Nut and Veggie Burgers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by cassiesmydog

This is an interesting and addictive veggie burger. There is a little natural foods drive-in near where i live that serves something like this.I talked to a lady who at one time worked at the drive-in and she told me that they used the left over carrot pulp from making carrot juice in the burger. After years of trying to figure out the ingredients i came up with this, and it is pretty close. I hope you like it. Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients, it goes together quickly and freezes well uncooked. I have guessed at the prep and cooking time. I have not timed myself making this.

These tasted amazing! Better that I even imagined they would... and I was trying to copy the recipe from the natural foods drive in also! I am sticking with a 5 star rating even though they were a chore to make. The mixture was really difficult to blend in my food processor and just turned into a thick mass that wouldn't move. Next time I will take the advice of another poster and blend the veggies separate from the nuts and mix them together later. I omitted the sage, used less of the curry and poultry seasoning, more of the cumin, and added 1 Tbsp. of soy sauce. Used 1/4 cup whey powder instead of 1/2. Also, only used one egg (all that I had on hand). I turned mine into a "nutty taco" by crumbling up the "meat" as I cooked it, like I would have with ground beef... served it with melted cheese, salsa, tomato, lettuce and sprouts on a soft corn tortilla.
I can not thank you enough for this recipe. I am so happy I found it!
