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.
