Blend the tomatoes, shallots, garlic, salt, pepper, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, paprika, lemon juice, and green onions in a food processor or blender. Add one or two tablespoons of water if needed, less water means a shorter dehydration time. Add the walnuts and pulse the mixture several times. The nuts and herbs should only be processed/blended for a few seconds, so that theyretain some crunchy texture. Taste the burger and adjust ingredients as needed. Spoon the mixture into small patties on a teflex sheet. Dehydrate at 105 degrees on a teflex sheet for 2 hours at 105 degrees until firm enough to flip. Transfer mixture to mesh dehydrator sheets and dehydrate for an additional 4 hours or until desired texture is achieved.

Place the patty on a plate and add a generous portion of mixed leafy greens, zucchini noodles, chopped green onions, cilantro, parsley, and avocado slices. Pour the cashew curry sauce over the greens and patty. Serve immediately.
