    Beet Burgers

    Veggie burgers have been our thing lately. Easy preparation and being freezer-friendly are just two of the many reasons we can’t stop making them. The other night, I had some beets that I wanted to use and thought, it’s a good time to create a beet burger recipe. Alex and I have seen beet burgers on several restaurant menus, but have yet to try one. Therefore, I can’t tell you how ours stack up against others, but I can tell you that these beet burgers are delicious!

    These grillable beet burgers are vegan and gluten-free. They freeze well, which makes for a quick dinner when you need it.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup raw beets, shredded & packed
    • 1 cup mushrooms, minced & packed
    • 1 cup cooked quinoa, packed
    • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
    • 1/4 cup cornmeal
    • 1/2 cup black beans, drained
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 1 clove garlic (or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder)
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 teaspoons salt

    Instructions

    1

    Shred the beets and mince the mushrooms if you haven't done so already. Let your food processor do all the work for you.

    2

    Add all the ingredients to the food processor and mix until combined. I like to make sure the beans are no longer identifiable.

    3

    Form 6 patties. The mixture will be quite sticky, but don't be intimidated! I like to use a wide-mouth Ball mason jar lid to make uniform patties, which you can read about here. Or, you can get creative with what you have.

    4

    Cooking in a skillet: Heat to medium/medium-high heat. Cook about 10-12 minutes, then flip the burger and cook another 5-8 minutes.

    5

    Cooking on a grill: I recommend freezing the patties for at least an hour before grilling. Then, grill for 10-15 minutes on one side, flip and cook an additional 7-10 minutes. Don't rush flipping these. Flipping too early may result in them losing shape. They will be easy to flip when ready. Also, make sure your grill is really hot when you put them on to sear the burger and prevent it from falling apart.

    If someone can’t use the flax meal. Is there a good substitute?

      I would try oat flour or more beans in place of the flax. Let me know how it goes if you try a substitution!
