Raw Diet: Veggie-Nut Burgers


I don’t believe in dieting but I am here to try out healthy and yummy edibles. The year hasn’t been too adventurous since I turned my back on beef and pork but I wouldn’t want to limit myself to just greens, tofu, mushrooms, fish and fruits. Today, I tried out a new recipe that doesn’t require a skillet lest any form of heat and oil.

Sounds good? the word burger next to the Veggie Nut got me to try. Give yourself 5-10 mins tops to prepare.

What you need:

  • Food Processor
  • Chopping board
  • knife
  • Molder

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almonds or walnuts or pecans (presoaked nuts gives a more fluffy end result)
  • 2-3 large carrots
  • 1/2 large onion or more to taste
  • 1 large handful of fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • Garbanzo beans / Green peas (soaked in water) – optional
  • 1 tsp Crystal Salt
  • pinch of ground pepper

* You may add raisins, ripe mango

Procedure:

  1. Prepare all ingredients
  2. Put all ingredients in the food processor except lemon juice
  3. Add lemon juice soon as you have all solid ingredients together
  4. Have the food processor chop all the ingredients perhaps 30 sec – 1 minute
  5. add water if needed.
  6. scoop off the processed ingredients to the molder forming as burger patties
  7. Serve

You may also just mold the burgers yourself. You can also grill the burger if you want but this is meant to be eaten – Raw.

Serving size: 4 pieces

Verdict:

It does taste pretty good! Remember those liver pate we add to our canapes? it actually looks like one and the taste is sublime – not bad for veggie burgers. You may add sweet raisins or ripe mangoes for more flavor.

    What motivates me are my kids. Just seeing them inspired me that I should do my best. I push myself to go on and be strong. They need me they don’t have anyone can turn to when they need help. It’s a coincidence last week I just tried out to make banana loaf. Just funny I made it like a outside crispy due to that I almost burnt it. hehehe!!! I tried to make coz my boys love to eat and we don’t have that budget to buy that much. I always see bananas at my mom’s table. Got tired of eat bananas as is. So I googled a easy to bake reciepe. So next time I bake this banana loaf I make it sure to look after it so that it won’t get burnt.
