February Potluck

This month's theme is heart healthy. Each recipe was made with ingredients that are heart healthy. We had tomatoes, a rainbow of vegetables, mushrooms, nuts, omega 3's seeds, cruciferous vegetables, antioxidants, chocolate, legumes, and hibiscus tea.
Next month will be a Mediterranean feast.

Raw Tomato Soup We used hemp seeds instead of cashews due to members having nut allergies.

Sun Burgers with a mushroom gravy
From The Complete Book of Raw Food by Julie Rodwel
Page 275
Serves 6
6 tablespoons flax seeds, ground in electric coffee grinder
¾ cup water
2 cups sunflower seeds, ground in electric coffee grinder
2 cups carrot pulp (I diced 3 large carrots)
1 cup finely minced celery
¾ cup finely minced onion
4 tablespoons finely minced parsley
4 tablespoons finely minced red pepper
1 tablespoon tamari, nama shoyu, or Braggs Liquid Amino
Cabbage leaves (for buns)
Mushroom Gravy (see below)
Make the carrot pulp by juicing carrots in a heavy-duty juicer.
In a blender, blend the ground flax seeds and water.  Pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside.  Immediately rinse the blender container before mixture thickens.
In a medium size bowl, thoroughly stire together the carrot pulp, ground sunflower seeds, celery, onion, parsley, red pepper, and tamari.  Add the flaxseed mixture and mix thoroughly.  Add more water if necessary for burger consistency.
Form the mixture into six ½ inch-thick patties.  Dehydrate the patties for 4 to 8 hours or leave in the sun until warm.  Serve in a leafy cabbage bun or make balls rather than burgers and serve with tomato sauce or Mushroom Gravy on the side.
Tip:  To ensure equal sized burgers, first make 6 balls of equal size, then flatten into burgers.
