Awesome Raw, Vegan Nut Burger

Inspired by the deliciousness that is The Nut Burger at Follow Your Heart located in Canoga Park, CA.  If you are in the Los Angeles area- go to Follow Your Heart and get The Nut Burger.  

If you can't make it to FYH, you can make a homemade version.  You can use any type of nuts and seeds that you prefer, but personally I think the tahini and coconut aminos are required.  I recommend using at least 2 different types of raw nuts/seeds for best flavor.  I use 2-4 different types of nuts/seeds at a time.



  • 1 cup of presoaked mixed raw nuts and seeds (ex. almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds)
  • 2 Tablespoons of tahini
  • 2 teaspoons of coconut aminos

Process the presoaked nuts in a blender or food processor first until they are in small pieces.  Add the tahini and coconut aminos.  Process again until a chunky paste forms.

That is your "burger patty meat."

Then top with avocado and sprouts.

You can make a burger, an open faced version on one piece of toast, or cute hor d'oeuvres on crackers as shown in the picture.  Depending on your bread/cracker choice, they can be gluten-free and/or raw.
