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.
