I work at the pharmacy and this elderly customer asked if I had any magazines that she could read while I got her prescription ready. She was talking about a health magazine. I saw the cover photo on the magazine was this Beet burger that looked amazing! From that day, I really wanted to try to make a beet burger. I made these beet and quinoa burger patties and they turned out well! Here's a recipe if you want to try making the burger.
1 onion minced
3 garlic gloves minced
2 cups boiled quinoa
2 beet boiled/cooked
some red vine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Once the beet is boiled, mash the beets in a bowl. Remove any excess fluid.
Add onions, cilantro, garlic gloves, juice from a lemon, 1-2 teaspoons of red vinegar.
Add cooked quinoa. Mix well.
Preheat oven at 400 degrees.
Make the beet and quinoa patties. Bake for 20 minutes.
Add cut sweet potato/yam fries in the oven until it browns. It took about 15-20 minutes.
While these are baking in the oven, make the guacamole.
Once the patties and sweet potato fries are done, its time to assemble the burger!
I used whole wheat ciabatta.
Added a layer of freshly cut cilantro.
The beet burger. Topped by guacamole.
And finally the freshly baked sweet potato fries on top! Enjoy!
