Recipe by Kris B.
According to a Providence Journal article, Amara's was a natural food and vegetarian restaurant on Wickenden Street, back in the days before Providence was a major culinary city, and before natural foods became popular. One reader wrote in to the Projo asking for this recipe and one other. I clipped the recipe months ago, and have been meaning to try it out. Serving size & cook time are guesses based on my past veggie burger-making experience.

I have not tried this recipe, but I wanted to say that I lived in R.I. & remember Amara...we used to buy the burgers all the time. They were delicious. I THINK for a while they were offered frozen to take home too. They were outrageously good.

- 2 tablespoons peanut butter or 1 egg
