Red Beet Burger
This red beet burger shows that you don’t need meat to enjoy a good burger! I really love vegetarian burgers, as you might know if you’ve visited my site before. I’ve created several veggie burger recipes (like a sweet potato burger and a falafel burger) and I went on a quest to find the best veggie burger in Amsterdam.
Below is the recipe for 4 red beet burgers. The burger patties are vegetarian, vegan and gluten free.
2 red beets (peeled and cooked)
30 grams oatmeal (1/3 cup)
1 red onion, chopped
1 scallion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
200 gr green/brown lentils (cooked, drained and cooled)
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Put half of the oatmeal in a small bowl and add 80ml (1/3 cup) of boiling water.
Heat some olive oil in a small skillet. Add the onion, scallion and garlic and sauté over medium heat until are soft and beginning to turn golden.
In a food processor mix the beets, lentils, onion mixture, thyme, paprika and both the wet as the dry oatmeal. If desired you can add some salt and pepper.
Using a cup or a cooking ring you can now form burger patties of the mixture.
You can fry the burgers in a skillet, but I used my oven for them. Put the patties on a baking sheet and put them in the oven for 20 minutes. Use a spatula to flip them and bake them for 15 more minutes.
I put my beet burgers on a brown bun with hummus, lettuce, tomato and avocado.This burger tastes great with sweet potato fries.
This burger is also great for Christmas because it has the red and green Holiday colors.
If you like red beets you might also like my red beet quinoa or red beet hummus.
