Recipe Directions

First, grind flax seeds in either a coffee grinder in small batches, or in a high-speed blender. Place everything in a food processor and blend until smooth. Place on teflex sheets in burger shapes and dehydrate about 12 hours, turning burgers 1/2 way through. Your burgers may take more or less time depending on the size.
For the cheese: I’m a real new-bie at raw cheese things so I blended 1/3 cup soaked pine nuts and 2/3 cups soaked almonds, a dash of tamari and 2 TBSP nutritional yeast (not raw as far as I know, sorry). Place in a blender and add a little bit of water, just enough to get it to blend. Dehydrate it on teflex sheets with the burgers so they are ready at the same time! Makes about 2 teflex sheets of cheese.
Serve with baby greens and sliced tomato.

Linda's Thoughts

Soooo, I was experimenting with mung bean sprouting techniques and to my delight, I was successful…very successful. I had 6 cups of 4” mung bean sprouts and not a clue of what to do with them except, of course, eat them as is. I decided to try a burger recipe, replacing the usual almonds or other nuts, with my mung bean sprouts. What I got was a nice, light burger. The picture shows baby greens, almond and pine nut cheese (see below), tomato, mung & carrot burger on Matt Amsden’s (RAWvolution) Famous Onion Bread. I love this bread because it turns out great every time! I left onion out of my burger recipe because I knew I would be using onion bread but you might want to add onion if you are using something different.

My pleasure. Here's a convenient US / Metric / UK conversion chart http://whatscookingamerica.net/Q-A/equiv.htm. For decimals just go to Google and type in something like ".125 to fraction" and it will give you the answer. You can also use Google and key in "convert 15 grams" (for example) and it will give you some equivalent options.

emtpdmom thank you once again for help. I hope I won't be bothering you with such silly things again. I've got measure cups and spoons at home but if any strange measure appears I feel helpless, especially if it concerns one of the main ingredients (unlike salt in this one of course:-) so anyway thanx once again!

.125 converts to 1/8. .25 would be 1/4.

Hi! Sorry for bothering but how much is .125 teaspoon salt? Is it 1/4 ? I'd be grateful for help since I'm a little bit confused.

I made mine w/ equal parts carrot, sprouts and celery root (celeriac) and subbed flax oil for the olive oil -- worked great!

This was the first garden burger I'd ever tried. I was surprised - I really liked it! I'll be making it again soon. Thanks for posting the recipe.

Oops, sorry about blank post. I found the biggest tricks in sprouting mung beans are to keep them in the dark as much as possible or the leaves turn green and they taste bitter. Also, you need to place a lot of weight on top of them. It seems as though you will squish the little beans but the more weight they have to grow against, the thicker their stems will be.
Cheers,
Linda
