Wondering how to eat healthy and still enjoy backyard summer parties? Here is my recipe for the BEST summer burgers ever! Bring these to your next BBQ and I guarantee no one will miss the meat or the heat!
- 1 c sprouted sunflower seeds
- 1 c walnuts, soaked and dehydrated
- 1 mango, extra ripe
- 1/4 c fresh tarragon, lightly packed
- 1/4 c flax meal + 1/2 c water
- 1 clove garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in food processor until smooth. Stir in:
- 1/2 c coconut flour
Form 4 inch patties and place on mesh dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate at 110 degrees for 2 hours or until outer edges are slightly dry. Serve wrapped in butter lettuce and topped with avocado and spicy horseradish mustard.
Cooked option: Grill and serve on Gluten-Free bread with horseradish mustard, grilled red onions, avocado and arugula.
Yield: approximately 9 patties
Quick Tip: Make a double batch ahead of time and freeze for easy grab and go party food. *(Remember dehydration time will be longer if patties are frozen).
