Veggie Nut Patties/Loaves

Another fabulous recipe by Karen Knowler. Click on "New To Raw Food?" on the sidebar for her recipes.

At this time of year, we're still really wanting those slightly heavier dishes.

Makes 2 decent loaves or many burgers (depends on size and depth of your burger)
This is soooooooo delicious. It stores in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Eat as is or dehydrate partially.
Eat with salad or alone.
Great to take away for lunch, picnic, potluck, in the car on a long ride or short ride, etc.

2 cups almonds or walnuts or pecans, or any combo of the three, pre-soaked
2 - 3 large carrots, cut up
1/2 large onion or more
1 large handful of parsley
1/4 cup lemon juice. In Brazil I use lime juice.
1 teaspoon sea salt
If you like curry it is delicous. Try half batch with it.

Process all of it in food processor. Taste. Add what is missing.
Lick the bowl.
Dehydrate partially for a few hours.

If you do not have a dehydrator you can do this in the oven with the door open.
Buy an oven thermometer and hang it in the oven on one of the racks and watch that the heat stays below 118 degrees Farenheit.

Place the patties or loaves on a pan.
This is how I made it in Brazil and it worked great.

Those look like the falafel patties I used to make. It’s just amazing what folks are doing with raw foods.
