 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       tb           Olive Oil
    2                    Onions
    2                    Celery Sticks
    2                    Garlic cloves
  125       g            Bulgar Wheat
  250       g            Brazil Nuts
  300       ml           Vegetable stock
    2       tb           Tomato puree
    2       tb           Parsley (chopped)
    2       ts           Dried mixed herbs
    1                    Egg (beaten
 
   In a food processor chop finely the onion, garlic and
   celery. Seperatly chop nuts and set aside.
   
   Heat oil and add the onion, garlic and celery - saute
   until soft. Add the nuts and Bulgar wheat and saute
   for a couple of minutes until golden brown. Add the
   stock and simmer until the liquid is absorbed.
   
   Stir in tomato puree, parsley, herbs and the egg.
   Season with salt and pepper and leave until cool
   enough to handle.
   
   Shape into 'burgers' and either cook in oven at
   400F/200C/Gas 6 for 15 to 20 minutes until heated
   through or cook in frying pan. Place in burger buns
   with your favorite garnishes - I like cooked onion
   rings, lettuce, cheese and fresh tomato.
   
   If you have problems with the burgers falling apart
   when cooking try adding some grated cheese before
   shaping - this helps.
   
   An alternate serving suggestion is like a falafal.
   Take tablespoon sized amounts of mixture and fry in
   some oil until gold to dark brown. Put inside lightly
   warmed Pita bread with some salad and Chilli sauce.
   
   You can substitute your favorite nuts for the Brazils.
