  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup tehina (tahini)
  • 1 tablespoon white miso or sea salt, to taste
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar
  • Fresh parsley, minced
Directions

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and saute the onions, carrots, garlic, cumin, celery seed, and salt over medium heat until the onions are transparent. In a food processor, combine the nuts, and blend until 1/2 are a coarse meal and the other are just cracked. Place in a large mixing bowl and add the Sauteed vegetable mixture. Add the garbanzo beans in the processor and process the same way as the nuts. Add flour and arrowroot. Add the beans and parsley to the mixing bowl. Mix everything together well until the mixture has enough body to form a patty. If the mixture is too dry or crumbly, add a small amount of water to help the mixture bind. Form the mixture into 4 burgers. Lightly oil the frying pan and fry the burgers over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until lightly browned
