried tomatoes. Thats it, process them together in a food processor & then when it is all blended together form into patties.
Spinach Walnut Pesto = 1/2 bunch spinach, 1/2 c walnuts, 1 garlic clove, 1-2 T olive oil, 1 T agave, dash of Celtic salt & cayenne. Process all together in food processor.
Pine nut Sauce = pine nuts with a bit of lemon juice & water to make a sauce pureed together. I used my little spice grinder.. but it was a little messy. I think next time I'll try the magic bullet (mini-blender).
