Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 7-8 beets, small to medium in size
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup feta cheese
  • ½ cup egg whites
  • 2-3 T liquid smoke
  • 2 T garlic, minced (about 4-6 cloves)
  • 2 T soy sauce or gluten free tamari
  • *optional: salt, pepper, fresh herbs (basil)
Instructions
  1. Pulse beets, oats, onion, and garlic in a blender or food processor. The idea is to create a beet pulp or puree type consistency.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, soy sauce, egg whites, feta cheese and liquid smoke.
  3. Add in the beet pulp, and mix well. Let stand at least 20-30 minutes in the fridge to allow the flavours to blend well.
  4. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Use an ice cream scoop, measuring cup or simply get your hands dirty to make 12 burger patties.
  5. Fry in a non-stick or oiled pan for about 7-10 minutes per side on medium heat. Watch closely as these will burn if left for too long!
  6. For freezer prep, simply freeze the patties directly on the parchment/baking tray until hard. Place the patties in a freezer safe ziplock bag or container for future use.
