Got a food processor?

Don's variation was to stir in raw bread crumbs to make it easier to form patties. He also added some black sesame seeds and a couple of chopped sun-dried tomatoes.

The mix is actually delicious raw. Of course, it's better if you cook it.

I had it burger-style with tomato, lettuce, ketchup and mustard. It is the richest thing I have EVER had. He feels the texture isn't as meaty as the rice burgers he made last week, but I think the texture is great.

I like the way we eat when we're poor. We had eggplant parmesan for lunch.

That sounds really good... what do you think it would be like if I were to leave out the soy sauce? We have to do the wheat-free thing, so soy sauce is out. Is tamari wheat-based? I may have to play with this recipe and see what happens. :)

Max and I made tahini cookies a couple of weeks ago-- tahini, honey, pecans, oatmeal, and cinnamon. MmMmMMmmMMm.

Mmm, your tahini cookies sound AMAZING.

I thought tamari and soy sauce were the same. Turns out tamari is the Razormaid version!

Tamari is similar to soy sauce, tamari is made from soybeans but it does not contain wheat. It is thicker than soy, and has a smoother flavor because it is brewed over time, sometimes six months. Although sometimes used in cooking, it is more frequently used for basting or as a condiment.

I learned something!

Re: gen again

You won't be sorry. (If you like sesame, that is.)
