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.

Im also unsure what this dehydrate means? Do we need some kind of equipment?

I'm not sure what you mean by dehydrate on high then lower the heat and dehydrate longer. What temp do you mean by high?

I've started my raw lifestyle a few days ago and thus far I have used two of your recipes, the alfredo sauce for my my kelp noodles and the brownie recipe, and both were fantastic.

thanks

Thank you so much for posting these wonderful recipes! I was wondering if you can post the ingredients of your veggie burger as a response to this comment? I am going to purchase my first dehydrator this month and am eager to make them. Thanks again!

Here's a raw veggie burger recipe. You could substitute flax seeds for the sesame seeds if you want.

Veggie Burgers
1 large red onion

1 large bell pepper

3 carrots

1 small head cauliflower

1 lg. stalk broccoli

1 C almonds, soaked 12-24 hours

1 C sunflower seeds, soaked 5-6 hours

1/4 C sesame seeds, soaked 5-6 hours

5 cloves garlic

2 T Braggs or to taste
1 t cumin

2 T dried Cilantro or 1-2 C fresh
(can add mushrooms too if you like)
Blend all of the above ingredients and seasonings in a champion juicer with solid plate, or a food processor. This blended food is your patty mixture. Form and put 1/2" thick patties on a teflex sheet and place trays in dehydrator. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 8-12 hours or until desired texture is obtained. Flip your burgers after 4 hours and remove teflex sheets, continue to dehydrate for 4-5 hours or until desired moisture is obtained.

When I remove my teflex sheets for the veggie burgers, do I put them directly on the plastic tray? My plastic trays have big diagonal holes that are too big for the burgers.....
Thankyou!

Yes - put them directly on the train but DON'T DO IT UNTIL THEY ARE QUITE DRY ALREADY (otherwise you will get your trays dirty)

I just came across this recipe as I have been trying to make veggie burgers with flax seed and I am trying to cut down on grains and beans at the moment. I have tried them with ground flax seeds and whole flax seeds and both times they have come out tasty but quite gelatinous!!! I don´t have a dehydrator, would this take the gelatinous consistency out? Thank u

Heehee, yes, get a dehydrator if you can afford it. You'll find a world of difference : ) Dehydrating opens up a whole new world of options for raw food.

In other words, you MUST HAVE A DEHYDRATOR TO MAKE THIS RECIPE!

I make my raw burgers with the aforementioned veggies but I add mushrooms too. I think they give them more of a meaty consistency. I dry them most of the way and store them in the fridge in a ziplock with some paper towels to absorb excess moisture. They last a while for me.
These also make great burrito filling too. :)

Once these are dehydrated, how long do they last. How would you store them. Thanks

Two options:

1. Do not dehydrate them completely. In other words, there is some moisture left. (This is the preferred option because they taste better this way.) Store these in the fridge (or freezer I guess). They won't last very long.

2. Dehydrate so that there is NO moisture left - completely dry! Store them in a jar or a ziploc. Can store for a couple of months if there is NO moisture left. (Good test - squeeze and they shouldn't move an inch.)

In option #2 you can keep in a pantry. No need to refrigerate.
