1 cup chopped onions
2 TBSP minced garlic
2 TBSP oil
1 tsp dried basil or 2 tsp fresh basil
2 cups of cooked brown rice
2/3 cup sunflower seeds
2/3 cup cashews
1/3 cup of sesame seeds
1/3 cup of raw walnuts
1/3 cup of raw almonds
1/3 cup of tamari (concentrated soy sauce)
2/3 cup tahini (sesame seed paste
1 tsp oil
Saute onions and garlic in 2 TBSP oil. When onions are translucent, add basil and mix well.
Add mixture to rice. Grind all seeds and nuts in blender until fine. Add to rice along with tamari and tahini.
Shape into patties and brown in nonstick pan with one teaspoon oil.
Veggy buyrgers should be served in pita bread or burger buns with the usual toppings (tomato, lettuce, ketchup, relish, etc)
Variation: I didn’t have fresh onions or garlic on hand, so I just sprinkled some garlic powder and onion salt into the mix. I also used regular soy sauce and only added half the required amount.
