Let cool to the touch and make the patties [Published by The Kitchen Path http://home.earthlink.net/~kitpath 08/08/98(Sun) Bookreview] TESTED: Based on the time-saving tip, I used the idea (not necessarily the proportions). I mixed 1/4 cup white rice leftover from Chinese dinner with 1/2 cup cooked red lentils. Added the cashews, some crumbs, a little sauce and some chives for color: omitted egg. Made 4 small patties; placed in freezer while I made a vegetable sauce (1-cup total) with red and green bell pepper strips, carrots and celery, spring onion and stir fry sauce; salt and pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes; added vegetable broth and cornstarch so that we each got about 1/2 cup moist sauce. For the pasta, I made angel hair spaghetti tossed with shredded napa and cumin seed. Meanwhile browned the patties with vegetable oil spray and completed the heating in the toasted oven. Served 2 or 3. It was delicious! -Pat H. NOTES : Stirfry sauce is a variation on sweet-sour and teriyaki and may be labeled Asian gourmet or master sauce. Or try a vegetarian oyster sauce or Japanese style sweet sour sauce made with apricot and peppers. Serve the patties on a bed of rice or Chinese noodles. Accompany with green beans or broccoli. Total Time: 20 mins preparation and 50 mins cooking (see TIP). Makes 4 patties. *Recipe from Betty Crockers Vegetarian Cooking: Easy Meatless Main Dishes.
