Gluten-Free Spinach Garlic Tofu Burgers
16 ounces frozen spinach (organic), thawed
15 ounces firm tofu
3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats

salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup coconut oil
Optional: dash of Bragg Liquid Amino
1. Crumble tofu, and mix all ingredients together in bowl. Allow to sit a few minutes so oats can absorb some of the liquid from the spinach.

3. Make patties with your hands and fry with a little coconut oil. Cook for 6-10 minutes on each side, turning carefully. Serve with a nice big salad!

Alkaline Recipe #74: Raw Avocado and Tomato Soup
If you are a fan of raw soups like the Spanish Gazpacho you will love this delicious raw avocado soup with tomatoes and fresh spinach!
Avocados are incredibly healthy and alkalising and provide our bodies with six times more energy than sugar and proteins. They are rich in potassium, B vitamins, as well as vitamin E and vitamin K.
The avocados combined with the other highly alkalising vegetables like spinach and tomatoes make this soup very tasty and refreshing.Alkaline Diet Recipe #83: Kale Chickpea Mash
Have you ever thought about making a delicious mash without using potatoes and making it a bit more interesting?
This recipe is absolutely delicious and uses very healthy and highly alkaline ingredients like kale, garlic and chickpeas.
This mash has got an abundance of different flavours given by the thyme and shallots.
You can serve this as a main course or as a side dish with fresh fish.
Kale Chickpea Mash
Serves 2 as a main dish
Serves 4 as a side dish
3 tbsp garlic, cut into small pieces
1 shallot, cut into small pieces
1 bunch kale
400g fresh chickpeas (cooked per instructions)
2 tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos (alternative: soy sauce)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
1/2 tsp of fresh or dried thyme
Celtic sea salt or Himalayan crystal salt, to taste
Gently fry the shallot and minced garlic in olive oil on medium-high heat until it turns golden brown. Be careful not to burn it, as the garlic becomes bitter tasting otherwise.
Add the washed and drained kale and stir in the oil, onion and garlic. After the kale has wilted a bit, add the chick peas and cook for about 6 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and stir. Begin mashing the chickpeas with a fork. You can mash them as fine as you like your mash to be.
Alkaline Diet Recipe #111: Spelt Pasta with Broccoli and Almonds
It is nice to have an alkaline pasta dish for a change, as this recipe contains spelt pasta, which are fine to be included into an alkaline based diet. The other main ingredients are broccoli and almonds, which are both highly alkaline and tasty too!
This dish is also really easy and quick to prepare, which makes this another great recipe to cook throughout the week when there is limited time to spend in the kitchen.
Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated grains. It is high in fibre, has a higher content of protein and vitamins than wheat and although not gluten free, Spelt can be tolerated by some people with wheat allergies.
Broccoli is high in vitamin C and dietary fiber. It also contains multiple nutrients with potent anti-cancer properties. Almonds contain high levels of manganese, Vitamin E and magnesium.
We hope you enjoy this tasty alkaline spelt pasta dish.
Spelt Pasta with Broccoli and Almonds
250g Spelt Pasta
150g Almond flakes
2 Garlic cloves, cut into fine pieces
2 tbsp rapeseed or grapeseed oil
Himalayan Crystal Salt or Celtic Sea Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Bring a large pot with water to boil. Cook the pasta until tender, but make sure they are still ‘al dente’. Wash and drain the broccoli and cut the florets into small pieces. Gently heat the oil in a large frying pan and add the garlic pieces. Quickly fry them, but make sure they do not become too golden, as they will taste bitter otherwise. Add the broccoli and fry with the garlic.
Add a little bit of water and cook until the broccoli becomes tender. Add a little bit more water in the meantime.
In the meantime roast the almond flakes in a different frying pan at medium heat without adding any oil. As soon as the broccoli is tender stir in the pasta. Mix everything well.
Add the almond flakes and season to taste with salt and pepper.
