Burgers the Raw Food Way!

by Susan on May 2, 2010

I have been wanting to make a raw food burger for quite a while now. Finding a great deal on portobello mushrooms was just the dose of inspiration that I needed to put this recipe together. Filled with veggies, seeds and nuts, and hearty savory seasoning, these mushroom burgers completely hit the spot. A little soaking, a little dehydrating and you have a tasty burger that even the fussiest eater will love. If you use the food processor, these go together very quickly!

Mushroom Walnut Veggie Burgers

  • 2 C Carrots, grated
  • 2 C Portobello Mushrooms, chopped fine
  • 1 C Onion, chopped fine
  • 3/4 C Celery, diced
  • 1 C Walnuts, soaked and ground fine while wet
  • 1/2 C Pumpkin Seeds, soaked and ground fine while wet
  • 1/4 C Water, filtered
  • 1/4 C Nama Shoyu
  • 1 t. Sage
  • 1 t. Marjoram
  • 1 t. Thyme
  • 1 C Oat Flour, raw OR 3/4 C Flax, ground

1. Combine carrots, mushrooms, celery, and onion.

2. Stir in walnuts and pumpkin seeds, combine well.

3. Combine water and nama shoyu, mix into veggie/nut mixture

4. Add herbs, stir well.

5. Stir raw oat flour OR ground flax seeds in in batches (half at a time)

6. Shape into patties no 4-5 inches across, no more than 1 inch thick. Place on screens and dehydrate at 140 for 1 hour. Reduce heat to 115 and dehydrate until mostly dry. 3-4 hours. You want these to be moist, not rock hard. Makes 8 – 9 Burgers.

Chef’s Notes: Wondering why we start the dehydration at 140? Yes it is still raw.  Click here: Dehydration

I made these burgers 2 weeks ago, gonna make more today. They’re soooo good, I’m about 80%raw right now but with recipes like these, I’ll be 100% before long.

These burgers are easy to make, taste wonderful and reheat in the dehydrator well. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I ate them with raw onion bread, lettuce and tomato – yum!

Hi there!
Question – Since this recipe makes about 8 burgers, how shouldI store these? Fridge? Freezer? How Long? Just my son and I at home.
