National Veggie Burger Day

I know that I write a lot of food. What can I say, I love food!  Today is National Veggie Burger day, so here’s a recipe that Arnold would approve of.  And if Arnold approves, your kids are sure to approve too.
Veggie Burger:
  •  2 sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1/4 large yellow onion
  • ¼ cup almond meal
  • 2 T flaxseeds +3 T water
  • ½ t coconut oil
  • 1 T lemon juice


  • Cut up sweet potatoes into bite size pieces; Cook in pot over stovetop until potatoes are soft.
  • While potatoes are cooking, peel onion and slice in fourths.
  • Once potatoes are soft, place into food processor or high-power blender. Add onion and spinach and pulse.
  • After 30 seconds or so, turn off and add almond meal, flaxseed, water, oil, and juice.
  • Pulse until everything is combined.
  • From there, form mixture into balls, a bit larger than golf balls, and set on a baking try.
  • Use your hand or a spatula to flatten burgers, and place entire baking sheet into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, allowing the burgers to hold form.
  • After 30 minutes, heat a tiny bit of olive oil in a skillet and place burgers one at a time in the skillet, flipping over once they are golden brown.
