Summer Corn Veggie Burgers with Sunflower Seed Pesto

Summer Corn Veggie Burgers with Sunflower Seed Pesto

There's nothing quite like fresh summer fruits and vegetables. I love walking into the grocery store or farmers market during the summer months and seeing stacks of fresh berries, corn on the cob, tomatoes and summer squashes. This recipe celebrates sweet delicious summer corn.

I wasn't always a fan of fresh corn (gasp...). I know I'm in the minority, but the process of eating corn on the cob is  just too hands on and messy for me - particularly when done in public. I used to just avoid eating it all together, but now I just cut it off the cob so I can enjoy those buttery sweet kernels without all the napkins...and floss.

I fancied up my burger by adding some roasted tomatoes and a healthy smear of sunflower basil pesto - other delicous summer flavors. But I must say, these patties are also delicious when eaten on their own - no bun needed! While they still need to be handled gently, the patties stay together well and develop a nice pan fried crust on the outside. A portion of the corn kernels are left out of the food processor and manually stirred in for texture. Some of those kernels hit the hot pan and get nice and carmelized...win!

The list of ingredients and instructions may seem long, but these come together quickly not including the hour chill time. While it can be annoying to get out your trusty but oh so heavy food processor, it really does most of the work in this recipe with multiple uses.
