In a food processor, blend cooled walnuts with spices and a pinch of salt and pepper until finely ground.

Divide into burger patties.
Heat grill or grill pan over medium heat and coat lightly with oil. When hot, grill burgers for approx. 2 – 3 min. per side, flipping them carefully and adjusting heat as necessary so they don’t brown too quickly. If you’re using a grill, close lid.
