These almost raw walnut burgers are also awesome on rainy summer days, because instead of throwing them on the grill, you slow-cook them in the oven. Made from walnuts, mushrooms, carrots, and savory sun-dried tomatoes, these burgers are made completely from whole foods. If you don't follow a raw diet, serve them on a bun like you would with any burger otherwise, throw one on top of a big salad and enjoy.

Preparation

  1. Drain and rinse the soaked walnuts, and add them to a blender or food processor.
  2. Add all the other ingredients and blend until smooth. The mixture will have a very moist, loose consistency.
  3. Form the mixture into patties, place on parchment paper, and heat in the oven until firm. At raw temperatures, 104-118°F this could take 3-4 hours. If you are not following a strict raw diet, you can heat it at 300°F for an hour. No matter what temperature you choose, the burgers should remain soft and moist.
  4. Serve on buns or a salad with your toppings of choice.
