Raw Veggie Burger

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup Hemp hearts (hemp seeds)

1/2 Cup Sunflower seeds

1/2 Cup Walnuts or pecans

1/4 Cup Ground flax seeds

3/4 Cup Finely chopped veggies (combination of celery, onion, fresh parsley, and/or red pepper – some of each is best, but ratio doesn’t matter)

2 Tbsp Ground chia seeds

1 Tbsp Water

2 Tsp Lemon juice

1 Garlic clove

1 Tsp Sea salt

2 Tsp Dried dill (optional)

1 Tbsp Nutritional yeast (optional)

Directions:

1. Add all ingredients (except hemp hearts and chopped veggies) to your food processor. Process until well mixed. Transfer into a large bowl.

2. Add remaining ingredients (hemp hearts and chopped veggies) to mixture in large bowl. Mix with a spoon until thoroughly combined.

3. Line dehydrator trays with parchment paper.

4. Form patties with your hands—approximately 1/2″ thick. Place on trays. Patties should not touch one another.

5. Dehydrate 115˚F for 1.5 hours. Reduce to 95˚F 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.
