This recipe from Cooking Light Magazine July 2013 page 88 is by : Julianna Grimes,Senior Food Editor She says,"For the patty,I went with a mix of golden beets and chewy whole-grain brown rice, which holds together nicely and them crumbles in the mouth like ground beef." I have not made this yet, but I intend too- I love beets and this looks so delicious...I like her addition of the chopped toasted walnuts and blue cheese dressing.
