A yummy little patty that I make regularly. It was one of my first dehydrator items; I usually put it together in the morning and then they are ready for dinner! Recipe by Alissa Cohen.
4 medium carrots
1 cup pecans
1 cup mushrooms (recipe states "button", but I love using portabellos too)
1 cup onion
3 tablespoon cilantro
2 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 pinch black pepper
Remember to add some herbs to taste! The original recipe calls for .5 teaspoon each of dried fennel, coriander, and curry…however feel free to play with this and experiment.
In a food processor, blend carrots until diced. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. Remove from processor and form into burgers. Place burger on a mesh dehydrator screen and dehydrate at 105 for 7-8 hours.
They darken up in the dehydrator and even resemble a real meat patty, but they taste better than any meat patty!
