I'm going to give it a try!
Egg Substitute: 1/3 cup water and 4 teaspoons flax seeds
1 cup raw Brazil nuts
2/3 cup clery chunks
2/3 cup celery chunks
2/3 cup onion chunks
1/2 cup parsley leaves
1/2 cup green pepper chunks
1/3 semsame flour or sesame seeds
1 1/2 teaspoons whole cumin seeds
Handful of gresh dill, foliage only
1 teaspoon whole fennel seeds
1/4 teaspoon salt and ground pepper to taste
Combine the water and flax seeds ina small saucepan. Bring to a full boil, then turn off heat. Let them soak until needed. Preheat the oven to 375. Grind nuts and transfer them to a large bowl. Combine the remaining ingredients in a food processor, or put them through a grinder. Grind into meal, not a puree. Add this mixture to the ground nuts. Scrape the flax seed mixture into the bowl with everything else. Toss and stir several minutes to mix well. Line a cookie sheet with parchment, or oil it, and drop scoops.
Hope you'll enjoy it!
