Recipe Directions

  • 1. Add all dry ingredients (except hemp hearts and chopped veggies) to your food processor. Process until well mixed and almost flour-like. Transfer into a large bowl.
  • 2. Add remaining ingredients (hemp hearts and chopped veggies) to mixture in large bowl. Stir with a spoon until thoroughly combined.
  • 3. Add water and lemon juice. Stiragain.
  • 4. Line dehydrator trays with parchment paper.
  • 5. Form patties with your hands, similar to burger patties—approximately ½ to ¾ of an inch thick. Place on trays. Patties should fill approx. onetray. Patties should not touch one another.
  • 6. Dehydrate on high for 1.5 hours. Reduce heat and dehydrate for another 5 hours. Once burger patties are holding together and firming up nicely, remove parchment paper and continue dehydrating until they reach desired veggie burger consistency.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Wondering how can you have a raw veggie burger without meat or bread, etc? Just get raw-creative!

First, the patty. Raw veggie burger patties are usually made from a savory concoction of vegetables and a binding agent (like flax seed, for example). The mixture is molded into patties and dehydrated in a dehydrator, which results in a delicious, hearty patty. When preparing your patties, be mentally prepared that they will be a lot smaller after dehydration as much of the moisture is removed during the dehydration process.

The bun? You can either make a bread or cracker by dehydrating them, or do what I do. Wrap the patty in a crisp leaf or romaine lettuce and you're good to go. :)

The condiments? Try this nut-based raw mayonnaise recipe or raw ketchup!

Although this specific recipe has a lot of ingredients, it's actually quick to prepare since it's pretty much "throw and go." I love the flavor of this recipe. I really don't like the raw carrot/almond veggie burger recipe that seems to be everywhere nowadays. In contrast, this recipe is nice and moist. It doesn't taste like "meat" but it is a very nice, fresh, flavorful veggie burger patty. Give it a try - it's easier than it looks.

If you don't have a dehydrator, you can cook these in an oven at above-raw temperatures. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Cook at 350 for 15 minutes. Flip and cook for another 20 minutes. Let cool.

Hi Penny! cute pic!

5 days in fridge. Yep, they freeze great! Just defrost in fridge when you want to eat. And even better, then dehydrate again for an hour or so immediately before eating

Hi Laura-Jane, I'm having a hard time finding hemp hearts. Is it ok to substitute something else like flax or chia seeds in their place? I really want to make these. Thank you ❤️

Raw veggie burger recipe

I made the first batch exactly as described (only added soaked chia seeds) and they were great; there just wasn't enough....yummy! The second batch I had run out of sunflower seeds so I used pecans and almonds. In researching hemp burgers, I found a recipe that called for chia seeds soaked in water. This site stated that the gelatinous state soaking them beings will help them bind together; it worked perfectly. Also, I added chopped mushrooms, a heaping teaspoon of chutney, ancho chile pepper and chipotle chile pepper for a little kick. For my taste, it was even better.

Almost forgot...hemp seeds are easily found on Amazon.
I also added grated carrot to the mix. Not having a dehydrator, I baked mine in the oven and I intend to re-heat on the grill for an added flavor.

Hi ShelbyCat,

Unfortunately not for this recipe - the hempseed hearts really make it! It won't turn out at all the same without them

Raw burgers do not say exact temperature cooking. Is low 105? What is high?

Is there a substitute for hemp seed? It's one of those highly illegal foods the United Arab Emirates will throw you in jail for (21 years).

Hi Mavypoo! Yikes, do steer clear of them then! Nope, in this recipe there is no substitution. However, I do have other veggie burger recipes that do not include hempseeds so best to make one of them :)

How about sesame seeds in place of hemp seeds? I made this burger tonight and love it. My" bun" was an iceburg lettuce leaf. Inside I layered:
The burger, ranch dressing, pickles, sliced tomatoe, cole slaw, grainy mustard YUM! The leaf wrapped around the top. On the side, I had jicama fries. Wow was it good!
I made 6 medium patties half Inch thick. I barely filled one tray.

Yummmmmy! For the fries, did you just slice em up and dehydrate? Did you spread oil before you dehydrated? I don't use jicama much, but I should try it. Especially for fries!!
