Burger Wrap - great meal for after a swim!

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).

mmm, yummy, I'm defintely going to try this one! I remember you giving a recipe for "raw" lip balm but I haven't been able to find that post, I thought maybe it was under recipes but you don't label them that way! If you could point me in the right direction it would be much appreciated. Thanks so much in advance!

Hi Sprinkled Life!
Yeah.. that was a really good posting. Some of my favorite beauty treatments.. It was called Beauty Tips and was posted on Feb 8, 07.
The lip balm was one thing on that posting that I never did try.
Let me know how it turns out.
