Try these delicious basket sliders for your next party! We made veggie patties from lentils and quinoa and of course we used fresh nut butter made with the NutraMilk which really helps to hold everything together and give it a good consistency. Not to mention that it adds more protein and flavor.  Along with this creamy maple mustard spread made with cashew butter -It´s a perfect party dish!
