Amazing Beetroot & Lentil Burgers

Sometimes all you need is a burger. A big, juicy burger. With loads of trimmings and full of yummy ingredients that when whizzed together and made into a patty become so much more than a sum of their parts. 

I’ve decided to go on a bit of a burger journey this Spring & Summer, to try all kinds of different combinations of burgers recipes to see what amazing new burgery tastes I can come up with, to BBQ, grill or just pan fry! 

When making a vegan burger, a protein in the form of a pulse is pretty much essential and lentils are perfect for the base for a burger. They lend a peppery, meaty (in the nicest plantiest way) depth that squishes up easily to form a burger patty. 

Beetroot with its earthy, sweet taste is a natural partner for lentils. It also lends a lovely red colour as well as a juicyness to the burger patty. Add in some fresh herbs and the spicyness of cumin and a hit of chilli and this burger is as delicious as it is easy to make and cook. 

I mean, check out that colour! 

I can’t wait to make more of them.. and create some more yummy burger flavours to bring in the warmer weather.

    Your recipe calls for 300g lentils. I’ve just cooked them and that, to me looks a lot! You sure you got that right?
