All the world is nuts about
What's in The Nut Gourmet
Start the new year by making resolutions that are fun and easy to achieve. One suggestion might be to treat yourself to more culinary adventures. One such adventure awaits below with an easy recipe to enjoy the rich flavor of natural sesame seeds.
Some advance planning will make these patties come together quickly. Cook the wild rice a day ahead. Then measure the 2 cups cooked rice for this recipe. The leftover rice can be used in a salad or reheated for another meal.
Sesame Nut Patties is one of the delicious recipes from Zel Allen's cookbook The Nut Gourmet: Nourishing Nuts for Every Occasion published by Book Publishing Company in 2006.
SESAME NUT PATTIES
Yield: 9 to 11 (3-inch or 7.5 cm) patties.
- Lightly oil a large baking sheet and set it aside. Combine 3 cups (720 ml) of the water with the wild rice in a 2-quart (2 liter) saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat down to medium-low and steam for 50 to 60 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Measure 2 cups (240 ml) of cooked wild rice for the recipe and set it aside. (Store the remaining cooked rice in the refrigerator to use for another recipe.)
- Grind the walnuts, cashews, and pistachios to a coarse meal in a food processor, and leave them in the processor.
- Combine 1/4 cup (60 ml) of the water and the psyllium husks in a small cup or bowl and stir well to moisten. Set aside for 1 minute to thicken, then add to the processor with the nuts.
- Add the cooked wild rice, soy sauce, chili powder, oregano, nutmeg, and thyme to processor. Process briefly until all the ingredients are well combined. Add 1 to 3 tablespoons of water if the mixture is too dry to hold together.
- Form the mixture into patties about 3 inches (7.5 cm) in diameter. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on a dish and press both sides of each patty into the seeds. Arrange the patties on the prepared baking sheet.
- Broil the patties 3 inches (7.5 cm) from heat for 2 to 5 minutes, until golden brown. Watch closely so they don't burn. Turn the patties over with a metal spatula and broil 1 to 2 minutes on the second side.
