Vegan Burger Recipe – Beets!

vegan burger recipe

A really great vegan burger recipe is hard to come by.  Most veggie burgers are held together by eggs, or, let’s be honest, they aren’t really held together!  Many vegan burgers, veggie burgers, and bean burgers have I had that ended up a pile of mush on my plate after just a few cuts.  Getting the right moisture, vegetable ingredients, and spices to not only hold your burger together but make it taste great as an alternative are key factors in a great vegan burger recipe!  If you enjoyed my vegetarian sloppy joe recipe and you like beets, you are sure to love this!

Ingredients:

2 cups of juice pulp from 1 large or 2-3 small beets, a handful of fresh kale, and 2-3 carrots

2 flax egg substitutes 

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/4 teaspoon ground mustard

coconut oil for cooking (optional)

Directions:

  1.  Process red beets, kale and carrots through your juicer and set aside (sip while preparing the rest of the meal, enjoy with a squeeze of fresh lemon, freeze for later use, or use as the basis of a great tasting strawberry beet juice smoothie!)
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. Measure two cups of vegetable pulp from your juicer and mix together in a large bowl, to insure all vegetable pulps are evenly mixed.
  4. In a smaller bowl, combine flax eggs and spices, mixing well.
  5. Knead spicy flax sauce into vegetable pulp until thoroughly combined.
  6. Roll into balls and press into patties, arranging evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip, and cook for a remaining 10 minutes.  The burgers should be a little browned on either side, and stick together nicely (be careful when flipping!)
  8. Top with your favorite sautéed mushrooms, peppers, onions, or vegan cheese, and serve on a bed of lettuce, spinach, or your favorite roll!

Note:  You can alternatively cook on a stovetop in a skillet or pan with a little coconut oil to prevent sticking, but I find the best results have come from oven baking – plus, no oil!

Eat. Pray. Love.

To Eat Pray Love is a three-fold site, seeking to offer encouragement to women through healthy recipes, bible study, and prayer and testimony.  The idea is that diet and exercise alone, though making you feel good, will only leave you searching for more – searching for that God-shaped hole that only He can fill.  The good news is that the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, came not only to save His people, Israel, but the whole world through Him.  The GOOD NEWS is that no matter what your blood line, no matter what your nationality, if you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, as replacement for your sins, He will save you from the death you deserve.  The GOOD NEWS is that no matter who you are or where you are, we can all be grafted into the family of God’s people, Israel.  God didn’t just promise restoration to His people Israel, we promised it to the whole world!  Amen!

Do you want to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior today?  Here are some related posts, or please contact me so I can be praying for your as you walk through this journey of seeking the Truth.  I am also happy to answer any questions you have about God, the Bible, Jesus, your faith – any thing!  God bless you – I am praying for you!
