These are tremendously tasty and satisfying. You can even serve them for company and they don't have to be served between two pieces of bread, they go well as a side dish for many other things!
1 cup cooked lentils
1/2 cup cracked wheat cooked till it is soft, like rice (drained)
1/2 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup brown rice, cooked (could be leftovers)
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast (this is not baker's yeast but a special yeast you buy to season food at health food stores and specialty stores)
Salt to taste
1/4 cup gluten flour (Do Pep) (If you are allergic to gluten flour, substitute it with 1/2 cup cornstarch)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. garlic powder
1 medium red onion, peeled and chopped
3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
1/2 cup sweet green and red peppers, seeded and chopped
1 medium sized tomato, seeded and chopped
3/4 cup water
In a blender, process rice, lentils, cracked wheat, onion, sweet peppers and tomato with half of the water till smooth.
Scrape into a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mixing well and incorporating the water in little by little so that the mixture will
not be runny. Form steaks with your hands and flatten them. Cook them in a skillet, barely "painted" with olive oil till golden brown on both sides.
Serve with your favorite sauce.
