Raw Food Ayurveda Recipe: Brazil Nut-Mushroom-Tomato Stacks

Here we have a textured, brazil nut spin-off of my Raw Vegan Cheddar “Cheesy” Burgers.

Layered between two juicy slices of fresh, summer-ripe heirloom tomato…

A generous serving of salt-free sauerkraut

Atop fresh, crisp leaves of lettuce…

These babies rock!

Here’s the recipe!


  • 1 batch brazil nut cheese (Follow this recipe for the culturing process and use 1 cup soaked brazil nuts, 1/2 cup water, 1 clove garlic, juice of 1 lime, and 1 tiny hot pepper) 
  • 9 crimini mushrooms 
  • 2 cups celery pulp
  • 4 cups dark greens 
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 tbsp no salt seasoning
  • 3 tiny hot peppers


  1. Place 3 crimini mushrooms, celery pulp, 2 cups of the dark greens, green onion, seasoning, and hot peppers in a high speed blender. Blend until smooth, using tamper and spatula, as needed.
  2. Add brazil nut cheese to blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Place blended mixture in mixing bowl.
  4. In the food processor, pulse blend (coarsely chop until crumbly) 6 crimini mushrooms and 2 cups dark greens. This will add a nice texture to the patties. Add this to the blended mixture in the mixing bowl.
  5. Massage together the blended and crumbly components.
  6. Form patties 1/3-1/2 cup each on a non-stick dehydrator tray.
  7. Let patties dehydrate for 5-6 hours at 115 degrees, flipping halfway through.
  8. Serve with juicy tomato, quick pickles, sauerkraut, avocado, and your favorite sauces.

Doshic Analysis:

Vata – This works for you! Mushrooms and celery pulp may not be the best choices. Substitute root veggies and zucchini, if needed. You can follow the recipe format, and blend some and shred some for an interesting texture.

Pitta – See how you respond to the brazil nuts. You may do well with this recipe as long as you only eat 1-2 patties in a meal. Otherwise, the brazil nuts may be potentially aggravating. Skip hot peppers if pitta is aggravated, and substitute cooling herbs and spices, like dulse, wakame, parsley, cilantro, basil, and dill. 

Kapha – Brazil nuts are not an optimal fat for you. As with pitta, you may do best only having 1-2 burgers in a given meal for optimal digestion and assimilation. Be sure to enjoy these with lots of veggies for the best balance. Add any additional spices and hot peppers that you enjoy to crank up the heat!
