Vegan Pesto recipe
Spice Up Your Life recipe
Cheeseless Cheese Fries:
Follow Spice Up Your life Sauce recipe
This made about 15 small, thin patties. As always, these are estimated amounts.
I suck at measuring, what can I say?
If you don't already have Juice Pulp Crackers made, these can take up to 2 hours. Check out the recipe for those here.
1. Cut sweet potatoes into strips, and roast in oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Potatoes for patties should be spiced with salt and smoked paprika. Follow recipe below for fries. This can take about 40 minutes. I already had left over roasted potatoes, so I used leftovers for the patties, and fresh ones for the fries. Add about 1 C of roasted, soft sweet potatoes to blender/food processor.
2. On stove, fry up 1/4 of white onion (or more if you like stronger onion flavor) and 2 large cloves of garlic with a bit of olive oil. Once brown, bring to simmer to keep warm.
3. Grate about 3/4 large carrot with cheese grater. Add grated carrots and 1 1/2 C of spinach to blender.
4. Add 1 can of black beans (or equivalent amount of black beans not canned) to bender.
5. Include about 1/4 C of flax seed meal (this will help bind the mixture) to blender.
6. Add hemp seeds to your liking, and 1 heaping tablespoon of YouSuperFoods Skinny Protien and Super Green blends.
7. Add warm onions and garlic to blender.
8. Include a 2 tablespoons of Vegan Pesto to blender.
9. Blend until sticky. If it's not sticky enough, then add more flax seed meal.
10. I made small patties to ensure they cooked all the way through. Scoop with tablespoon onto fry pan with only a small amount of olive oil. Cook to your liking.
1. As mentioned above, cut sweet potatoes into strips and roast in oven with olive oil. Spice with salt and nutritional yeast. The nutritional yeast gives the fries a cheesy flavor, so add to your liking.
2. Roast can take around 40 minutes. Check after 30.
3. Dip with Spice Up Your Life Sauce.
Putting Burger Together:
As mentioned above, this is totally up to you in terms of what you want to top your's with. I did a few different flavors that I'll list below.
1. Spread Juice Pulp Cracker with dip of your choice. On separate crackers, I used the recipes for Hummus, Vegan Pesto and Spice Up Your Life.
2. Add patty on top of cracker and spread. Option to add another, or the same, kind of spread again onto patty.
3. On patty I added tomato, avocado, spinach and sprouts. On another one, I used sauerkraut.
4. Other great options here are pickles, vegan cheese, and anything else you like to deck your burger out with!
Nuts of your choice (raw)
Nut butter of your choice (no sugar)
Bunch of overripe bananas
Organic shredded, dried coconut (no additives)
Organic Hemp Hearts
Your Super Foods "Chocolate Lover" blend
Dried fruit of your choice
Organic Honey (non-vegan) as sweetener
Organic Maple Syrup (vegan) as sweetener
Additional seeds of your choice
Surprise, surprise, I didn't measure anything. So this is very estimated.
1. Add one full bag of pitted dates to a bowl with as much nut butter and chopped, raw nuts of your choice. Add hemp seeds and/or any other seeds that you like. If you like to have a nutty flavor, use equal or more nuts and seeds to dates. If you prefer for it to be sweeter, then use more dates.
2. On stove, heat up cacao nibs with a touch of water. Mix in Your Superfoods "Chocolate Lover" blend (or another super food blend of your choice). Keep on medium heat until cacao nibs soften and melt. I like to keep mine chunky, rather than a smooth runny consistency. I find that heating them up brings out more flavor.
3. Blend bunch of overripe bananas until completely liquid. Keep in separate bowl.
4. Once cacao is to your liking, add to the date and nut mixture. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamon to your liking. Blend altogether until one solid, sticky concoction.
5. Use hands to make balls out of sticky mixture, and put on plate to cool if they're warm from the cacao.
6. Spread coconut flakes on a large plate or cutting board.
7. Once cool, roll balls in the banana mixture so there's a thin coating on the outside. The more banana you use, the sweeter it will be.
8. After coating the ball with banana, then gentle roll over coconut flakes until the ball is covered.
9. Place onto plate once dusted in coconut, and refrigerate to speed up the binding process.
10. After about 30 minutes in the fridge, they're ready to eat!
I used these measurements for 3 people, and had a TON of leftovers- making it good for about 5 - 6 people, instead.
I chose a black rice, gluten free pasta for more protein.
However, the kind of pasta is totally up to you!
-2 smallish golden, white potatoes
-1 sweet potato
-3 regular-sized carrots
-2 regular-sized lemons
-Unsweetened almond milk
1. Boil potatoes and carrots until soft.
2. While they're still hot, add white potatoes, sweet potato and carrots to blender.
*I used 1/2 of the sweet potato, because mine was huge. The more you add, the sweeter it'll be. I'd suggest starting with just a bit, and then adding as you like it once you blend.
3. Add 1 Cup of nutritional yeast.
*I like the strong flavor of the nutritional yeast, so I actually used closer to 2 cups. Most people liken it to the taste of parmasan cheese in the sense it's quite sharp- so add accordingly.
4. Add 1 teaspoon turmeric and about 1/2 Cup of unsweetened almond milk.
*Turmeric is a really strong flavor. If you know prefer less intensity and/or spice, then use less turmeric. The almond milk will neutralize the kick of the turmeric, so if you want that more mild, milky taste- add more.
5. Blend until creamy.
*I went salt-free on this one, but if you want a little more flavor- add salt and pepper to your liking.
6. Cook pasta to whichever degree you prefer, and add cheese sauce to the pasta. Mix together until all pasta is coated. It's easier to do when the "cheese" is hot. To heat it up quickly, you can add hot water- or heat on stove.
7. Just one more thing- I like to have greens with every meal, so we actually served with broccoli and it was delish!
