    Coconut Oil for cooking burgers


    To coat patties:
    1/4 cup pecorino/Romano cheese/ or dairy free Vegan Parma
    1/2 cups fresh ground toasted pepitas & sunflower seeds **
    Mix and place in a shallow dish.

    Preheat pan on medium heat.
    In a large bowl, combine all patty ingredients and mix well.  Once ingredients are incorporated, form mixture into 3-inch patties, or as you would for hamburgers.  Dip patties into cheese/nut coating mixture on both sides.

    When pan is hot, add enough coconut oil to coat pan 1/4″.   Brown patties for approximately 7-10 minutes per side or until brown and crisp. Store extra patties in small batches in freezer bags.  Makes great snack or quick lunch, or served on a bed of lettuce or in a taco.

    Top with sliced avocados, red pepper hummus and sprinkled with fresh chopped cilantro.


    *To caramelize peppers and onions see video below.

    **Purchase raw nuts and seeds and toast them in a dry heated pan. Add a little sea salt and heat until brown on both sides.  Watch carefully as they can burn easily.  Make enough for this recipe plus a little more for snacking. They are delicious!

    Note: Pepita seeds are pumpkin seeds by another name.
