2 or 3 medium cooked beets (steamed or roasted)
14oz can of black beans (drained & rinsed)
1 ½ cups cooked brown rice
1 cup flour (can sub GF flour)
1 Red onion
1 hot house tomato
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp soy sauce or Tamari
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp Chili powder
2 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsp maple syrup (or any sweetener of choice)
Salt & pepper to taste
Any bun of your choice
Add the cooked beets, black beans, brown rice into a food processor and pulse til all combined.
Once combined go ahead and add in the spices along with the flour and mix again. At this point the mixture should be a dough like consistency . Form it into patties.
If you notice the mixture is too wet, you may add more flour. If the mixture is too dry you can always add a bit of water or some more beets should do the trick.
Once the patties are formed, place them on a baking tray and put into the refrigerator to set for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
When ready to cook, add oil to a pan, medium high heat, cook on each side for about 2 minutes or until it’s starting to brown nicely then bake for an additional 25 minutes on 325 .
To assemble the burger, add a couple slices of red onion, a slice of hot house tomato and whatever condiments you like. Enjoy!
You can also freeze the extra patties and have a delicious veggie burger anytime you want.
