RECIPE :: Winter Wild Rice with Walnut Burger

With a bite in the air and the holidays on the horizon, warm comforting foods are on the menu. For the first time, we put Walnut Burger and wild rice on the same plate, and to say the least: we were pleased. Fresh yet savory, we’re excited to share with you our newest creation, straight from the Walnut Burger kitchen. Ingredients: 1 cup wild rice 2 cloves garlic (diced) 1/4 red onion (diced) 2 sprigs fresh rosemary (cut into small pieces) 1/4 red pepper (diced) 1/4 orange pepper (diced) 1/4 yellow pepper (diced) 10 stalks of asparagus (sliced into 1 in pieces) 2 tablespoons olive oil 3 Walnut Burger patties (crumbled and browned; I used a bit of olive oil in the pan first) First, rinse 1 cup of wild rice. Place in a pot on the stovetop with 1 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil; then cover with a lid and reduce to a simmer. Cook the rice for about 40 minutes. In a saucepan, heat 1-2 tablespoons olive oil and add the garlic, onion and rosemary; season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Cook until fragrant and the onions transparent. Then, add the peppers and asparagus, cooking until the asparagus becomes tender to your liking. Next, fork the rice and add it to the saucepan with the vegetables. Cook for a few more minutes so the flavors can meld. Then, plate the rice mixture and top with the Walnut Burger crumbles. Pairs nicely with a seasonal candle and a glass of red...
RECIPE :: Spaghetti Squash Pasta

RECIPE :: Spaghetti Squash Pasta

The season of shellacked vegetables and decorative gourds has arrived. When that crispy cool air blows in, all we crave are warm comfort-style foods. This recipe puts a healthy spin on a traditional pasta marinara, without sacrificing those savory, satisfying flavors. Ingredients: 1 spaghetti squash 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 clove garlic (diced) 3 Walnut Burger patties (crumbled and browned) 1 cup of your favorite marinara sauce 1/2 cup fresh spinach Parmesan cheese, for garnish Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Half the spaghetti squash lengthwise, and clean out the seeds. Then, place the halves, skin down, on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, to soften and roast the inside a bit. Next, remove the squash from the oven. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; add the garlic and cook until fragrant. Then, remove the squash from the skin and add to the saucepan. Cook, for a few minutes, stirring to help meld the flavors together. Then, add about 1/4 cup of water to the saucepan and cover with a lid to allow the squash to steam for about 10-15 minutes. While the squash is cooking, in another saucepan, crumble 3 Walnut Burger patties and cook until browned. Taste the squash to ensure it is soft enough to your liking. Then, stir in the fresh spinach and marinara sauce. Once the spinach is wilted and the sauce warm, it’s time to plate. We used the empty squash half as a bowl for fun. Fill with the spaghetti squash, top with Walnut Burger crumbles and freshly grated parmesan, and...
