1 cup sunflower seeds
¾ cup brown rice or quinoa (dry)
1 cup beet, grated
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup onion, diced
1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
¼ tsp sea salt
1 pinch black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. In a pot, combine ¾ cup of brown rice and 1 ½ cups of water. Bring to a boil, cover the pot and simmer for 25 minutes until the rice is fully cooked.
3. In a food processor, combine all of the ingredients and blend until a sticky mixture forms.
4. Shape the mixture into patties, place on a baking sheet linked with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. The burgers should be crunchy yet still moist and soft.
