ADVENTURE :: Star Gazing + Walnut Burger Tacos

“Dreams nourish the soul just as food nourishes the body. The pleasure of the search and of adventure feeds our dreams.” -Paulo Coelho We got away for a night of adventure camping under the stars this weekend.

It’s always amazing to enjoy a super tasty dinner beside the fire! Where are you craving to wander this...

RECIPE :: Walnut Burger, Gone Greek

There’s something about Mediterranean-style cuisine that can brighten your day. Maybe it’s the lemon, or the garlic, or the use of lots of fresh flavors.

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...
