I'm going to give it a try!

Brazil Burgers


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!
