This recipe is an amazing winter treat for all those burger lovers out there who miss a warm, delicious sandwich. It is simple to make, has great flavor and texture and can be eaten with veggies or between two slices of raw bread.
Mushrooms are fleshy, nutrient dense and low in calories, making these burgers a great option for people who are watching their weight. Moreover, mushrooms contain more vitamin D than any other vegetable, and are a great addition to the diet during winter days.
Mushrooms offer a wide range of nutrients, including essential amino acids, vitamin B, as well as minerals like copper, iron, selenium, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus. They also contain a special amino acid called ergothioneine, which is found only in mushrooms and yeasts and that functions as strong antioxidant.
The sunflower seeds are added both for their fiber, protein and essential fats, as well as for their texture and taste. I often add sunflower or pumpkin seeds to my raw vegan recipes, as I find it much easier to incorporate them in my main meals than eat them as they are.

So I got some big Portobello Mushrooms marked down at the store although I had no idea what to use them for but I made something up out of nowhere and here is what I got so yummy! Thats the thing with raw food I can have so much fun and it'll most likely always taste good, and it will make me feel good too!
Tikka Masala is an Indian dish usually made with Chicken, as well as some combination of creams and tomato sauce. I realized this old favorite would be an easy dish to re-create raw. It includes several optimizations that can be foregone to save time and effort. The quickest version of this recipe can be made with two cups of coconut milk, no almond milk, and no irish moss. I recommend going all the way if you want to imitate its namesake - it will still be quick and easy.
