1/2 cup raw almonds

Grind onion in food processor. Add almonds and cashews, and pulse to a chunky consistency. Add rice, peanut butter, garlic, egg and soy sauce. Pulse until smooth and the consistency of ground hamburger. You might need to add a little water as you go to keep mixture loose.

Shape mixture it into 4 burgers. Put oil in nonstick or well-seasoned cast iron skillet and turn to medium. When oil is hot, add burgers to skillet. Cook about 5 minutes each side. Lower heat a bit and cook 3 or 4 minutes more, until firm.
