Place a small heavy pan over medium heat. Add the sesame seeds and stir until lightly brown and fragrant.  Transfer to a cool bowl.

Return pan to heat, brown the sunflower seeds like you did the sesame seeds.  Transfer to the bowl with the sesame seeds.

Combine the beets, carrots and onion in a large bowl.  Stir in the toasted sunflower and sesame seeds, eggs, rice, cheese, oil, flour, parsley, soy sauce, garlic and cayenne pepper.  Use your hands to mix until well combined.

Shape mixture into 12 patties and arrange them on the baking sheet.

Bake until brown around the edges (about 20 minutes).

Serve alone or on buns.
