Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and soak them overnight in the fridge. Make sure that the water is above the ingredients in the bowl by a couple of fingers at least!
Once the bowl of the soaking ingredients has been soaked
overnight, start blending. Add the 1/2 cup of mushrooms and a handful of spinach
(optional). If you DON'T have a high speed blender (Blendtec or Vitamix), just
blend in stages, i.e. blend a half cup at a time (or enough to just cover the
blades in your blender). Blend until desired consistency, if you like your
rawsage chunky leave some tiny bits. I like mine smooth, and let it blend WAY
down. Who wants to chew on seeds all night? Combine all your blended batches
back into the mixing bowl.
You could go the extra step and blend some soaked irish moss (well blended) and use maybe 3 Tbsp to work into into the batter which will kind of gelatinize it but it doesn't effect taste and is kind of unnecessary for vegans who don't need that meat-like texture. Also at this point, you could dehydrate the rawsage once it has been rolled into the proper links form to give it a "crispy skin" but also unnecessary.
