                         -fairly finely ground
      2/3   c            Fresh breadcrumbs
                         -(whole-wheat)
                         Salt
                         Freshly ground black pepper
                         Dried breadcrumbs
                         -(for coating)
                         Oil -- for shallow frying
                         -----TO GARNISH-----
                         Lettuce leaves
                         Tomato slices
                         Cucumber slices
 
   Melt the butter or vegan margarine in a large saucepan and saute the onion
   and celery for 10 minutes.  Stir in the herbs and flour and cook for a
   further 1-2 minutes.
   
   Add the stock and stir until thickened, then add the soy sauce, yeast
   extract, nuts, breadcrumbs and salt and pepper.
   
   Leave the mixture to cool, then form into 6 flat burgers about 1/2 thick,
   and coat with dried breadcrumbs.
   
   Saute the burgers in a very little oil - the frying pan should be “greased”
   rather than oily - for about 3 minutes on each side, until browned and
   crisp.  Drain on paper towels.  Garnish and serve.
   
   VARIATION: MACADAMIA NUT BURGERS Using macadamia nut of the peanuts makes
   these burgers special.  Serve with Bernaise Sauce.
