How to Make Burgers with a Beet

Step-by-Step

  1. Place 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.
  2. Add 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.
  3. Form 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.
  4. Cook 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.
