Sunburgers are one of these hippie foods that my parents have had around forever but we don't make much anymore, with soy products being much easier to find and cook. There's a fair amount of prep time involved to chop all the veggies and form the patties, but I remember them being pretty good, so make it if you have the time sometime.

1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 T finely chopped onion
1 T finely chopped parsley
1 T finely chopped green pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 T oil
1/4 cup V8 juice
1 cup ground sunflower seeds
2 T wheat germ
1/2 t salt
1/2 t basil

Combine all ingredients. Divide and shape dough into patties (6-8). Arrange patties on a greased cookie sheet or baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes on each side.

Makes 8. Aprox 125 calories, 11 grams fat each.
