I’ve made Raw Cheeseburgers 3 times now at the Farm of Life…and every time I receive RAVE reviews with pleads to post the recipes. Because there are a LOT to post, that’s why this week’s theme is dedicated to sharing how you, too, can create a burger feast for your friends and family. :) Trust me, it’s worth the effort and you’ll find that a high-raw vegan diet is the perfect prescription for body, mind, and soul to shine.

So…today we’re learning how to make Raw Pickles. These take a couple of days to make, so that’s why we’re starting off with these first. I love the added crunch, zest, and flavor it gives a raw burger. Pic credit: Rawmazing
