Portobello Burger, Warm Mash No-tatoes & Onion Straws

Portobello Burger

Delicious almond/ buckwheat hamburger bun, served with a tart Cream sauce and topped with Heirloom Tomatoes, Onions Straws and Alfalfa Sprouts.


Portobello Steaks

Portobello(s) were marinated in Fresh Lemon juice, minced garlic, Nama shoyu and cold pressed olive oil for one hour. After marinating they were transferred to the dehydrator for 6 hours. I checked them every couple of hours and applied more marinate to keep them moist and evenly flavored.


Onion Straws

Massage 5 Onions in Date Paste, Nama Shoyu & Olive Oil. Dehydrate on texflex sheet for 24 hours, remove and transfer to mesh sheet dehydrating for another 12 hours.


Warm Mash No-tatoes

In a food processor, blend Parsnips, Jicama, fresh Garlic, Olive Oil, Nutritional Yeast, Water, Salt and Pepper. Once you achieve the consistency you’d like transfer to a glass bowl and place on the bottom shelf of the dehydrator to warm.

 

Hamburger Bun

Blend together Zucchini, Olive Oil, Garlic, Red Miso, Flax Meal, Almond Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Fresh Lemon Juice, Nutritional Yeast, Fresh Rosemary, Coriander, White Pepper, Sea Salt & Pepper.

Most of the raw hamburger/ sandwich buns we’ve had have been like little hockey pucks or terribly bland in flavor. These are so flavorful, moist and easy to bite down on. I opted to keep the skins on the Zucchini to so that I didn’t waste any of the vitamins, you could leave off which would give the bun a more golden appearance.


Onion Straws & Plating

You could really have some fun with the Onion Straws by creating some great visuals for plating.

For those parents out there, kids love these tasty onion treats and think they are onion rings! Great way to get your toddler or kids to eat these awesome cancer fighting foods.


So good they don’t know its health food!

I have never been able to get the kids to eat mushrooms. No matter how clever I am at  hiding them in a dish, my daughter finds every one and picks them out. These steaks were so flavorful that she didn’t even give it a second thought and ate it all. My Son had two helpings of the potatoes and my husband stated it was the best meal ever!


Have fun with this dish and be sure to share it with your love ones!

Enjoy!

Our search for local springs

In using the site http://www.findaspring.com I was able to locate a handful of local springs with in 20 miles of Portland. SO our quest continues to find a good, clean natural water source.

Yep, the search continues… to be continued.
