Beetroot tastes fantastic when cooked as burgers. I got a simple yet delicious recipe for beetroot burgers. These are very healthy and can be a great alternative to greasy burgers that are very unhealthy.
- 1/2 cup of chopped red onion
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 1 cup of finely grated raw beets
- 1 cup of chopped mushrooms
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon of dried mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander
- 6 mm grated fresh turmeric root
- 1 cup of boiled or washed canned salt-free black beans
- 1 cup of well-dried boiled brown, red or black rice, teff or quinoa
- 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed
- 1 tablespoon of white miso paste
- 1/2 cup of flattened oatmeal, ground into coarse flour
- 1/2 cup of ground walnuts
- 6 whole-grain buns
- Heat 1/4 cup of water in a large frying pan over medium heat.
- Put the onion in it and fry for about 5 minutes until it becomes soft. Add the garlic, then beets and mushrooms.
- Sprinkle with paprika, mustard, cumin, coriander and turmeric. Cook for about 4 minutes, until the liquid is absorbed and the vegetables become soft.
- Put the beans in a large bowl and mash in mashed potatoes.
- Add boiled cereals, flaxseed and miso.
- Mash the mixture again in mashed potatoes, add oats and walnuts, and then the cooked vegetables.
- Stir until the mixture is sufficiently dense and stops disintegrating in the hands.
- Divide it into 6 equal parts and roll it into balls. Then make pellets from balls, place them on a plate and put them in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Cover the pan with a silicone mat or parchment paper and put the patties on it.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Serve hot, with or without buns, and with your favourite seasonings.
