  • butter
  • 2 medium diced onions
  • 1 clove garlic or garlic salt
  • 1 tablespoon parsley
  • ½ teaspoon basil
  • ½ teaspoon marjoram
  • ¼ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • ¾ cup whole wheat
  • ½ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup of grated zucchini (optional)

Preparing the Wheat:

The night before you make the wheat patties start preparing the wheat.

Put ¾ cup of wheat in the bottom of a thermos. Fill the rest of the thermos with boiling water. Put the lid on the thermos and let the wheat cook overnight. These are also known as wheat berries or flask wheat.

Cooking the wheat this way gives it a chewy, meat texture.

Note: You'll need a thermos that's about 32 oz (1 quart). If you have a large family, you might want to get a larger thermos so you can make a double batch.

Making the Patties

Sauté onions in a little bit of butter and add herbs, salt, and pepper.

Add cooked wheat, breadcrumbs, eggs, and zucchini.

Form into patties and fry in a pan. Brown well.
