Garnish with Teriyaki Almonds
1. Preheat oven to 180° (if baking). In a large skillet, sauté onions and garlic in 1/2 tbsp oil. Mix your flax egg together in a small bowl and set aside for at least 10 mins while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
2. Place all ingredients (except spices and salt) into a large mixing bowl and stir very well. Now, add seasonings and salt to taste.
3. With slightly wet hands, shape dough into patties. Pack dough tightly as this will help it stick together. I made 8 medium patties.
4. Cooking methods: You can fry the burgers in a bit of oil on a skillet over medium heat for about 5 minutes on each side. If baking in the oven, bake for 25-30 mins (15-17 minutes on each side) at 180°, until golden and crisp.
In a bowl, mush all the avocado meat and add in all the other ingredients and mix. Lay out each cucumber slice and layer a coat of the avocado spread all the way across. Start to roll on one side until you reach the end. Be sure to have some avocado spread at the end (without any capers) to act like glue to seal them up at the end.
Dress up with extra parsley and capers and serve!
(In the heat of the summer, be sure that the avocado doesn’t tolerate the heat well, so be mindful of that and serve these as appetizers so they’re eaten up quick or keep them in the fridge until serving time.)
Start by wash, peel and grate the raw beetroots. Add all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Taste and add some more mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper if needed. Eat immediately or store in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
This brilliant puree dramatically elevates the humble beetroot. It's simple and cheap to make, too. Use as a dip with warm blinis, cubes of sourdough rye bread, or any good raw seed cracker.
1) Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Scrub the beetroot really well, then place in a roasting tin or ovenproof dish. Cover and bake for between 45 minutes and 1 hour, or until tender. Leave to cool.
2) Tip the walnuts on to a tray and toast for 5-8 minutes, or until just golden. Tip on to a plate and leave to cool.
3) Finely chop the prunes and place them in a small bowl. Soak for about 30 minutes in warm water.
4) Squeeze the juice from the lemon, add to half the walnuts and finely grind in a food processor. Crumble or finely chop the remaining walnuts.
5) When the beetroot is cool enough to handle, peel and chop roughly, then tip into the bowl of the food processor. Peel and crush the garlic. Add this to the beetroot, along with the soaked prunes, and whizz until the beetroot is very finely chopped, but not quite pureed. Scrape the beetroot into a bowl, season with salt, pepper and about 2 tbsp lemon juice, adding more to taste.
Crostini means “little toasts” in Italian and are made by slicing bread thinly, then toasting or grilling it to make it crispy. Drizzle with olive oil and salt or serve with your favorit toppings. The buckwheat gives this recipe a lighter, crispier texture.
Soak the buckwheat groats overnight and rinse thoroughly.
Put into high-speed blender, add the celery, flax meal and water. Blend until smooth and add the olives last: pulse lightly to mix into batter. Continue as on base recipe to spread on dehydrator sheet and continue as in base recipe above.
Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth and creamy. Optionally can be used to dip veggies or on a cracker.
Julienne the veggies, cut avocado into slices and take coriander leaves from stems.
In each rice paper, lay out one large piece of romaine first then place the julienned veggies etc. and roll up to a hand roll.
