Almost everyone loves a good burger and so do I. There are of course many options for plant based burgers but beet is certainly one of my favourite ingredients. It adds a nice colour and earthy flavour. Even if the burger patties look just like raw meat I can assure that no animals were harmed for making this beet burger!
Ingredients (4 burgers, 1,25 € each)
- 1 raw beet (about 150 g), peeled and diced roughly
- 1 can kidney beans (400 g), drained
- 75 g rolled oats
- 1/2 onion, peeled
- 1 garlic clove
- 1 tsp (smoked) paprika powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 4 burger buns of choice
- 1 large tomato
- 1 avocado
- 4 tsp vegan mayo
- mixed salad
- olive oil
1. Blend all the ingredients for the burger patties with a food processor or blender. Divide and shape the mixture into 4 burger patties. You can place them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up but it’s also possible to use them straight away. Just be more careful.
2. Heat a good splash of olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the burger patties and fry from both sides for about 8 minutes in total until golden brown and crispy.
3. Wash and dry the salad. Slice the tomato. Halve, de-seed and peel the avocado. Then cut into thin slices.
4. Assemble the beet burger (from bottom to top: bun, salad, tomato, beet patty, avocado, mayo, bun) and enjoy!
Do these stick together well when frying? I always find mine fall apart!

Yeah, they do! It helps to put them in the fridge a while to firm up. And to reduce the risk of damaging them, try to flip them over in the pan only once or twice and not 5 oder 6 times. 😉 You can even bake them in your oven instead of frying them in the pan. Hope that helps. xx Andi
