      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 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjJT1c2KFr8

      **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 
