Portobello Patties

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeKid-FriendlyVegan


  • 1⁄2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1⁄4 cup hemp seeds
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1⁄2 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tbsp EFA oil
  • 2 tbsp brown rice miso paste
  • 1 tsp pressed garlic
  • 1⁄2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped walnut pieces
  • 2 medium Portobello mushrooms, (chopped into large cubes)
  • 1⁄3 cup quinoa flakes (for cooked method only; omit for raw method)


  1. In a food processor, combine all ingredients except walnuts and mushrooms, and process until well combined. Turn off the processor and add in the walnuts and mushrooms.
  2. Pulse just 3 or 4 times until the mushrooms are diced, but do not blend. Remove mixture from the processor and transfer to a medium bowl.

Raw Method (best):

  1. Shape the mixture into 4 balls and flatten into patties on a teflex or nonstick sheet.
  2. Dehydrate for 10–12 hours at 115°F, then flip and transfer to a mesh sheet and “cook” for 2 more hours.

These keep for several days wrapped and refrigerated, and can be reheated as needed.

Cooked method:

  1. Mix the quinoa flakes into the mushroom mixture and let stand for 20 minutes.
  2. Sauté the chopped mushrooms in a dry pan for 2 or 3 minutes to cook out some of the moisture.
  3. Follow the rest of the recipe to form burgers.
  4. To cook, shape the mixture into 4 balls (press firmly to compact) and form into patties.
  5. Over very low heat, oil the pan with 1 or 2 tbsp coconut oil.
  6. Add the patties, and cook approximately 10 minutes on each side. The patties will remain soft on the inside but utterly enjoyable.

To Serve:

Try “protein style” on a salad with a mustard vinaigrette, in a collard green with avocado and vegetables

Received your "Thrive" book for a birthday present and was not planning on doing the Vegan or Gluten Free thing, but after reading the first few chapters I almost felt I needed to. I made these last night for my first meal from your book. Delicious! I found gluten free tapioca bread at the store and served with avocado and cilantro hummus, cucumber, tomato, and mixed bean sprouts.
