Mega Beetroot Burgers

My favourite burger recipe.

Thursday, June 26, 2014

3 tbsp olive oil

1 red onion, finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

2 raw beetroot, peeled and grated

1 courgettes, grated

2 large carrot, grated

100g porridge oats

400g tin chickpeas, drained

3 tbsp tahini paste

1 large free-range egg

4 spring onions finely sliced

3 tbsp chopped coriander

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

To serve:

Wholeweat sourdough buns, split and toasted

Chickpea Hummus

Avocado slices

Beansprouts

Shredded red cabbage

 

40 mins
Serves 6

Beetroot are easy enough to grow, and there is a huge selection of varieties to choose from like pale pinks, candy-striped and even golden yellow. These vegetarian burgers are a great way of showing them off. {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

        yes.

    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. :)
