Awesome Beet Burger

What You'll Need


½ cup sunflower seeds

1 small onion, diced

2 large carrots, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

8 oz cremini mushrooms, chopped

1 cup cooked lentils

1 cup rolled gluten-free oats

½ cup grated beets

3 Tbsp soy sauce or gluten-free tamari

3 Tbsp tomato paste

2 Tbsp ground flax seed

1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

½ tsp smoked paprika


How to Make It


1 Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

2 Toast the sunflower seeds in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring often. Cook until browned and fragrant, then remove from the skillet.

3 In the skillet, combine diced onion, carrots, mushrooms and garlic. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the carrots are soft.

4 In a food processor pulse the toasted sunflower seeds until they form a course powder. Add the sautéed veggies and remaining ingredients, then pulse until the mixture is well combined. Be sure to stop processing before the mixture becomes a paste.

5 Prepare a sheet pan by lining it with parchment paper. Divide and shape the mixture into 6 burgers.

6 Bake for 25-30 minutes. These veggie burgers freeze well.
