A few weeks ago Brent must have had a really slow day at work because he emailed me a long list of recipes to try out at some point. Included in that list was this link for the “Best Ever” veggie burgers. I like black bean burgers, but I was curious about the added beets and brown rice. I made a batch of them last night, and I don’t know if I’m willing to call them the best ever, but I really enjoyed them. Plus, they were pink!
I did, however, make a few changes. First, I shredded the beets rather than dicing them. It just seemed easier. Also, once it was all mixed, I had doubts about the ability of the burgers to hold together so I added 2 beaten eggs and increased the flour to 1/2 cup. I think my changes worked out for the best. A complete burger, topped with pickles!
At first Brent and I thought the burger seemed a little bland, but the more I ate, the more it grew on me. By the last couple bites, I was like “Wow. This is really good!” The burger held together beautifully. Along with some roasted orange cauliflower, this made for a very satisfying meal. We have leftover mix to make more burgers for a quick dinner tomorrow after clinical.
