Beetroot, Feta and Coriander Burgers

Sometimes it’s nice to have a meat free healthy lunch or dinner. These burgers were surprisingly filling and tasted delicious. The feta seasoned the beetroot so well and added a really good texture. There is quite a lot of water in beetroot so I had to give mine a good squeeze to get it as dry as I could so the burger wasn’t falling apart or that it had a wet texture. I served men alongside some rocket leaves and a drizzle of olive oil.

Ingredients (makes 4 burgers)

  • 1 large beetroot, peeled and grated
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
  • Small bunch of coriander, chopped
  • Zest and juice of a lime
  • 1 block of feta,
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • Oil for frying, I used groundnut

Directions

  1. Over a sink and preferably wearing latex gloves, squeeze out as much moisture as you can out of the grated beetroot. I used a cloth.
  2. Put the beetroot, garlic, coriander, lime, egg and 2 tbsp of the flour into a mixing bowl and mix well with your hands. Divide the mixture into 4 and shape each one into a burger or Pattie shape. Sprinkle over the remaking flour.
  3. Heat a glue of oil in a frying pan and fry the burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side until they start to brown and get crispy.
  4. Serve with salad. Enjoy.
