2 cloves of garlic (chopped)

In a food processor, place all ingredients except olive oil. Blend well until all ingredients are together. Make patties and place on wax paper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to get firm. Rub oil on grill or skillet if inside. Cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Serve with a sliced tomato and a fresh thick slice of mozzarella. Pair with herbed couscous.
