Burgers are one of my favourite foods! I love them with burger sauce, sliced beef tomatoes and jalapeños. Served with Cajun sweet potato wedges and salad, it’s the perfect balance of delicious and nutritious. I make a big batch of beet burgers, cook them all and then freeze individually for a later date.
Give these a go they are worth the effort!

- Heat the oven to 200c 180c fan. Add the beetroot and thyme to an oiled baking tray and place in the oven and cook until soft.
- In a pan add the onion and garlic and soften. Add the chili powder, smoked paprika and season.
- Add the black beans to the pan and warm through.
- In a food processor add the ingredients from the pan, quinoa and cooked beets.
- Add flour as needed to bind the mix. If too wet add more if too dry stop.
- Split the beet burger mix evenly and form into patties.
- Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper and oil. Add the patties and brush the tops with more oil. cook for 15 minutes and turn over. Cook for a further 15 minutes, this should dry them out. the depth of the burger will affect this. The thicker the burger the longer it will need in the oven and vice versa. NB. If you are planning to freeze some only cook them for 20 minutes and place between greaseproof to freeze. When defrosted cook for 20 minutes.
