Vegie Time: Collard Burgers


This was my vegie lunch today.  I buy as much organic as I can and typically only allow non-organic items that are on the clean-15 list.

It is important to buy collard greens that are organic since commercial farms use a lot of pesticides on them.

Wash the leaf and trim off the coarse stem.

Then I score the rib so I can bend it up and more easily trim some of the excess thickness.


Add the vegies that you want.  In this one, I have tomatoes, olives, and avocado here.  I also added organic humus.

067Then I added sprouts, greens, nutritional yeast, kelp, and some Himalayan salt.


Then I topped it with my no-oil salad dressing, which is made of organic mangoes (frozen from Costco), tomatoes, and fresh basil, blended with a little lemon juice.



You can eat it now as is if you want, or you can add some beans, or as I did in this case, a vegie burger.


Now tuck in one side and fold up like a taco.  Yum!


Enjoy!  I did!

    Was the veggie burger non-GMO? 🙂 There are some days I feel the need for a lot more fruits/veggies than I’ve eaten in a while, like when travelling. I just could not even eat the McD’s the others ate for breakfast yesterday. Juice and coffee were it. I was no worse for it.

    Recently, I tried a fruit/veggie-only fast for a day. I got so weak and headachey. Dawned on me, I totally was dehydrated.

    • I try to get everything non-GMO, but I think I was hungry when I bought these so didn’t even check. I probably won’t get these again because, though they were tasty, they have some oil.

    • I’m going to make my own.

        If you come up with a good veggie burger recipe, I may try it. 🙂 I enjoy meat, but finding good local meat is very difficult. I ate (non-GMO) soybeans for the first time yesterday and they weren’t all bad. I friend grows them every year and saves the seeds.

    “A” instead of “I friend…”

I would love to hear from you!
