Hidden Manna Patties
I consider food prepared with the quintessential fatty acid omega-6; hidden manna. Way back in the 1950s, Johanna Budwig found that in studying blood samples from people with cancer, diabetes, and liver disease they consistently lacked omega-6 essential fatty acids. The hemp hearts, walnuts, and sesame seeds are all high in omega-6. Then when you top them off with a tablespoon of hemp seed oil soaked with crushed garlic you have not only the tastiest patties alive but the healthiest.
½ cup chopped portobello mushrooms
½ cup chopped walnuts
½ cup chopped shallots
½ cup of quinoa (pressure cooked)
3 chopped serrano peppers
3 tablespoons hemp hearts
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
¾ tablespoon salt
Mix all ingredients well in a big bowel. Fry as small patties in hemp seed oil over low heat (preferably below 200 degrees). Makes 12 patties.
Mix a tablespoon of hemp seed oil with crushed garlic. Let it sit 15 minutes to activate the allicin. You can also add balsamic vinegar or other herbs to if you like.
