Burgers come in many forms but have you had a beet burger before? If not you should give this sweet and smokey spice burger a try--rich and a slight salty flavor.Recipe idea from lesauce.com.and Rachel from benevolentbites, and a little tweaking by me.

How to Make Burgers with a Beet

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place beets in a large bowl.
    Add the garlic to a food processor and pulse to chop; add cashews and pulse until meal is formed.
    Add this mixture to the beets.
  • 2Add all remaining ingredients into the bowl with the beet mixture and combine by mashing with a fork of pastry blender- this helps the beets release some of their juices. and is crucial to getting the perfect consistency.
    If the mixture seems to dry a a bit of red wine or orange juice.
  • 3Form into 4 patties.Place Pre-heat a non-stick skillet-or cast iron skillet- that has been sprayed with not-stick cooking spray (this prevents the beets from sticking because of their high natural sugar); over medium-high heat, then turn down heat to medium before adding the burgers.
  • 4Cook burgers about 5 minutes on each side,turning gently. Serve on whole wheat bun. Add lettuce and lemon sour cream and avocado slices for garnish ,if desired. Enjoy!

    Note:
    I think I will add about 1/4 cup of sour cream or yogurt the next time I make these-instead of the wine. . The texture will be better-In my opinion...try it both ways.
