Soak dried porcini mushrooms in hot water for 15 minutes.

In a food processor, combine reconstituted mushrooms (saving the water), toasted pecans, brown rice, hemp seeds, panko bread crumbs, onion, liquid smoke, amino acids, onion powder, garlic powder, maple syrup, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Pulse until well combined. Add mushroom water, one tablespoon at a time, if necessary for desired consistency. You should be able to form a patty, but the patty will be slightly sticky.
Form into 8 burgers. Place burgers on parchment paper with parchment paper between each patty. Freeze for 30 min.
