Gone are the days of bland, boring veggie burgers! My beetroot patties are earthy from the beetroot and sweet from the carrots making them a wholesome and tasty meat-free alternative. Recipe from my cookbook FRESH!

Heat about 1tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic for 4-5 mins or until softened. Add the grated vegetables and cool, stirring, for about 5 mins until wilted, then drain off any liquid.
Place the oats, chickpeas, tahini and egg yolks in a food processor and pulse to combine. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, stir through the grated vegetables and coriander, and season generously with salt and pepper.
Form the mixture into 6 burgers and chill for about 30 mins (or up to 24 hours). Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook the burgers, in batches if necessary, for about 2-3 mins each side until golden.
Serve the burgers in toasted sourdough buns with the hummus, avocado, beansprouts and red cabbage.

    This sounds amazing I’ve never thought to use beetroot in veggie burgers before!

  • петя спасова

    i saw a guy that uses beetroots in burgers just like you on 24kitchen i will say smart idea,donal….

    • A nice tasty alternative to a traditional burger!

      • петя спасова

        yes.

  • Making these today – can’t wait! Great demo on AM tv this morning :-)

  • Sarah Beth Fredericks

    I first saw this recipe 2 hours and 3 minutes ago…I made this recipe 2 hours and 2 minutes ago! This is a seriously talented guy and a seriously good “burger”!

  • You can leave it out. They might be a bit crumbly though. Or try adding some soaked chia seeds instead.

    Hi, i really want to make this recipe but i have allergies to all legumes, can i make it without the chickpeas? I really want to try it but i can’t :(

    • Hmm might be tricky making these if you can’t have any legumes as they are the bulk of what hold them together. What would you normally replace them with?

  • Mansi

    Made this today. So good. :)
