Raw Seed and Veggie Burger

This seed "burger" or patty, was surprisingly great and a hit with the kids. I think they each had 2 or 3.
It brought us back to the days of BLT's and burgers, without the sluggish feeling afterwards.:)
It was also great served with raw Chocolate Shakes.

For the Seed and Veggie Burger patty:
1 C flax seed
1 C raw sunflower seeds
Grind up in the blender together. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
In the blender add:
1 C fresh zucchini
1 C carrot
3-4 stalks of celery
1/4 white onion

Blend until there are little or no chunks. Stir the mixture into the seed mix. Form into patties with your hand and shake a little sea salt and black pepper on each one. Place on a rack or dehydrating sheet and dehydrate for an hour or 2.(The sun or dehydrator work perfectly) Then flip them and let dry for another couple of hours, or until your desired texture is achieved. I personally like them pretty dry.
Serve within a leaf or two of Iceberg lettuce, topped with tomato and raw ketchup.

Raw Ketchup Sauce
1-2 Tomatoes, diced (1 1/2 C)
3 dates, (soaking first helps them not to clump so much)
1/4 C Olive Oil
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 T Apple Cider Vinegar (or more or less, depending on if you like it)
1/2 C Sun dried tomatoes, finely chopped or soaked
Blend all until smooth.

Doubling the ketchup recipe may help with the smoothness, unless you have a blender that can blend small amounts of sauce. However, we have had it chunky and it still tastes great.

Simple Spicy Salad

This was a more simple version of the Spicy Thai Salad. 
Still so yummy.
Serving size:1

1 C Chopped Romaine Lettuce
1/2 Avocado, cubed
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, sliced into strips
Cucumbers-Opt. (not shown)

Top with raw Sunflower Seeds and Spicy Thai Dressing.

Raw Walnut Coconut Cookies

1 C Walnuts
1 C Shredded Coconut
1 tsp. Pure Vanilla
6 Medjool dates, pitted
1/8 tsp. Sea Salt

Blend  all until mixture sticks together. Scoop out with a spoon and roll into 1 inch balls and flatten with your hand. Transfer to a plate and chill in the fridge or freezer. Top with Raw Chocolate Sauce
Also good with strawberries.

Blueberry, Strawberry, Banana Smoothie

This was so cool and refreshing after mowing the lawn!

1 Pt. Fresh Blueberries
1 C Frozen Strawberries
2 Bananas
1 Orange
1-2 C Ice (Less if you want more of a juice)
1/2-1 C Water

Blend until thick and all the strawberries and ice are blended in.
Makes 5 Cups.

Avocado Spread

Originally I wanted to call this "Avocado Butter" but it's so much creamier, I just went with "spread."
This is so delicious on raw corn on the cob. (Yes you can eat it raw off the cob! I also like it soaked in warm water for a few minutes.)

1 ripe Avocodo, mashed to cream
1tsp Lime juice
1/4-1/2 tsp. Sea Salt and Black Pepper
Mix until really creamy. 

Avocado Spread is also great as a spread for any sandwich.

Tomato Cucumber Salad

The garden is producing yummy food right now, and with an overabundance of tomatoes I wanted to try something new. I know other recipes for this have a lot more onions and seasonings, but I made mine simple.

8 Tomatoes, sliced and seeded
1 Cucumber sliced, then cut the slices in half
1/8 Purple Onion, minced
Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
(You could also add a little Olive Oil)

Gently Toss
