Easy and Healthy Beetroot and Chickpea Burgers

Be prepared to fall in love. I’ve made these beetroot and chickpea burgers for seven of my friends now, and all of them loved them. If you’re vegan – you can have these without the goat’s cheese and add 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast into your burger mix.

I love using beetroot in my recipes; not only does it make them so beautiful and super tasty, but beetroot is also low in fat, full of vitamins and minerals and packed with powerful antioxidants – a health-food titan. Try these hearty burgers you’ll love if you are into veggie burgers.

  • 220 grams beetroot peeled and grated
  • 400 grams chickpeas drained
  • ½ medium red onion finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons parsley chopped
  • 90 grams goat’s cheese
  • 3 tablespoons almonds ground


  • Place your chickpeas in a big dry bowl and mash slightly (not too much, you still want some chunky bits in there)
  • Fry the diced onions until soft, then add the crushed garlic and grated beetroot. Cook for about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the beetroot mixture into the bowl with the chickpeas, add apple cider vinegar, chopped parsley and ground almonds and mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 and portion them into burgers. If you’re finding it difficult to form the burgers, add a bit more ground almonds.
  • Place the burgers in the refrigerator to set for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Bake the burgers for 25 minutes in the oven, then add your slice of goat’s cheese on top and put it back in the oven for another minute.
