This weekend I made some raw jalapeno burgers and raw marinara. After another pride-inducing workout at the gym, I came home and built this happy plate full of food! I made wraps from romaine lettuce and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I don't have a dehydrator (soon to be remedied), so I spooned the raw burger recipe into the wraps rather than making patties. It was a great meal followed by Ani Phyo's raw apple pie that I posted about recently. Mmmm!
Raw Jalapeno Burgers:
1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
1/2 onion, finely chopped
1 cup walnuts, soaked for 4 hours
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked until very soft, reserve 1/8 cup soaking water
1 tablespoon Nama Shoyu
1 teaspoon Hamburger seasonings
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
In a food processor, combine walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes and soaking water until you achieve a meat consistency. Remove from processor. In a mixing bowl, lightly mix together walnut meat, onions, jalapeno peppers, Nama Shoyu, salt and pepper. Shape into 6 patties. Serve.
Optional: Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 1 hour.
