As vegetarians(or not), we need to add protein to our bodies. The following recipe is "pumped" with plant-based proteins from beans, seeds and oats. As a vegetarian, this is one of my to go recipes when I want a burger (you don't need to be vegetarian in order to savor this baby!). At The Real Food Academy, we have also made this recipe with hundreds of kids and just after we got their seal of approval (kids can be harsh recipe judges) we decided on going public with it! TIP: Serve it with our Sweet and Tangy Coleslaw with Apples
and top it with avocado slices and sprouts. Next time you have a gathering your guest will be impressed with your new plant-based burger!
I was so exited when I found this recipe of vegan Mac and Cheese. However, the recipe called for cashews. I decide to change it up and use sunflower seeds instead. I didn't want exclude any student on our cooking class because of a nut allergy. It turned out to be AMAZING! They all absolutely loved it! Parents were amazed to see their kids having second servings! This is definitely a hit!
Fun to make, this easy recipe can be made ahead of time and reserved in the refrigerator for later cooking. It can be made gluten and nut free. Serve with our Raw Ketchup, some fresh greens and vegan cheese. For a twist you can also add sprouts, caramelized sweet onions, mushrooms, avocado or raw Thai slaw!
