Sprouted Wheat Burgers

Source: Ecological Cooking
Made: August 13, 2012
Yield: 8 burgers
Time needed: less than 30 minutes if using left-over cooked barley; add 40 minutes to cook barley.

Prior preparation needed:
Start sprouting wheat several days in advance.
Barley can be cooked in advance.

Veggie burgers tend to be more delicate than meat burgers and fall apart more easily.  On the plus side though, they often taste great.  I very much like this combination of flavours.
