   add the diced garlic, onions, celery, and peppers;
   saute for 7 minutes. Add the tamari, basil, garlic
   powder, parsley, and oregano; saute for 2 minutes
   more, until vegetables are soft. In a large bowl,
   combine the carrots, sauteed vegetables, tahini and
   peanut butter.
    Season to taste. If the batter is too wet, add the
   wheat germ to make it hold together.
    Preheat oven to 350. Form the mixture into patties,
   and place on an oiled cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12
   minutes, until golden on top. Turn and bake on the
   other side until golden brown.
