Okay - I apologize that the pictures are blurry. Can't redo them at this point.
I started with soaking regular mushrooms in Braggs Amino, olive oil and fresh rosemary from my garden. They soaked overnight. Then I put them through my food processor.

I soaked 1 cup of macadamia nuts and 1 cup of walnuts and 1 cup of sunflower seeds
together for a couple of hours. Then put them through the
food processor.

I chopped in my food processor - 4 stalks of celery, garlic, onion and bell pepper.

I mixed the mushroom mush, the processed soaked nuts and the veggies all together
by hand. Then I formed them into "hamburger" patties on my Teflex trays.

Here is my 80 yr old mother, Betty, enjoying a healthy "Hamburger" and her favorite salad
with romaine, red bell peppers, pinenuts, hemp seeds and avocado. I made a homemade
Caesar Dressing with olive oil, nuts and lemon juice. Notice she is almost
finished with her glass of fresh GRAPE JUICE that I made a couple
of days ago. MMMm good.
She told me... "I can't believe this tastes so good."
Can I come back tomorrow for your pizza?"
"Sure, Mom. See you at 5:30!"

Really enjoy the blog. Are all your food items organic or conventional? Plus, roughly how much is your food cost per week?

What was the ratio for the mushroom mixture? I think that I would like to make this.

I try to get as much organic as I can.
I get a food allowance of $120.00 a week for the 5 of us.

The ratio of marinated mushrooms to the nut mixture was about 4 cups of nuts to 2 cups of mushrooms.

i didn't buy buns. I got the Ekekiel sprouted bread. We love using these
since they are cooked at such a low temperature (Ekekiel makes that claim themselves).

I saw it mentioned on a 'health forum' I check once in awhile. Intrigued by your 'name', I decided to check it out! Internet truly is a great thing...
I, too, have five girls (mine are all single - 15-23) sandwiched between 2 boys - (25 & 12). Only
4 kids at home now. I'm not too good at 'all raw' - my hubbie's a meat and potato guy -- but I'm improving! At any rate, I haven't eaten meat nor dairy for many months. We're American, but have been here in France for about 22-years. Again, thanks for your blog!!
Take care,
