Title:   Sunny Bean Burgers
Category:   Main Dishes - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   Nutritarian Cookbook
Small amount of olive oil
1/4 c raw sunflower seeds
2 c cooked kidney or pinto beans or canned no-salt-added or low-sodium kidney beans- drained
1/2 c minced onion
2 T low-sodium ketchup
1 T wheat germ or old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 t chili powder
Directions:   Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly oil a baking sheet with a little olive oil on a paper towel.

Chop the sunflower seeds in a food processor or with a hand chopper. Mash the beans in the food processor or with a potato masher and mix with the sunflower seeds. Mix in the remaining ingredients and form into six patties.

Plate the patties on the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly, until you can pick up each patty and compress it firmly in your hands to re-form the burger. Return the patties to the baking sheet, bottom side up, and bake for another 10 minutes.

If desired, they can also be cooked on the grill.
