Sunflower Burgers

Sunflower seeds are absolutely laden with vitamin E, a fat-soluble antioxidant vitamin that our bodies need. Sunflower seeds also contain magnesium (think heart, bone, and nerve health and energy production) and vitamin B1 (thiamine) (also energy and nerves).

Whether you are honoring "Meatless Monday" or just craving a nice plant-based burger, you'll love these.

Serves 6

  • 2 cups sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Add all ingredients to food processor and process until chunky paste-like consistency develops. Divide mixture into 4 to 6 balls and form into patties. Brown patties on both sides in a lightly oiled or nonstick skillet. You may also choose to cook the patties in a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes.

Other options include adding about 2 eggs to the mixture, topping with cheese or adding 1/2 cup grated cheese to the mixture.
