3 large portabella mushrooms, peeled and chopped
1 cup walnuts, soaked 1-8 hours and rinsed
2-4 tbsp flaxseeds, hulled
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp tamari soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp mixed italian spices (I used a combination of parsley, rosemary, coriander, basil and oregano)
1/2 tsp cracked pepper
-Pour the Apple Cider Vinegar and Tamari over the chopped mushrooms, add garlic and basil leaves, stir through and leave to marinate for a minimum of 2 hours. Note: if you have little time- slice the mushrooms really thinly.
-Rince out the water from soaked walnuts, place them with the mushrooms into a food processer with an S Blade, pulse so they are chopped fine and mixed in, but still slightly chunky.
-Depending on how long you marinated the mushrooms for, you will end up with a different amount of marinade liquid. If there is only a small amount, only add 2 tablespoons of hulled flaxseeds, but if your mushrooms are drowning in water, only then add 4 tablespoons of flax.
-Also add all the spices and pulse a couple of times to let everything mix in, then let the mixture sit for half an hour for the flax to soak up the liquid.
- Roll into any size 'Meat' Balls you like, but note that the larger they are, the longer the'll take to dehydrate.
-Place on mesh tray of your dehydrator and dehydrate at 110degrees F for 4-6 hours
