Why you’ll love these beet and quinoa patties


💚 It’s a great way to celebrate beetroot and sweet potato especially if you grow your own, plus the nutritional vale of beetroot is amazing and it’s high in antioxidants. Beetroots are one of those vegetables that we always grown in our veggie garden. They are easy, no fuss, a joy to grow and never ask too much of me.

Recipe Tips

Keep some texture and don’t over process your patty mixture.  

Cooking time and heat is important.  Medium-low heat is just enough or your vegan beet burgers will get a little blackened on the outside.

Non-stick skillet with a little oil will ensure your veggie patties cook easily.

Keep your cool – after you’ve blitzed your veggie burger mix, allow them to rest in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. These vegan beetroot patties may seem a little delicate when forming into a patty, but after popping into the fridge and pan frying they’ll stay together perfectly.

STEP 2. Cook your quinoa. When cooked and cooled, place into a large food processor along with all the other ingredients and blitz till a nice meaty kind of consistency.  Try not to over process. Or use a potato masher.



STEP 3. Transfer the beet mixture into a large bowl and form into a burger patties (I made 4 largish ones) and pan fry with a little oil in a small frypan on medium heat being careful not to burn.

How to Serve your burger patties

I chose to eat my burger with a dollop of hummus, lettuce and tomato on a brioche bun. Greg’s was with the lot (not vegan) with egg and bacon.

  • You can add loads of toppings to joosh up the flavor – think relish and gherkins
  • With a side salad and add dollops of hummus, garlic aioli, chili sauce topped with fresh herbs
  • No bun – make your own lettuce wrap and save on carbs and add slices of creamy avocado.
  • Create a smaller sized burger patty and make sliders with crunchy, tangy coleslaw.
  • Vegan options – use vegan mayo and vegan cheese to keep this totally plant based.

Additions and Substitutions

Garlic – if you’re not keen on the garlic feel free to omit.  Roasting a clove of garlic lessens the pungency but still give a nice rounded garlic taste or use garlic powder.

Bread crumbs – I usually try to steer away from adding bread crumbs but a tablespoon or two can help bind the patties together.




Storage and Reheating

Store any leftover veggie beet burgers in an airtight container in the fridge.  To reheat – you can either pan fry or pop onto a baking sheet and warm in the oven.

Microwaving – I probably wouldn’t microwave but if you need to pop in for only 10*15 seconds to see how they go.  Microwaving can make the burger patty go soft.
