Beetroot and feta burgers

A simple and reliable beetroot burger recipe.
Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 400 g beetroot peeled
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 200 g feta cheese crumbled
  • 5 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • After you have peeled your beetroot, grate it coarsely into a bowl.
  • Squeeze handfuls of the grated beetroot to get some of the liquid out. It will look like a crime scene! You can drink the juice.
  • Next, mix the beetroot, garlic, flour and egg, along with salt and pepper.
  • When well combined, stir in the feta.
  • Form the mixture into four burgers with your hands.
  • Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat with 3 tbsp olive oil and fry the burgers for 10 minutes on each side until crisp on the outside and cooked through.

Notes

Depending on how thick your burgers are, you might find the middle of them is quite squidgy and raw, which is fine if you are OK with raw egg. One option is to pre-bake them in the oven on a low heat for 15 minutes before frying them to finish them off. This is also a good idea if you are barbecueing them. The oven baking firms them up so they don't collapse on the barbecue.
