  1. Sauté celery, onion, carrots and grated mushrooms until soft in 1 tbsp. oil.  Add seasonings except pepper. Chill completely.
  2. Rice and bulgur can be prepared in advance in a rice cooker or boiled. Rice generally takes about 20 minutes, and bulgur about 15. Once cooked, leave lids on pots and let grains absorb water for about 10-15 minutes. Thoroughly chill.
  3. Make a roux using remaining oil and the all-purpose flour. Allow to cool.
  4. In mixer with paddle attachment combine the sautéed vegetables, oats, rice, bulgur, liquid smoke, roux, egg whites and cheese.  Add pepper.
  5. Divide mixture into 12 equal mini-patties:½ inch thick and 2 ½ round. Or size to your liking.
  6. Bake patties at 325 for about 20 minutes.  For larger patties, allow 5-10 additional minutes.
  7. Pro-Tip:  Make sure to turn patties over halfway through backing to keep an even light brown color.
  8. Serve on a whole wheat bun, or with side salad, peas and simple macaroni and cheese.
