Recipe: Meatless Beet Burgers
Try this meatless burger using red beets. The mix of quinoa, oats and nuts gives it the perfect texture. You’ll forget it isn’t meat!
Using beets in these meatless burgers gives them a red-meat look without the beef. They also have a chewy texture due to the quinoa, oats and chopped nuts. You can serve on a whole grain bun with a thick tomato slice and a side dish of fruit salad topped with yogurt.
