4 to 5 red beets (1 pound)
1/2 cup cooked organic millet (or brown rice)
1 medium yellow onion, diced small
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free)
2 (15.5-ounce) cans black beans, drained & rinsed
1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
1 Tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoons cayenne powder
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 Tablespoon chives
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds
Salt and pepper, to taste
Vegan and/or Gluten Free Bun
Your favorite lettuce, tomatoes, and/or pickles, to serve
Vegan Blue Cheese
Heat oven to 425 Degree
Lightly grease a roaster. Chunk and season beets with salt & pepper to taste, as well as 1/2 tbsp thyme & parsley.
Process the oats in a food processor until they have reduced to a fine flour. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
Transfer this mixture to a large mixing bowl.
Grate the peeled beets on the largest holes of a box grater. Press and squeeze the grated beets to remove as much liquid as possible from the beets.
Transfer the beets, cooked millet, and seasonings to the bowl with the beans.
Mix all the ingredients until combined. Taste the mixture and add salt, pepper, to taste. Once the mixture is combined, add the oatmeal and coconut flour and mix until you no longer see any dry oatmeal or flour.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or transfer the mixture to a refrigerator container, and refrigerate the burger mixture for a couple hours or overnight.
Continue and shape until you get all your patties. You should have 15 patties. When the patties are done you can cook to order or freeze and use as needed.
Cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes, then flip them to the other side. You should see a nice crust on the cooked side. Cook for another 3 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for a few more minutes until the patties are warmed through. Repeat as needed for the number of patties you want. Once cooked, remove from the pan and place on your favorite buns with toppings and serve. Enjoy!
