Beetroot Burgers

June 26

Gone are the days of bland, boring veggie burgers! My beetroot patties are earthy from the beetroot and sweet from the carrots making them a wholesome and tasty meat-free alternative. Recipe from my cookbook FRESH!

Method
  1. Heat about 1tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic for 4-5 mins or until softened. Add the grated vegetables and cool, stirring, for about 5 mins until wilted, then drain off any liquid.
  2. Place the oats, chickpeas, tahini and egg yolks in a food processor and pulse to combine. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, stir through the grated vegetables and coriander, and season generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Form the mixture into 6 burgers and chill for about 30 mins (or up to 24 hours). Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and cook the burgers, in batches if necessary, for about 2-3 mins each side until golden.
  4. Serve the burgers in toasted sourdough buns with the hummus, avocado, beansprouts and red cabbage.
