Vegan Cashew Oyster Burgers

Don't panic, vegan friends - I'm talking about oyster mushrooms here! Burger week at my house has turned up two real winners - the Walnut Burgers from Monday, and these fabulously fishy (but not too fishy) patties. These were great on grainy buns with the usual trimmings, but I also think they'd make lovely little appetizer-sized oyster cakes or sliders.



Cashew Oyster Burgers

1 cup raw cashews, lightly toasted and finely chopped

4 ounces fresh oyster mushrooms, finely chopped

1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1/2 cup celery, finely chopped

1/2 cup quick oats

1/4 cup flour

1 T nutritional yeast

3 T flax seed meal

2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp kelp granules

1/2 tsp salt - or to taste

1/4 tsp pepper

1 T tamari

1 T mustard

1 tsp vegan worcestershire

2 T water


Mix everything together using your hands. Shape into 3 or 4 patties and cook over medium-low heat in a non-stick frying pan until both sides are browned.


These are good with homemade tartar sauce: vegan mayo, mustard, and chopped pickles. Yum.
