I had my doubts as to whether or not I would like this, but I found a recipe for an:
Almond Flaxseed Burger

I have tried several recipes from his book, Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide and I have been surprisingly pleased. This was one that I peaked my curiosity.
This is fast and easy…from start to finish it only takes about 10 minutes to make this burger.
Add the following ingredients to a food processor:
2 cloves of garlic
1 cup of almonds
1/2 cup of ground flaxseed
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil or Hemp Oil
and Sea Salt to taste
Process until well blended and form into two patties.
Serve raw, or if you prefer to cook them, lightly cover with coconut oil and bake at 300 degrees for 35 minutes. You could also lightly fry over medium heat until golden brown.
I doubted that I would like this, but I really did. It was really flavorful! I paired this with a salad and ended up with a very nutritious meal. My kids turned their noses up to this, but my husband and I liked it. I will definitely make this again.
