3-4 tablespoons basil pesto
1 cup chopped fresh spinach leaves
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons Pink Himalayan or sea salt
1/2 cup flax meal
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

1 cup drained roasted red peppers from jar or freshly roasted
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 large garlic clove, peeled
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Very finely chop almonds in processor. Add roasted peppers, vinegar, and garlic; process to coarse puree. With machine running, pour olive oil through feed tube and process until puree thickens slightly. Move Sauce to a bowl and salt to taste.
Plate burger on a bed or arugula or mixed greens and top with red pepper sauce and tomatoes
