RECIPE :: Roasted Veg Salad

RECIPE :: Roasted Veg Salad

Often life’s never-ending  busyness is a blur, and when you finally get home to cook dinner, it seems daunting. One of our favorite perks of the Walnut Burger is how easy and versatile it is to cook.  Last night — when getting home after a local beach cleanup, we whipped this recipe up with random ingredients from our kitchen. Healthy, satisfying and simple :: a few of our favorite things! Ingredients: (makes 2 full-size salads) Mixed greens 2-3 Walnut Burgers 6 Baby zucchini  (ends removed, and sliced in half lengthwise) Frozen or fresh corn Garlic salt Paprika Black pepper Shredded carrots 8 Black olives (halved) 1/2 Avocado (diced) Goat cheese Olive oil Balsamic vinegar Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place zucchini and corn on a lightly olive-oiled cookie sheet, dust with a bit of garlic salt, paprika, and black pepper, and place in the oven for 20-30 minutes — until veggies are golden brown. Add a bit of coconut oil to a nonstick saucepan and add Walnut Burgers – cook until the crumbles are browned with a little crispiness on the outside edges. Next, build the salad :: greens, carrots, avocado, olives, goat cheese, roasted corn, zucchini and Walnut Burger crumbles. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic to finish. And you’ve got a protein-packed quick and healthy dinner! photo by Drew...

RECIPE :: Loaded Sweet Potato Fries

Inspired by the poutines of our Canadian neighbors to the north and the carne asada fries of our southwestern states, we’ve created a new meatless favorite :: Loaded Sweet Potato Fries :: with Walnut Burger of course! Perfect for a party or for a simple and satisfying dinner, these fries will knock your socks off. Ingredients: (makes 3-4 servings) 2 large sweet potatoes (cut into french fry-like strips) Olive Oil Sea Salt & Pepper Garlic Powder Paprika 2 Walnut Burger patties 1 Jalapeño (seeds removed and diced) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Then, toss cut fries with some 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and a dusting of paprika and garlic powder. Place on 2 cookie sheets, and place in the oven to bake. Check on them every 10 minutes to flip and rotate them. While the fries bake, place a bit of coconut oil in a saucepan and add 2 Walnut Burgers – cook until the crumbles are browned with a little crispiness on the outside edges. When the fries are crispy (about 30-40 minutes), remove from oven and stack on plates. Top with the Walnut Burger crumbles and jalapeño. Serve with your favorite spicy mayo or tahini sauce. photo by Drew...
RECIPE :: Walnut Burger Breakfast Stack

RECIPE :: Walnut Burger Breakfast Stack

How did you start your #MeatlessMonday? For us, it was with a little twist on the typical breakfast sandwich. Basically, we dig Walnut Burgers so much, we ditched the muffin / bread and shifted our Walnut Burger to the outside of our morning sandwich…(which means we got 2 of them in our morning stack)! Ingredients: 1 package of Walnut Burgers (thawed, cut in half and re-pattied) 1 avocado (sliced) 2-4 eggs 2 tablespoons of green salsa Srirachi First, cut each thawed Walnut Burger in half, and repatty them. Then, place them on top of a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. While the burgers bake, heat a bit of coconut oil in a saucepan and add 1 egg. As the egg starts to cook, add a quarter cup of water and a couple tablespoons of green salsa to the white part of the frying egg. Watch until yolk is how you like it, and then remove from pan. Repeat with as many eggs as desired. To build the sandwiches, place 1 Walnut Burger patty down, top with 1 egg, another Walnut Burger patty, and then avocado and a drizzle of Srirachi. Mmmm good. photo by...
