– Pour this mixture into a bowl and clean out your blender.
– Grind sunflower and sesame seeds in a high-speed blender or coffee grinder.
– Add your ground seeds and nutritional yeast in with the mixture already in your bowl, and mix everything together with a spatula.
– In a small bowl, assemble your breading mixture by just tossing together your ground flax, chili pepper, and salt.
– To make our patties, use a large soup spoon to scoop it up, and form into a patty shape, coat each patty with your breading mixture, then lay it on your dehydrator sheet, or on a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
– Dehydrate overnight, or bake in an oven for about an hour at 200 degrees F, flip them, and then bake for one more hour.
– Finally, let’s make our BBQ sauce. First add all the liquids – nama shoyu, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, olive oil, into the blender, as well as your spices – paprika, cayenne, and salt. Blend.
– Now add in your tomatoes, onion, and sun-dried tomatoes. Blend again.
