  • 8.8 ounces beets, roasted or boiled
  • 2/5 cup brown basmati rice, boiled
  • 1/2 onion, thinly diced
  • 1/5 cup oat flour (gluten-free if necessary)

  1. Heat some oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until golden, 5-10 minutes.
  2. In a food processor, grate beetroots and reserve. Then process the drained beans until roughly chopped.
  3. In a big bowl, place grated beet, processed beans, rice, oat flour, sautéed onions, spices, salt, and pepper. Mix until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
  4. Refrigerate the mix a couple of hours. Then divide the mix in 4 and shape them into thick burgers .
    Heat a pan over high heat. Add a bit of oil and when hot, add the burgers to the pan. Cook a couple of minutes for each side. If it breaks off when flipping the burgers just pat them back with the spatula.

Pretty tasty but needed more flavor - added garlic and more salt. Very soft, great with vegan sour cream, next time I think I’ll add potatoes and maybe chive.
