More Recipes For Lexi

Gena’s Homemade Sunshine Burgers (yields 5)

1 cup sunflower seeds, ground in a food processor or coffee/spice mill
1 cup cooked brown rice
2 tbsp ground flax seed
2/3 cup chopped carrot
2/3 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onion (optional)
2 tbsp water
1 tsp Herbamare seasoning (or to taste)

Mix the sunflower seeds, brown rice, flax, water, salt, and Spike seasoning in a food processor fitted with the S blade. Process till relatively smooth (it’s cool if there’s still a bit of texture).

Add the chopped veggies and pulse till the burgers are well mixed, but not entirely without visible veggie pieces. At this point, test the texture. If it’s super thick and sticky, add another tbsp or two of water. If it’s moist enough, you’re done!

Shape into 5 patties, and put on a cooking tray sprayed with coconut oil. Bake at 375 for about 35 minutes, flipping halfway through, till both sides are golden brown and the patties are firm.

Enjoy over a salad, on a sprouted grain bun or English muffin, or plain! I ate one of these on an Ezekiel bun fresh out of the oven, in true summer BBQ style.
