Hi and welcome back to Ria Lives Well!

Easy Beet & Bean Vegan Burger

Let me apologize in advance for these crummy photos 🙂

I’ve been experimenting with vegan burger recipes a lot these days. I actually think I’m getting the hang of it. I love a good burger {big sandwiches in general}, but now that I’m vegan, I can no longer enjoy my favorite meatless burgers. They’re vegetarian. But they definitely aren’t vegan.

So I headed to the kitchen and started cooking.

I’m pleased with my first foray into vegan burgers, pictured above. All I wanted was a simple beet and black been burger with a firm, hearty texture. I wanted it to be simple, with the inclusion of herbs, beans and grains.

It tasted great, and I’m sharing the recipe for this beet and bean burger today. Recipe below. But this is NOT the finished product. I want to improve the flavor. The burger only tasted good when sandwiched between delicious Cobblestone Mill buns and topped with flavorful ingredients. When eaten alone, I wasn’t impressed.

Before I get into this recipe, let me mention my second attempt at vegan burgers.

I made these mushroom and black bean burgers, using vegetables like carrots and celery, grains such as oatmeal and flavored it with sauteed garlic and onions. In the end, this mushroom burger had what the beet and bean recipe was missing: fantastic flavor.

Unfortunately, it lacked in form. Majorly.

It fell apart during my first batch, and when I added more oatmeal flour to bind them, the inside was way too soft. I plan to tweak this recipe and share it later on. Trust me, it’s a killer.

For now, enjoy this vegan burger that tastes perfect both fried and baked {I prefer it fried}.

Easy Beet & Bean Vegan Burger Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can beets
  • 1 cup oatmeal (blended into flour)
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

Blend oatmeal into a flour. Prep vegetables: roughly chop onions, and mince fresh parsley.

In a food processor {or blender}, blend 1 can of black beans and 1 can of beets until roughly blended {not runny, like a dip}. Pour “meat” into a medium sized bowl and add oatmeal. Mix until fully incorporated.

Add the final ingredients: onions, parsley, smoked paprika, sea salt and black pepper.

Shape into patties and pop in the oven at 350 deg. F. for 30 minutes, or place on a skillet and fry until each side is crisp and well-cooked.

You can can double the batch and store half in the freezer for a “lazy day.”
