Beetroot and Bean Burgers
Makes 5-6 patties
For the burgers:
2 cans of black beans – Drained
1 1/2 cups grated beetroot
1 onion – Finely diced
1 garlic clove – Crushed
1 handful of fresh basil – Chopped
Pinch of salt
For the fillings:
5-6 whole meal buns
5-6 cheese slices
Red onion – Sliced
1 avocado – Sliced
1 tomato – Sliced
Place all burger ingredients in a food processor and pulse to combine. Be careful not to overwork as this will make them too sloppy.
Heat cooking oil in a fry pan on medium heat and place burgers in to cook until browned on each side.
While the burgers are cooking, prepare the fillings and buns.
Buns can be lightly browned under a grill or served fresh. We grilled ours.
Once burgers are cooked, place on bun with the cheese slice on top so the cheese starts to melt.
Pile your choice of toppings on in any order.
Best enjoyed immediately and served with homemade chips or wedges and sauce of choice.
