Cracked Wheat Burgers with Pickled Onions and Lime Slather

Ingredients
 
Pickled Onions
2
tablespoons olive oil
3/4
cup cracked wheat
3/4
cup water
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1
cup rinsed and drained canned pinto beans
1/2
cup tightly packed cilantro sprigs
3
cloves garlic, minced
1
teaspoon ground cumin
1/4
teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2
cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
2
tablespoons olive oil
6
whole grain bagel tops, toasted (reserve bottoms for another purpose)
 
Lime Slather

Directions

  1. Prepare Pickled Onions.
  2. In a medium saucepan, cook 1/2 cup of the onion in 2 tablespoons olive oil for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in cracked wheat and water. Bring mixture to a boiling, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes or until water is absorbed. Transfer to a medium bowl. Stir in soy sauce.
  3. In a food processor combine beans, walnuts, remaining 1/2 cup onion, cilantro, garlic, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Cover and process with several on-off turns until is combined and paste-like. Stir walnut mixture and bread crumbs into wheat mixture. Stir until combined.
  4. Shape mixture into six 3/4-inch thick patties. Cover and chill for 1-1/2 hours.
  5. Brush both sides of patties with 2 tablespoons olive oil. For a charcoal grill, grill patties on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 8 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as above.)
  6. Serve patties open-face on toasted bagel tops; spoon Lime Slather over patties. With a slotted spoon, remove Pickled Onions from marinade. Place atop Lime Slather. Makes 6 servings.
