  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub sweet potato, and prick with a fork. Bake until tender, about 40 minutes. Remove from oven, and peel when cool enough to handle. Transfer to a large bowl, mash, and set aside.

  • Meanwhile, rinse millet. Bring 2 1/2 cups water to a boil; add millet and 1 teaspoon salt. Cover, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer until all the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and add to mashed sweet potato; mix to combine.

  • Place carrot and celery in a food processor; pulse to chop finely. Transfer from processor to a small bowl. Pulse onion and garlic until finely chopped, and add to carrot and celery. Heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic, onions, celery, and carrots; cook until onions are translucent, about 7 minutes. Add to millet mixture; stir to combine.

  • Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt and peas; cook until tender but still firm, about 3 minutes. Drain; transfer peas to a bowl of ice water for 1 to 2 minutes. Drain again, and combine with chickpeas in a food processor; pulse to chop medium-fine. Add to millet mixture.

  • Add coriander, cumin, fennel, cayenne, flour, sunflower seeds, lemon juice, chives, parsley, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and pepper. Mix well, and form into 8 patties.

  • Heat 2 teaspoons sesame oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add four patties, and cook until golden brown and heated through, 7 to 8 minutes per side. Keep warm in a low oven; repeat with remaining 2 teaspoons oil and patties.

  • Serve immediately with sprouts and tahini sauce on buns brushed with olive oil and toasted. Serve Grilled Pineapple and Avocado Salsa on the side.

These are my fav martha burgers! It's a heck long recipe, but there's so much goodness in there! And you can take creative license and throw whatever you want in, and they're always good!
