Porcini Pecan Vegan Burger

When I weighed nearly 300 lbs, I loved drive thrus and grabbing a burger. My favorite was a double cheeseburger from the “golden arches”, of course I had fries and a Coke, all of which was super sized. I would eat the entire meal and then have a candy bar or snack cake for dessert.  Now that I know better, I make my own vegan burgers so I can control the amount of sodium, fat, calories and save an animal.

  1. I have only been able to find dried porcini mushrooms for $8 an ounce. This recipe calls for a cup, which would be $64 worth of porcini mushrooms. Will you please recommend a place to purchase porcini mushrooms? Many thanks in advance!

  2. I just made with sliced shiitake mushrooms and flax seed, as that is what I had on hand. A little heavy handed (accidentally) with liquid smoke. In freezer now. I expect they’ll be yummy.
