Beet Burgers

Beet Burgers

 

Ingredients;

1 beet, shredded (about ¾ cup)

2 carrots, shredded (about ¾ cup)

1/2 red onion

1 clove garlic

3/4 c raw walnuts

1/4 c raw pumpkin seeds

1 c cooked lentils

1 tsp hot paprika

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp sea salt

½-¾ c oat flour or oat bran

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°, or heat your grill.

Use your food processor with the shred blade to easily shred beets and carrots. Place shredded veggies in a large bowl. In the food processor with the chop blade, pulse the red onions and garlic until minced. Place in the bowl with the beets. Place the walnuts and pumpkin seeds into the processor and blend until the mixture is finely chopped, place in the bowl. Finally, add the lentils and spices to the processor, and pulse to combine. Don’t puree the lentils to keep some texture. Stir the lentils into the large bowl, followed by the oat flour. Stir well to combine all of the ingredients and season with more sea salt to taste.

Form into tightly packed patties, and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, or on the grill. If baking, cook for 35 minutes. Grill for 8-10 minutes each side.

Serve with avocado on a bun or over salad greens.
