Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Rinse and drain chickpeas very well and dice beets and onion.
  3. Add chickpeas, beets, onion, garlic, oat, nutritional yeast, parsley, liquid smoke, salt, and pepper to a food processor and process until everything is mixed well, but still a little chunky.
  4. Divide the mixture into 8 portions and shape into patties. If the mixture is too wet, add a couple of tablespoons of oat flour first.
  5. Arrange patties on the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, turning them over once halfway through baking time.
  6. Serve on buns (gluten-free, if you prefer) with red onion, avocado, tomato, greens, and garlicky maple-tahini.
