Beetroot Burgers

Ingredients

This should make enough for about 5 burgers

  • 5 bread rolls or buns
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs (or about 4 slices of bread to make crumbs from)
  • 1/2 cup of brown rice
  • 2 beetroots
  • 2 tea spoons of vegan bouillon or vegetable stock powder
  • a good dash of cumin
  • white pepper
  • onion powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • a splash of agave
  • soy sauce
  • a little Cooking oil
  • optional lettuce, tomato, avocado, and other burger extras

Method

  1. For the burgers make a cup of bread crumbs. I always make my own by getting some good bread and cutting it into slices and putting it in the oven at 180C / 355F until crispy. Should be about 4 slices.
  2. Then in a pot cook half a cup of brown rice with a cup of water.
  3. Once cooked add the rice, the bread crumbs, 2 grated beetroots, 2 tea spoons of vegan bullion or vegetable stock powder, a good dash of cumin, white pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper and a splash of agave and soy sauce into a food processor with a metal S blade on it and whiz up to combine.
  4. The mix is ready when it sticks together and holds shape. Pull out sections and shape into patties (should make about 5) and rest them on a plate in the fridge for half an hour before cooking in a fry pan or on a BBQ with a little bit of oil!
  5. Put in a bun with your favourite burger extras

Growing up on a small farm in northern Victoria, veganism was the furthest thing from my mind, other than being something I couldn’t spell. I thought the idea of it sounded ridiculous. I was well indoctrinated into the idea that animals are a commodity.

At age 19 I went vegetarian for my health, and a couple of years later while doing research into vegetarianism I stumbled across information about veganism. The more I read the more it made sense, and I started putting it into play.

I didn’t know any other vegans at the time and wouldn’t for a long time, until I become part of the community many years later. I realise now it was silly but I was ashamed to call myself vegan at the time, and even though I lived the life I never called myself one, but I spent my days happily learning the ins and outs of my new life.

My health improved and I became fitter and stronger than I ever thought I could be. And I was happy. Now, many years later I feel at home and very comfortable with my choices, and relish the vegan community that I have joined. I now work as a career firefighter with a passion for the kitchen. I hope my recipes that I share will help you to embrace and enjoy your choice to live a compassionate life.
