New Moon's "Feed Me!" Recipes

Click here to download a copy of all the recipes from our March/April 2007 issue, "Feed Me!"

In one of the feature articles, “What’s on YOUR Plate?”, 11-year-old Clara of Kansas explains why she prefers to eat organic foods. Clara also sent us her favorite organic recipe for Pocket Burgers. Try it yourself!

Pocket Burgers

Remember to get permission from an adult before using the stove or oven.

You'll need:
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Package veggie crumbles (I recommend Light Life Smart Ground, available at natural foods stores)
1/4 to 1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon each of onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepr
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 heaping Tablespoons yellow mustard
2 heaping Tablespoons sweet pickle relish
4 or more slices of cheddar cheese
4 or more whole wheat hamburger buns

Heat oil in a skillet. Cook the veggie crumbles over medium-low heat until lightly browned. Add water, spices, Worcestershire, mustard, and relish. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes. Spoon onto buns, top with cheese.

Clara says, "These veggie burgers go great with oven-baked fries. To make the fries, cut up two or three russet potatoes, toss with 2-3 Tablespoons of olive oil, and bake for 30-40 minutes at 375 degrees. Turn the fries halfway through, and sprinkle with salt at the end. Enjoy!"
