These tasty jicama burgers are inspired by crab cakes and contain just five ingredients (if you count the spice blend as one!). While they may not taste fishy like a crab cake, the combination of jicama and walnuts creates a texture that is fairly spot-on. Also, with a blend of savory herbs mixed in, they taste amazing. There is no cooking involved, but if you don't have a dehydrator, keep them in your oven at the lowest temperature until they are firm on the outside — or try cooking them! Just remember to serve them with avocado.

Jicama Burgers With Cumin, Coriander, Dill, and Lemon [Vegan]



  • 1 cup jicama
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • Cumin, coriander, dill, chili, salt and pepper (as desired)
  • 1 cup walnuts


  1. Peel and chop the jicama and onion up into small chunks.
  2. Throw all the ingredients - except the walnuts - into your food processor and pulse a few times until it's a consistency you like. Dump into a bowl and set aside.
  3. Now process the walnuts into a thick paste and add this to the first mixture, combining evenly so you end up with a mushy mix... it doesn't sound appetizing but other describing words are not coming to mind at the moment.
  4. Shape into cakes (I used a large cookie mold) and then dehydrate for a few hours until they hold together; or use your oven at it's lowest temperature to get the same result.
  5. Serve with herbs, avocado, veggies, spreads, crackers, or whatever else you like!
