Beet Burgers

This recipe is a family favorite, and we hope it will soon be yours as well! Usually near the end of the season, we make a huge recipe (10x!), form it into patties and freeze them.

Wash well, peel and grate to equal:

· 2 C grated beets

· 2 C grated carrots

Peel and chop 1 med onion, finely

Place all vegetables in a big bowl.

Grind or chop to equal:

· 1 C roasted walnuts or sunny seeds

· ½ C roasted sesame seeds

Add to the above and mix well:

· 1 C cooked basmati or other rice

· 1 C grated cheddar cheese

· 3-4 large cloves garlic, minced

· ¼ C fresh parsley, chopped

Using a fork, whip together in a small bowl:

· 2 large eggs

· 2 Tbs soy sauce or shoyu

· ¼ C olive oil

Pour into the beet-carrot bowl. Add and mix well:

· 3 Tbs whole wheat flour

Salt and pepper to taste.

In a big skillet over medium heat, warm oil. Form the beet mixture into 3 inch patties or drop heaping tablespoonfuls into hot oil and sauté until golden.

Serve on big buns!
