Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place mushrooms in food processor. Pulse briefly (for a few seconds) until reduced in size. Do not over-process!
  • 2. Place processed mushrooms in a large bowl. Add ground flax seeds and stir. Set bowl aside.
  • 3. Place all remaining ingredients in to the empty food processor. Process well (for a minute or two) until nicely combined and moist.
  • 4. Add food processed mixture to the large bowl. Stir gently until combined.
  • 5. Form into small, single-serving loaves, approximately 1 inch thick or less, probably two inches wide. Do not make a big huge loaf because it won't dehydrate properly! Place on parchment paper inside your dehydrator.
  • 6. Dehydrate on high for 2 hours. Reduce temperature to 105 degrees and continue dehydrating until to your desired result. The outside will go first, then the inside will go dark as well. I like to leave a bit of moisture in these. (They won't get completely crispy due to the olive oil.)

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Raw meatloaf recipes have strangely eluded my raw vegan grasp until now. But I'm excited to say that this raw meatloaf recipe takes the savory cake.

This meatloaf is made from nuts and mushrooms, and the mushrooms are really what sets the flavor and texture of this raw meatloaf recipe over the top. In fact, once you dehydrate it the color turns into a nice, dark brown--as you can see in this picture!

Note: After dehydrating, refrigerate right away. Mushrooms are sensitive!

PS: Even if you don't particularly care for mushrooms you might still adore this raw meatloaf recipe. I served it to my husband (who despises mushrooms) and he gobbled it up. The trick is not to mention that there are mushrooms inside! The mushrooms are chopped up quite small so they really just contribute to the overall texture rather than making this raw meatloaf recipe look all mushroomy.

Hi Cally, yes, instead of the sunflower seeds you could use pecans, walnuts, cashews, pine nuts or macadamia nuts. (Or a combination of them)

Hi there! This looks delicious, but I don't have a dehydrator. Is there another " cooking" method?

Nope, sorry Pinkie. A dehydrator is definitely needed for this to work out. Best to hold off on making this until you have access to a D.

Dusty's Review

Raw meatloaf recipe
5
5 out of 5

I made this dish using this recipe over this past weekend. I am definitely beginner with making raw food and was initially intimidated by the number of ingredients. However, it was actually pretty simple to prepare. The end result was amazing! I was really impressed with how the dish turned out. Thanks for posting this recipe. It is my fav new recipe!

Hello!!! I want to make this. Since I work, and I am also dealing with an illness, I try to throw stuff that I can in the freezer, so I know this is large, but do you think I can put some of the mixture in the freezer for a later dehydrating date? Or do you think cutting the recipe in half is better? And since I am the only one who loves raw in my house of two, how long will this last. I am also thinking this would make an awesome pate by taking some and processing it a bit longer? Thank you. And I have been dabbling in raw for a few years, and I am a new member, and I must say, I am having fun. Hugs.

Hi Heather, while I believe that halving the recipe is "safer", I actually think that the dehydrated meatloaf "patties" might freeze quite well - although I have never frozen them myself. I think if you make a full batch, then dehydrate them, and freeze some of them that might work well for you as something you can easily eat later.

In the fridge (without freezing) they might last for 3 days.

As far as turning it into a pate, sure thing! If you like the taste of it in batter form then processing some for a little longer and using for a pate is a nice idea to switch things up a bit!

OMG is this good! If you haven't tried it *please* make this raw meatloaf. I followed recipe exactly and these little loaves are wonderful! The only thing I'm going to try next time is cutting the recipe in half as it makes a lot.

I'm not a big fan of mushrooms so I was wandering if there is a strong mushroom flavor or are they in there mainly for texture?

Hi There - I'm planning on trying this wonderful looking receipe - I did raw detox last year but found it hard to keep on the raw diet, but I'm trying again now with the help of good receipes. My question is, I know you said to use the white mushrooms, but what about baby bellas? Do you think that might be too rich or ?
I'm so very impressed with your knowledge and how you present your information. Thank you!

Good question!! It's easy - you have to go to "Gravatar" and sign up for an account - then you upload your picture there... It's free

Then when you come here just use the same email address as you used to sign up for gravatar (when you're typing in the comments section) and your picture will automatically display here.

Lots of different websites also use "gravatar" so you may see your picture on other sites that you comment on, too.

Hope that made sense
