Cracked Wheat Burgers with Pickled Onions and Lime Slather
Ingredients
  •  Pickled Onions
  • 1  cup  chopped onion
  • 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
  • 3/4  cup  walnuts, toasted
  • 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.
