I got to host my first event at the new house this weekend: a Wildtree Tasting! If you know me or my mom, you've probably heard about Wildtree or have been to a tasting before and know how DELICIOUS the food is. BUT If you don't know, Wildtree is an all-natural pantry foods company that also now offers organic options. Basically, for all those seasonings and hamburger helper meals and taco seasonings you use that have all those chemicals that you can't even pronounce, Wildtree has a healthy alternative where you can actually read whats inside.
For example, that delicious Spinach Artichoke dip that you get at TGIFriday's. Yes, it's delicious. But have you ever read the ingredients on the box? You can't even pronounce them. Well, the Wildtree version literally has: lemon, garlic, spinach, artichoke. That's it. So you know exactly what you're putting in your body.
AND IT'S DELICIOUS.
These are the products we got for the tasting to use.
I went to the farmer's market that morning for some fresh veggies! (and the grocery store, too!)
And of course, we can't forget the grapeseed oil and dipping sauce trays, accompanied by the Beer Batter Bread.
We made a burger trio for the tasting and they were AMAZING.
Step 1 was mixing them together. I actually ended up using ground chicken instead of turkey. You could also use beef. (Shown here is the Mediterranean Burger)
Step 2 is rounding them into patties, whatever size you want. I made mine small so that people could taste more than one. (Shown here in the front is the Rodeo Burger and in the back is the Mediterranean Burger).
Step 3 is cooking and presentation! (Shown from left to right: Mediterranean Chicken Burger, Rodeo Beef Burger, and Southwest Chicken Burger).
And the veggie tray with Spicy Chipotle Ranch Dip.
