Home Made Veggie Burgers

Are you a vegetarian or do you have friends who are?  Now you can join in the braai like everyone else with these delicious veggie burgers - vary the flavours to suit your taste - you can use Marmite instead of BBQ sauce if you wish.

1 cup walnuts or other nuts to yur taste
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 onion
2 tablespoons bbq sauce or other sauce
Black pepper
Garlic powder
Herbs (sage and oregano are good - so is rosemary)

Blend the walnuts, rice, BBQ sauce, and spices into a paste.
Saute the onions and add them to the mix.
Add enough flour so that it forms a workable dough.
Shape into patties and sprinkle flour onto the outsides of the patties.
Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Shallow fry, or grill, or bake (they hold together reasonably well on the grill, only slightly more crumbly than an actual hamburger is.) until brown.  Serve as you would a normal hamburger.

Serve with extra BBQ sauce on a bun, perhaps with onion, lettuce, tomato, or whatever else you want on it. Makes six.
