|Lucious Red Bell Peppers.|
This is a simple recipe. You chop up your peppers, onion, celery and throw in mixing bowl. Add your ground sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, and ground flax, spices and a bit of water. You mix. Yep, Finished!! Make your little patties. Mine are not perfect little round burgers, but rugged individualists :)
Plop in the dehydrator for about 4 hours.
|Red Peppers. Can be pricey organic, but you may only need one if it's a good size.|
|Celery. I always buy organic.|
|Raw Organic Sunflower Seeds. You can buy in bulk. I ground the Sunflower seeds with the Flax Seeds in the Vita-Mix before adding.|
|Organic Onion. Inexpensive when you buy in bags.|
|Red Peppers and Onion.|
|Hemp Seeds. I use Nutiva Brand usually and buy in bulk from Amazon. Zero shipping and use the "Subscribe and Save" Program.|
|Whole Flax Seeds. Also buy in bulk from co-op, online raw stores, or from the local health food stores.|
|Flax. You can use either dark or golden variety. I grind them in the Vita-Mix.|
|In KitchenAid Mixer. Takes a few seconds to mix.|
|In KitchenAid Mixer.|
|After water is added.|
|Hemp Burger. My uneven creation.|
|Wet Hemp Sunburger. You can make them nice and even if you are that kind of girl (or boy).|
|Wet, Undehydrated, Raw Vegan Hemp Sunburger. |
|I play messy though. Chunky, oddly shaped, messy girl.|
Above is the clip of Ani Phyo on Andrew Zimmern's show. This is a stretch for him because he isn't really a health conscious person! It's funny that it is on "Bizarre Foods" when it's just stuff that grows out of the ground like onions and celery. I always think of Fruit Loops as being more "bizarre". While not "Bizarre", I don't know that the Hemp SunBurger is the most "normal" food out of all of her dishes, but Kudos to her for sharing a "new" type of burger. I always think when something is named "Burger" that there may be an expectation that it is supposed to emulate a "beef" burger. These Hemp Sunburgers are really tasty on their own and my hubby loved them as well (but he doesn't eat beef burgers either). Click here for Raw Vegan Hemp SunBurger Recipe from Ani Phyo.
And a message from Dick Gregory:
Do you guys have Ani's books? Which recipes are your favorites? When you make "raw burgers" do you make the raw bread, mustard, mayo, the whole works or just the burger itself?
