Prepared to be amazed. Veggie burgers can sometimes be a little dry or dense, but this beet burger recipe delivers one that is moist and surprisingly light. The texture is perfect, the spices just right, and every single ingredient is as clean as can be. Win.Win.Win.
Typically, when I make beets, I just roast them and eat them on their own or on top of a spinach salad. But, since I had an abundance of beets in my fridge (I can’t walk past a Whole Foods or Farmer’s Market without going in), I decided to try something new.
NOTE: While the recipe itself is quite quick to make, it assumes you already have cooked brown rice and roasted beets on hand, which both take about 40 minutes to cook (but less than 5 minutes to prep). So, I would suggest making the brown rice and roasting the beets earlier in the day, or even the day before, so they are ready to go when it’s burger time.
Both beets and brown rice are great foods to make larger batches of, and save for use in other dishes throughout the week. So, even though this recipe calls for 1 beet and 1 cup of cooked brown rice, I would make more, and save the rest for salads and side dishes.
