 ¼ cup Raw Sunflower Seeds, ground
 1 ½ cups Red Onion, chopped
 1 ½ cups Mushrooms, chopped
 4 Garlic cloves, minced
 ½ cup Whole Oats
 2 ½ cups Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed(19 oz can)
 1 ½ cups Beet, grated
 3 tsp Dried Dill Weed
 3 tbsp White Vinegar
 3 tbsp Dijon Mustard
 3 tbsp Ketchup (low-sodium/sugar free)
 ½ cup Cilantro, chopped

Place the sunflower seeds and oats in a food processor, and process on high for 30 seconds until they are broken into small pieces.


Cook the red onion, mushrooms, and garlic in a small amount of water for approximately 5 minutes or until the onion is soft. Add to the food processor.


To the food processor, add the oat, beans, grated beets, dried dill, vinegar, Dijon mustard, ketchup, and cilantro. Blend until the mixture is smooth.


Chill burger batter in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.


Shape the burger with your hands and place it on a lined baking sheet.


Put the baking sheet in the refrigerator for 30 more minutes if you want fluffier, less dense burgers.


Bake them in the oven at 350°F for 15 minutes, then carefully flip the burger and cook for another 15 minutes. There should be a nice golden crust on the outside when the burgers are done cooking.


The number of servings will depend on how big you make your burgers.


You can grill them, bake them in the oven or cook them in a pan.


Chill the mixture before forming into patties to make the batter less sticky.


Before cooking put the burgers on a baking sheet and let sit in the refrigerator to firm up.


Use large lettuce leaves, cabbage leaves, or for a wrap. Top with your favorite condiments.
