A delicious, super healthy veggie burger made using beets, hemp seeds and sunflower seeds. Easy and quick to make under the grill

INGREDIENTS 
  • 1/3 cup hulled hemp seeds
  • 2/3 cup shelled sunflower seeds
  • 2 small - medium beetroots
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 heaped teaspoon dried parsley
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream
  • 3 tablespoons of hemp seeds (keep separate from the first lot above)
  • 3 tablespoons of sunflower seeds (keep separate from the first lot above)
  • 4 tablespoons of oats
INSTRUCTIONS

 

  1. Grind 1/3 cup of hemps seeds and 2/3 cup of sunflower seeds down to a coarse meal consistency. You can use a nut/seed mill, food processor, power blender for this.
  2. Grate two beetroots. It's fine to leave the skin on beets (I always do), as long as you take the rough bit off at the top of the neck.
  3. Put the ground seeds and grated beetroot into a food processor. Add the salt, cumin, parsley, pepper, ground coriander and onion powder. Blend processor for a few seconds to bring everything together. It should be a rustic blend (not a puree). If you have a small processor you might have to do it in batches. This also works with a hand-blender (although a bit more effort and bland unblocking of the blade required).
  4. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add in the coconut cream, oats and final 3 tablespoons of whole shelled hemp seeds and 3 tablespoons of sunflower seeds. Mix everything together with a spoon until everything is evenly combined.
  5. Shape into patty shapes. The mixture will be really moist (see video) although it should hold together easily. (If you don't have a food processor and your mix is really chunky, then be sure to press it all firmly together.)
  6. You can pop these in the fridge until you are ready to cook them. Putting them in the fridge will also help them to firm up a little (although it's not essential). If you want to stack them into more than one layer (i.e. in a container) then separate them with baking paper.
  7. When ready, carefully place them onto a wire grill tray. Grill under a medium to low heat for about 10 minutes on each side, or until nicely tanned. Take care to be gentle when turning over - they hold together well, but you can't be rough with them either.
  8. Pop onto your favourite burger bun and top with delicious toppings and munch

"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?"
