      These are *delicious*. Although I prefer to serve them on
      kaiser (hard seed) rolls, any bun or roll the approximate size of a
      hamburger bun will suffice. Even omnivores enjoy these.
      They are quick and easy to make, especially if you keep the
      beans and rice on hand in the freezer.

      1 cup cooked garbanzo beans (chick peas), slightly ground *
      1 cup cooked brown rice *
      1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (uncooked)
      2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari sauce
      1 teaspoon paprika
      1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      1 stalk celery, finely chopped
      1 small onion, peeled and finely chopped
      1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped
      Butter for frying and for buttering bread
      6 slices of cheese (optional)
      Hard seed rolls (or hamburger buns)
      Tomato ketchup (optional)

      * Beans and rice can be cooked ahead of time, and stored in
      the freezer until ready to use. That way, they will be
      available whenever you want to make beanburgers.

      — Form patties:
      . Combine garbanzo beans, brown rice, oatmeal, soy
      sauce, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Mix until well
      blended.
      . Add celery, onion, and garlic. Mix until thoroughly
      incorporated.
      . Form into six patties.
      – If the consistency is too soft to shape, you can
      simply drop six blobs into the skillet.
      – If you are not ready to cook them all at this
      time, you can place the excess mixture in a
      tightly- covered container, and cook that when
      ready.

      — If you are going to serve these on rolls or hamburger
      buns, heat them (either in oven, toaster oven, or bun
      warmer).

      — Cook:
      . Melt butter in large skillet.
      . Put patties in skillet.
      . Cook patties until browned on one side (3 – 5
      minutes).
      . Turn patties.
      . Place a slice of cheese on top of each patty.
      . Cook until second side is browned.

      — Serve:
      . Butter rolls or buns.
      . Serve each patty on a bun.
      . If desired, accompany with tomato ketchup, pickles,
      et cetera.

      Yield: 6 patties
