I’ve been attempting to make beet burgers ever since my Mother introduced me for them a few years back. Whole Foods used to create this fantastic version full of crunchy walnuts, beets therefore much flavor; quite often we’d headscarf them straight down after our workout routines.

Sadly, I can’t appear to find exactly the same tasty beet burgers at any Chicago area Full Foods.

Last week my mind wandered to these beet burgers once again. Actually craving them more than peanut butter on the spoon. (In the event that you know me, then you understand that’s A LOT.) Therefore the adventure begun to attempt and create the very best beet burger on earth.

My version includes quinoa, times, walnuts (or pecans!), beets, spices and pigs feet so a lot more! It’s quite an odd combination of ingredients but I really like the way the quinoa crisps through to the exterior; the schedules sweeten the burger yet the spices give it nice flavor. Oh and that pepper jack cheese on top? Required.

I could try out a fresh GO VEGGIE cheese because of this recipe and am completely smitten. As you probably know, I am working with GO VEGGIE over the past two years but Pepper Jack simply so happens to be my absolute preferred flavor yet. It melts and likes just like the genuine deal. Winning on all accounts there.

Here are some helpful tips once you make veggie burgers:

Once you mix jointly the burger and form patties, they should feel firm and hold collectively. The mixture must not be as well moist or sticky. If it’s super sticky (sticks to the hands) add just a little oat flour or breadcrumbs. As you start to make veggie burgers more, you’ll discover how you greatest like your burgers and what you ought to add.

Because they are vegan burgers, you can flavor as you go. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking!

Place 3/4 glass quinoa and 1 1/2 mugs water in a little sauce pan more than high heat, provide to a boil, then cover, reduce heat and cook for approximately 15 minutes or until all of the water continues to be absorbed by the quinoa. Allow the quinoa to great for 5-10 mins.

In a small bowl, mix collectively flaxseed meal and 5 tablespoons of water to create a flax egg. Place mix in refrigerator until prepared to use such that it has time to gel up (to be egg-like).

While the quinoa is cooking, add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to some moderate skillet and place over moderate high temperature. Add onions and saute until translucent, about 4 a few minutes.

Next add in cooked quinoa, onion, cut beets, schedules, walnuts, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and coriander to a food processor and pulse 10-15 times before mixture resembles floor beef.

If you observe that the burger is too moist, feel free to add a tablespoon or two of oat flour, this will help the burger to stay together better.
