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.
Then 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!
It looked so good, I could almost taste it.
It is a very yummy way to eat without a lot of fat. Gotta get my vegies in!
That looks really good and really healthy!
A better alternative to junk food, for sure!
I love vegie burgers! This one looks delightful.
It was yummy!
This sounds and looks sooooo delicious! Kudos Lilly. You are an inspiration.
They are yummy and strong enough to hold all sorts of fillings.
That looks and sounds really yummy and nutritious. Thanks for the inspiration!
You’re welcome. It is my latest mania.
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 used to have a vegie pattie recipe I used years ago. I will check that out again. I want one that contains no oils or eggs. I’ll let you know.
I found one on a search that has no oil in the “meat” itself, but it is used for cooking. Do you have a method of cooking that would prevent them from sticking?
It was interesting to see no soy in it as I thought all veggie burgers would use that as a base.
I use veg broth or water a lot instead of oil.
Looks good. I will have to try it, though I’m not sure what binds it together well.
