Mushroom Pecan Veggie Burger

I LOVE veggie burgers and when I tasted this Mushroom Pecan Burger served at the Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, N.Y., I just knew God would serve this up at the Great Banquet! I top it with a couple slices of raw organic cheese and mustard/mayo & voil√†!

Here is the recipe:

Spray skillet with cooking spray (I use organic coconut oil spray). Add a tablespoon of coconut oil.

Chop 1 medium onion and a tub of mushrooms and add to skillet. Cook with 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram & 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme.

Cook until tender and add to a glass bowl.

Add 2 teaspoons of soy sauce, 1/3 cups chopped toasted pecans, 1 cup bread crumbs, 1 cup brown rice, 1/4 cup oats, & 1 Tablespoon of chopped dill.

Add 1 -14 oz. package of cake firm organic tofu and mash all ingredients with your hands... add salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape ingredients into 6 patties and place on greased baking dish, or parchment paper.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Add 2 slices of raw, organic cheddar cheese and you have an absolutely scrumptious veggie burger!

I serve with a mixture of organic mayo & organic dijon mustard. Can be eaten with or without a bun and with all of your favorite toppings (such as tomatoes, lettuce, pickles, sprouts...), or simply all by its absolutely, wonderful, flavorful self...

Hi Marisa and Brittany! I just discovered your blog through blog frog and am so glad I did. I was vegan for a while and burgers were the hardest to make at home, but these look amazing! Looking forward to trying them, thanks for sharing!

Can't wait to try these nutty burgers. I'm a firm believer that a handful of nuts makes anything better.
