Beet burgers?! Two or three years ago, I don’t think I would’ve gone near something called a beet burger, but oh, how I’m glad that’s changed because the Sprouted Kitchen’s Smoky Beet Burgers* are so, so good. And topped with a feta spread?! I just found myself my newest favorite veggie burger. (There are only so many black bean/quinoa burger patties I can try).
I think this recipe is best tackled as a team to cut down on the time, but the burger is well worth the time spent making the lentils, brown rice, and pulsing the ingredients in a food processer. I also may or may not have gotten a little bright pink beet juice on my kitchen rug, but I was a little more careful handling the recipe the second time round.
For leftovers at work the next day, I stick a whole wheat bun and the patty in the toaster oven, and it’s an easy lunch packed with plant goodness.

Would you make these beet burgers? Anyone else tired of traditional black bean veggie burgers?
