of a Granny Smith apple to the wonderful crunch of fresh vegetables.

finely. Cook cracked wheat in 1 cup boiling water for 1 minute. Remove
from heat and cover. grate the zucchini, carrot, and apple. Place shreds
in a dish towel and squeeze out excess moisture. Combine with chopped
beans. In a food processor blend chickpeas, onions, garlic, tahini, curry
powder, chili powder, salt, pepper, and canola oil until smooth. Add to
shredded mixture. Drain cracked wheat into strainer, pressing with back of
spoon to extract excess liquid. Add to bowl with vegetables. Add bread
crumbs. Refrigerate for one hour. With wet hands, shape into 4 burgers.
