Be sure to scrape the sides of the processor frequently. Do not become concerned if the mixture seems dry.

  • Pull 3/4 cup portions of the mixture and shape into a patty. Fry in skillet sprayed with vegetable or canola oil and preheated to medium heat. Cook 3 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper on each side. Serve on whole wheat bun or pita with lettuce, red onion slices, tomato and condiments. Try a chow-chow or fresh herb aioli!!
