Veggie Burger With Carrot & Beet

Veggie Burger with Carrot & Beet

I know what you’re saying, carrot and beet?  That’s an odd combination to have in a veggie burger.  Says who?

Whether you’re vegetarian or not, this black bean, carrot and beet burger will hit the spot.  Made with black beans, sweet corn, red and yellow onion, garlic, carrots, beet, oats, cumin, coriander, chili powder, cayenne pepper, turmeric, garlic powder and liquid smoke.  Because of the liquid items in the recipe we decided to juice the carrots and the beet to help remove some of the water content.  Saving the juice to have with dinner and you gain all the benefits.

The red from the beet will also give this burger just the right color to look like cooked beef.  The one thing I’ve always craved is the “burger” taste, kind of hard to do with veggies.  The trick is using the “liquid smoke” into the mix.

Freezing the patties before helps to make them stick together a bit better.  YES they will be on the wet side, but that’s where the “juiciness” comes in, just like a traditional burger.  If you don’t want to use them as a burger, you can just fry everything together and spoon it onto lettuce for a lettuce wrap or into taco’s.  Use it anywhere you want a delicious vegan version of meat.
