Last Friday, I was very heartbroken to see the people in Paris were attacked by ISIS. Truthfully, I did not know the whole story but the crime investigation was still in process. As if that wasn’t enough tragic news; two players from Grant Union High School, located in Sacramento, were shot, one killed and another one was alive. Both were seniors. Their playoff game was postponed until the investigation was complete. Believe me, it was not because of Friday the 13th. Many people in the world thought that Friday the 13th was evil’s favorite day. Some thought that it was superstition. For some reasons, God had the plans and He knew before the incidents occurred. Please pray for the people of Paris and for Grant Union High School family and football team.
In the kitchen, I checked some foods in the refrigerator and I felt like that I wanted to eat something delicious. I went into the pantry closet and found some nuts. I thought that I could eat the nuts but something popped in my mind. NUTBURGER! Have you eaten this before? If not, you should try this! I love nutburgers! It’s very healthy for vegans and for those who are on diets. When my husband and I were dating, he took me to a restaurant in Fair Oaks, CA called the Sunflower. This is where I tried it for the first time. Since then I’ve gotten it each time I visit my mother in law. Since I can’t drive to get one often, I made my homemade nutburger at home.
Would you like to join me and learn how to make homemade nutburger?
What You Need:
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1/2 cup cashews
- 1/2 cup walnuts
- 1/2 cup grated carrot
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup chopped garlic
- 1 cup cooked couscous
- 2 tbsp garlic olive oil (or Liquid Aminos)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp parsley
*This recipe is adapted from the Key Ingredient. However, I changed some list in this recipe in order to make the correction in the measures and ingredients.*
STEP ONE: Combine the mixed nuts in the food processor. Add 1/2 teaspoon of the water.
STEP TWO: Combine garlic, white onion, and carrots in the large bowl. Add the nut mixtures and mix it together.
STEP THREE: Add 1 cup of cooked couscous. And then add 1/2 cup water and 2 tbsp garlic olive oil, mix it in the bowl.
STEP FOUR: Add dried basil and parsley in the large bowl, stir well.
STEP FIVE: Use 1/4 cup to scoop each of the nut patties, make 6 patties on the greased baking sheet. Put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes – 1 hour.
STEP SIX: Preheat 400° F. And then bake it until 30 minutes or you see the patties turn brown. Be sure that they are not burned up.
STEP SEVEN: You can add spouts, mayo, flat breads, and anything you want.
Enjoy your meal!
This sounds fabulous. I’ve always wondered about the ingredients for this, now I can save it.

While I am a carnivore until the day I die, this sounds awesome for people who don’t like meat.

Yay a vegetarian recipe love the sound of this!
This is so insanely creative!!! And “meaty”!
I love veggie burgers. I need to buy all the nuts to make this.

Nut burger sounds like a great vegan substitute for meat. What a great idea!
Yumm! Sounds so healthy and delish!
I hope this encourages people to try more nontraditional burger patties! Nut burgers and mushroom burgers too are sooooo good and guilt-free!
I’ve had something similar, but it didn’t have couscous in it. I definitely want to try this!
That sounds like a perfect burger to me.
I never heard of a nutburger, very interesting! Looks good.
This looks great, would give it a try
I’ve always wanted to try and make a homemade burger patty. This one looks great 🙂

I haven’t heard of this but I would love to try it as someone who loves burger and nuts. My only question is is this good for people on diets? I know most nuts are very high in calories?
Joyce Cortes Mackenroth
Try low sodium nuts or low calories nuts. I hope this helps. 🙂
Yummy!! I can’t wait to put this nutburger in my mouth. This recipe looks amazing! Thanks.
Kristi @ Homestead Wishing
This looks fabulous! I bet it tastes amazing!
I’ve never heard of a nutburger before and I would definitely like to try it. I think it’s a great alternative to the fatty burger patty.
This looks tempting but I am too much of a meat/chicken lover to honestly say I will join you in makeing it. But, do enjoy one for me. 🙂
the name had me wondering if i would like it but it looks delicious

This sounds delicious! I’ve tried several bean/veggie burgers but I’ve never thought of a nut version.
Wow it looks really amazing. I never try to do this and i would love to try this for my hubby
I never would have thought to make nuts into a burger! YuM!
I have never had – or even hear of – a nutburger before! But now I must try one!
I would totally try that burger. I’m not in the mushroom burger, but this could work!
I’ve never had a nut burger before. It looks really yummy and I would love to try this.
I haven’t tried it, but it looks good taste and fantastic. I’m gonna try it.

I’m thinking my husband might love this one. It looks pretty good!
I’ve been reeling since last Friday – and am so saddened to hear about the shooting in CA now too.
I lost my beloved furbaby on the 13th – all around a horrible horrible day.
Thanks SO much for this recipe – my daughter is a vegan so will definitely try this – have never heard of a nut burger before !
This burger actually looks very good. I have my doubts about anything that isn’t meat, however I would be willing to give this a try. I have many friends who are indeed vegan and I think they would love this. Thank you for sharing this.

We live a few minutes from Sunflower Drive In and are on our way there now. But I have been searching for a recipe for the locally famous nut burger. I will definitely make this soon (when I’m not in the mood to wait in line or fend off the ever-present roosters and chickens 🙂
