Hemp & Beet Veggie Burger

 75 g Hemp Seeds (1/3 cup)
 175 g Shelled Sunflower Seeds (2/3 cup)
 2 Beetroots (slightly smaller than tennis balls)
 1 tsp Sea Salt
 ½ tsp Ground Cumin
 1 tsp Dried Parsley
 1 pinch Black Pepper
 1 tbsp Ground Coriander
 2 tsp Onion Powder
 1 tbsp Coconut Cream
 3 tbsp Hemp Seeds (keep separate from the first lot above)
 3 tbsp Shelled Sunflower Seeds (keep separate from the first lot above)
 4 tbsp Oatmeal
1

Grind 75g of hemps seeds and 175g of sunflower seeds down to a coarse meal consistency. You can use a nut/seed mill, food processor, power blender for this. See video to note how I do it with my food processor.

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, oatmeal 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 parchment 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.

Construct your burger and Enjoy!
