Veggie Burger Success!

We figured it today. Oats are a must in veggie burgers as a binding agent...I am very happy with this recipe. Platanos are full of protein and very good for you...Just mix whatever veggies you have and make sure to add beets (raw) and add spices like cumin, cardamom, chili, salt, pepper...a little bit of honey...A trick Sutter thought me and it works great...
 
Latest additions to the team are Tom and Andreas..They are amazing. Tom is from Belgium and Andreas is half Swiss and half Sikkin..He looks like asian...Tom is the master chef, he figured to make fresh spring rolls after one try...They are helping me everyday, working more than I do with no breaks...I could not have asked for anything more...They are here only for two more weeks. It kills me that they will be leaving soon but I am just enjoying working with people who understand what I am trying to do and have ideas and are as excited as I am....
 
We made a 5 gallon lemonade, 2 trays of granola and they convinced me that I have to close one day a week....Monday it is....It is so hard not to think about the cafe...but I need to take time to get organized, to order stuff, do flyers, and go to the beach. I haven´t been to beach in the last month...It sucks!
