Vegan Beetroot Burgers

Saturday, August 12, 2017

These Vegan Beetroot Burgers are sooo good! We didn't expect beetroot could taste so delicious as a burger! We did prefer beets in salads or as a side dish. But WOW ! those little purple patties are worth to try even if you're not vegan.

We tried to make burgers from beets out of curiosity. And we didn't really think it could taste well. And also look good, because how? Those are beets - best for us cooked or baked in a lunch salad or as a side dish for some traditional family meat meal. But you already know we like trying to cook new things, new tastes. This time - vegan burgers!

We already made some vegan burgers, like the classic -  chickpea burger or lentil burger. Those taste really good, but you need lots of spices that they're not too mild. And some mayo or herb sauce are good to serve with them. In opposite to them beet burgers have their own taste, it's intense and we only added chillis.

We used cooked BEET ROOTS, but baked would be good for burgers too. Beets are full of water. To make a perfect texture of the burger dough, we added red BEANS and cooked RICE. All of the ingredients were blended in a food processor - to reach a smooth structure, easy to form burgers.

And here - the dough for the burgers should stay in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This is minimum for rice to pull in water from beets, so the texture of the burgers will be perfect. You can prepare the dough the day before and put in the refrigerator, then bake them next day. If you ignore this part of the recipe, burgers will fall into pieces while you fry them. Trust us, we tried it without the cooling and resting stage and we didn't have beautiful burgers :(

Vegan Beet Root Burgers fit very good as a lunch or a quick dinner. We had it for lunch and we were sooo full then. Couldn't eat anything more. No dessert later. We've had it with a bun, tomato, arugula and cucumber, served with a light yogurt sauce.

Here's 2 options how we eat our burgers. First is classic in a bun with some fresh veggies and a scoop of sauce or mayo. Everybody loves it! You have to admit it. I don't know if I know a person who doesn't love burgers in bun. Well, our mom didn't ever like fast food and burgers, but... she loves the homemade burgers. They taste more like healthy food, maybe they're not a fit dish, but you have all of those fresh veggies and a good, crispy bun.

And our second option for burgers, which is more fit and has less calories, are the burgers on a salad. You have the hot burger with a salad like arugula, cucumber, sometimes grilled veggies or fruits ex. nectarines. Last ones give always some sweetness that we love to break the tastes of the savoury burger.

Vegan Beet Root Burgers have our hearts <3, because they
are CRISPY outside & SMOOTH inside,
are VEGAN,
fit with a BUN or a SALAD.

Let's go to the recipe now :)
