How to Make Veggie Burgers

Preheat the oven to 375° F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

After grating the zucchini, line a plate with 2-3 paper towels and let the zucchini rest for about 10 minutes, to remove some of the natural moisture.

In a large skillet over medium-low heat, add ½ tablespoon oil, the onions, garlic, and red chili flakes and cook for about 1 minute, or until the garlic is fragrant.

Add the zucchini and carrots, cooking until the onions are translucent (about 6 minutes). Season with salt, black pepper, and Italian seasoning then take the skillet off the heat.

In a food processor, pulse the sunflower seeds, mustard, and chickpeas 2-3 times until the mixture holds together, but still has a lot of texture.

Transfer the chickpea mixture to a large mixing bowl and add in the cooked vegetables, then add the breadcrumbs.

Mix everything together until evenly incorporated. Shape 8 veggie burgers using a half-cup measuring cup and gently flatten them out into about 4-inch circles.
