During a brief summer respite in SW VA, Lowell and I explored Rocky Knob Gorge, an 11 mile hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hike was beautiful, hot, sticky, long, hilly, and lovely. It was amazing to be in complete wooded isolation for an entire day. We packed these beet&carrot burgers that were absolutely delicious:
1 shredded carrot, 1 shredded beet, 1 Tbl shredded ginger, 3 crushed garlic cloves, 1 beaten egg, 3/4 c breadcrumbs, 2 tsp coriander, 1 tsp cumin. Mix everything, form patties, and cook in some oil.
