 burger contest!
 Basic Bean Burgers
 Victoria Schiloni, who owns and operates a vegetarian catering service
 in Philadelphia, offered her Basic Bean Burger along with a peanutty
   1 cup TVP granules (this is a textured vegetable protein.
   It is a soy protein product that is available in most
   health food stores)
   1 scant cup boiling water
   1 Tbs tomato paste or ketchup
   1 16-oz can pinto, kidney, or other beans, drained
   1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
   2 cloves garlic, finely minced
   1/2 tsp oregano
   1 Tbs tarmari or soy sauce
   1 tsp sweetener
   Salt and pepper to taste
   Whole wheat flour for dusting
 Pour boiling water over TVP and tomato paste in a bowl.  Stir and let
 rest for 10 minutes.  In food processor, combine TVP mixture and
 remaining ingredients except for flour.  Pulse until mixture is almost
 a puree.  Dust hands with flour and shape mixture into 6 burgers.
 Dust them lightly in flour.  Layer the burgers with sheets of waxed
 paper and refrigerate for at least one hour.  Cook on a gill covered
 with foil for about 10 minutes on each side.(p)
