I found out that there was this hip new raw restaurant that just opened in Tucson. Have you heard about it? It’s supposed to be a very cool place to hang out, with a charming and inviting decor, free Wi-Fi, and oh the chef is right there behind a glass wall so you can watch her every move.
On Tuesday nights the chef comes out and prepares your raw meal right at your table. All the while she shares with you all about the benefits of eating raw foods and how good it is for your body .
The chef, so I heard, is a wizard with gourmet raw cuisine. I got all his info off of The Oprah Show where she was the special guest. Then flipped the channel and wouldn’t you know it Martha Stewart was working right along this very same chef, she was showing the audience how to make a raw gourmet cheesecake! Martha was even dangling a piece of Irish moss in front of the camera! Wow, had raw foods really become mainstream?
I have been to several “raw” food restaurants and sometimes the food is just to “foo-foo” to enjoy. I want comfort food, I want food that takes me back to my childhood days when I didn’t even know what phyto-nutrients where or that I needed to care about my colon. Anyway, I have heard great things about this place. It is owned by the chef and her husband who is a real crack-up. I can’t wait to check it out. I will definitely keep you posted.
“Wake up Amie Sue, wake up.” What….huh….did I nod off ? Oh shoot, you mean to tell me that was all a dream?! Well fiddle sticks. I guess until that dream becomes a reality :), I will share my new recipe for a Raw Nutless Veggie Burger….did I have any of your fooled? Not even for a tiny little bit? hehe
Yields 5 (1/2 cup patties) + 1 slider size
Break the carrots down to a small shred.
Add the remaining ingredients and pulse together.
You can make your burgers chuncky for a “meaty” mouth-feel or
process it to more of a paste-like texture. Both ways are great.
Form the patties.
