Don’t let the frigid weather keep you from consuming a high-vibration, nutrient-dense diet. Enjoy the following burger recipe and watch your health transform from the inside out!
Raw Vegan Beet-Sunflower Seed Burgers [Nut-Free]
Preparation Time: 30 minutes + dehydration time
Serving Size: ~12-15 patties (depending on size)
2 medium chopped beets
1 red bell pepper
1 large carrot
1 cup ground sunflower seeds
1 cup ground flax seeds 1/4 cup olive or coconut oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar (with the ‘mother’)
6 Tbsp oregano
Salt to taste
- In a food processor, add beets, carrot, and red pepper. Pulse until all three are rice-size. Add the ingredients to a medium-sized bowl.
- Add remaining ingredients, including ground sunflower seeds, ground flax seeds, apple cider vinegar, and spices, to the bowl and mix well. Let sit for 10 minutes.
- When you come back to the bowl, the mixture should be thick in consistency and have a dough-like texture.
- Portion the burgers to 1/4 cup, and use your hands to form 1/4-inch thick patties.
- Place the burgers on a dehydrator tray and dehydrate for 4 hours at 115 degrees F (this keeps the enzymes “live”). After four hours, flip the burger patties and dehydrate for another 4-5 hours.
- Store the burger patties in the fridge in an airtight container. They will stay fresh for up to five days.
Raw Vegan Jicama Fries
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serving Size: 4-5
1 Tbsp coconut or olive oil (I prefer coconut oil)
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1 Tbsp chili powder
Dash of paprika
Salt to taste
- Peel Jicama and slice julienne style.
Place sliced jicama in a glass bowl and add coconut oil and salt, making sure to cover thoroughly. Add remaining spices and toss once more.
You can consume as-is, or dehydrate for 1-2 hours (my preference) to slightly soften the root vegetable.
And that’s it!
