I am providing three different varieties so you can find the one that suits your palate, time availability, and skill level best.
This is the absolute simplest one.
You can accompany any of these three burgers however you want. Sometimes, I love them the classic way in a sprouted whole grain bun with onion, lettuce, tomatoes, and honey mustard. Other times, I place them over a bed of arugula and spread a generous layer of hummus on top. It’s completely up to you.
1/2 cup raw almonds (use pumpkin seeds for nut-free version)
1/2 cup raw walnuts (use sunflower seeds for nut-free version)
2 Tablespoons hemp seeds OR ground flax OR sesame seeds
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup white onion, chopped
1/4 cup red pepper, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of thyme
Pinch of dried basil
3 Tablespoons water
Process all ingredients in food processor, until you achieve a “dough-like” texture.
Form “burger dough” into four individual patties and cook to your liking (either pan-fry for a few minutes on each side or bake on a lighty oiled baking sheet at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 minutes on each side).
