  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add carrots, celery, mushrooms, walnuts, thyme, salt, pepper and cayenne and cook together, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.

  • Shape the mixture into about 12 burgers and pan fry them with a little oil. Alternatively, you can grill the burgers on the barbecue.
