Easy Beet, Quinoa, & Black Bean Burgers
The BEST ever plant-based, gluten-free beet burgers. This is an updated version of my first ever recipe from Carolyn's Pantry. I made them super easy to make with only 1 bowl required and minimal baking. Just put everything in the food processor, blend, and bake!
These babies are loaded with flavor and antioxidants, and are great over a salad, in a raw collard greens wrap, or of course in a burger. The beets add a gorgeous color and a fantastic sweetness against the savory notes of the onion, mushrooms, and spices. These come with black beans and cooked quinoa for a punch of protein and are awesome for keeping you sustained throughout the week!

RECIPE (serves 8)
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 3 gloves garlic, chopped - if you don't have time to chop, try the Dorot garlic cubes from Trader Joe's!
- 3 large beets, boiled and skinned
- 1 cup chopped mushrooms - (white button, Portobello, or shitake work well)
- ½ large red onion, diced
- ¾ cup cooked quinoa
- 1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 tsp cumin
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- juice of 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons almond flour
- Making these is super simple. Start by preheating your oven to 400*F.
- Put all the ingredients in a foods processor and blend until combined. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop out the mixture onto the sheet. Form into burger patty shapes before putting in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Bake, then flip and bake again for another 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy! Store in a sealed container for up to a week in the fridge.
