Beet Burger w/ Black Beans & Quinoa

Beet BurgerThis Beet Burger w/ Black Beans & Quinoa is a colorful, healthy and delicious alternative to traditional veggie burgers. The beets, black beans and quinoa provide 12 grams of fiber, 18 grams of protein and 39% RDV iron.

Beets are very versatile and high in iron. You don’t need to cook them before preparing this recipe. Just grate them in your food processor and they’ll cook up in the oven.

Quinoa is a high protein grain that makes a great binding agent. Be sure to rinse it thoroughly before cooking to remove the saponin coating that gives quinoa a bitter taste.

We opted to bake the burgers in the oven since they’re pretty delicate and come apart easily. Baking them also cuts out the oil needed to fry them in the pan. But if you prefer to fry your beet burger, add a little oil to a large skillet and cook them for a few minutes on each side until crispy.

Pairs well with Oven Roasted Red Potatoes or Vegan Green Beans with Bacon Flavor.
