How to Prepare Red Quinoa and Beet Burger [Vegan]

  1. Preheat the oven to 357°F.
  2. Place the beet cubes on a lined baking tin, rub with olive oil and roast for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  4. Place the roasted beets in a food processor and pulse two or three times - you need some texture for the burgers, so make sure you don't mash them completely.
  5. Transfer the beets to a large bowl, add all the other ingredients and stir to combine. If the texture is too mushy add more bread crumbs until you obtain the desired consistency.
  6. With slightly wet hands, shape the burgers and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes on one side, then flip over and bake for 15 more minutes.
  8. Place the sweet potato strips on a lined baking sheet, rub with olive oil, then sprinkle with cornmeal and toss to combine.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. They will be ready in the same time with the burgers.
  10. While the burgers are baking, prepare the dressing.Place all the ingredients in the food processor and process to obtain a creamy sauce.
  11. Assemble the burgers immediately after removing from the oven.
  12. Cut the bun in halves, spread bun bases with dressing, add the beet burger and sweet potato fries, top generously with avocado dressing, parsley and put on the bun top. Serve immediately.

  1. Thought these looked AMAZING so I tried out the recipe. I\’m thinking the quinoa was meant to be cooked – which is what I thought, but since it didn\’t say that in the recipe I left it raw and had patties that were partly mushy, partly crunchy that fell apart completely. The tahini-avocado spread is awesome, though, and the burgers tasted good – will definitely try again with cooked quinoa!
