beetroot burger recipe


Makes: 4

For the burger:

  • 1 small white onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 150g cooked beetroot
  • 150g cooked quinoa
  • 150g wholemeal breadcrumbs (you can simply blend toast to make breadcrumbs)
  • 2-3 tbsp. barbecue sauce
  • Pinch salt and pepper

For the rest:

  • 4 burger buns
  • 1 small white onion (thinly sliced into rings)
  • 1 tsp. Coconut Oil
  • 8 tbsp. vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Sriracha or your favourite hot sauce
  • ½ tsp. mustard


1. First, make the caramelised onions. Pan fry onion slices from 1 white onion on a low to medium heat with a splash of oil for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 tbsp. unrefined sugar halfway through to aid the caramelisation process.

2. While waiting, place onion and garlic into a blender and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add beetroot, cooked quinoa, breadcrumbs*, barbecue sauce, salt and pepper and process until fully combined.

*To make your own quick and easy breadcrumbs, simply toast bread until deep golden-brown, but not burnt, then blend the toast up in a food processor until you get breadcrumbs.

3. Place a pan on a medium to high heat with the coconut oil, then pan fry the burgers for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway.

4. To make your vegan burger sauce, mix vegan mayonnaise, Sriricha and mustard in a bowl. Pop the patties into buns, top with caramelised onions, and smother with vegan burger sauce. Bliss.
