  1. In a saucepan, bring the water, bulgur, and soy sauce to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and set aside for 10 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  2. Grind cashews and sunflower seeds in a food processor to a fine meal.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the cooked bulgur, ground cashews and sunflower seeds, eggs, chili powder, garlic, and hot pepper sauce. Cover, and refrigerate for 4 hours to blend flavors.
  4. Prepare the grill for medium heat.
  5. Form the bulgur mixture into 6 patties. To prevent the patties from crumbling, spray a piece of foil with cooking spray, and place on the grill. Grill the patties 10 minutes, turning once, or until heated through and browned. Cooking time may vary according to thickness of patties and heat level.

Please clarify 1 1/8 cups of eggs.

These are great! I think they are some of the best veggie burgers I've had. They can come out kind of dry, so they are good served with lots of mayo and mustard. Also, I refrigerated the mix ...

These were so tasty, but I had trouble with them falling apart and being slightly dry. This may have been my fault for overcooking a bit or because I used less cashews and added some almond butt...

Made these exactly as written and they are delicious! Reminds me of Nature's Burgers I used to have when I was a kid. These will definitely become a staple for when we are going veggie...or jus...

These burgers were delicious! I didn't have sunflower seeds so substituted some ground chick peas. The flavour was really nice and they formed nice patty shapes.

Michael, I have been trying to find ways to substitute grains for meat and this recipe is perfect. I was concerned that the burgers would give me trouble in the tin foil, so I decided to place ...
