The Recipe: Nut Burgers

from "Feeding the Whole Family" by Cynthia Lair

¾ cup sunflower seeds
¾ cup walnuts
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
½ teaspoon sea salt
1 ½ cups cooked brown rice
1 small carrot (or ½ of a large one), grated finely
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
1-2 teaspoons butter
4 whole grain buns

Grind nuts and seeds to a fine meal in a small grinder or food processor. Place ground nuts in a bowl and add cumin, oregano, cayenne, garlic and salt; mix well. Fold in cooked brown rice and grated carrots. Add tomato sauce a little at a time until you get a stiff, but workable texture. Form mixture into patties with moist hands.

Refrigerate patties for a few hours if possible. Lightly coat a skillet with butter and brown patties on both sides. Serve on whole grain buns with your favorite fixin's.

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes (without refrigeration time)
Makes 4 burgers
