Gluten Free Beetroot Burgers

I had a glut of beetroot and was trying to think of innovative ways of using it up and was inspired by the Gosh Free From Burgers I had a while back and thought i’d try my hand at making something similar. As much as I love the Gosh Beetroot Burgers, I do think these are better! There, i’ve said it now! Please give them a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:-

  • 450g raw beetroot, peeled and grated.
  • Bunch of spring onions, chopped.
  • Small handful of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped.
  • Zest of 1 lemon.
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • 1 egg.
  • 4 tablespoons of rice flour.
  • 100g feta cheese.
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil for shallow frying.

Method:-

  1. The first step is to remove as much moisture from the grated beetroot as possible. To do this, place the grated beetroot in a sieve over a large bowl and using a triple layer of kitchen paper press down to squeeze out as much of the beetroot juice as possible (keep the juice if you like as a little health tonic but it’s not needed for this recipe).
  2. Put the grated beetroot into another large bowl and add the spring onions, mint, lemon zest and garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the egg, feta and 3 tablespoons of the rice flour and stir through until well combined.
  4. Put the remaining 1 tablespoon of rice flour onto a plate and using your hands divide the mixture into 4 burgers patting down into the rice flour to coat both sides.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the beetroot burgers on a low to medium heat for 5 minutes on one side before carefully flipping over and cooking for a further 5 minutes.
  6. Serve alongside homemade wedges and salad…..yum!

    1. Oh wow they really do taste so good! Beets and Beetroot are the same (I’ve double checked on google tonne absolutely certain – good old google!) it’s weird we have different names for the same things in different countries, it makes it so confusing! πŸ€”
