beet-burgers recipe

 From:    cgibas@wraightc3.life.uiuc.edu (Cynthia J. Gibas)
 4 large beets
 2 medium onions, whole
 cook these until soft.  When onions are ready, remove them from the beet pot
 and place in a blender, along with:
 5 cloves garlic
 1 T. cumin
 1 T. coriander
 black pepper and salt, or possibly cayenne pepper, to taste
 If possible, blend without adding liquid.  If not, add as little as possible.
 drain and mash the beets (to the consistency of mashed potatoes, I bet it 
 would be nice to have a food processor for this step) and then add the stuff
 from the blender.
 To the beet mixture, slowly add while stirring:
 2 T. guar gum
 gram (chickpea) flour, sifted
 Add gram flour until you have a stiff (but probably still somewhat sticky)
 paste.  Sift out some gram flour onto your work surface.  Pick up balls of
 the veg burger mixture and roll in the flour, then pat them to about 3/4" 
 I cooked them for about 5 minutes on a side, in a frying pan sprayed lightly
 with PAM, but I suspect they could be baked as well.
