Ingredients

Optional Toppings

  • avocado, smashed
  • fresh spinach, layered on top
  • mayo

Instructions

  1. Prepare the ingredients by roasting the beets (400F for 1 hr...I make extra for other recipes) and boiling the brown rice (follow package instructions).

  2. Meanwhile, mash black beans in a large bowl. When the beets and rice are cooked, peel and shred the beets and add both rice and beets to the bowl with the black beans.

  3. Add all other remaining to the bowl. Mix until incorporated. The mixture will be slightly sticky and have a lot of texture - it will not be smooth.

  4. Divide the mixture into the size and amount of burgers desired. Flatten them to an even consistency.
  5. Lay the burgers on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350 F.

  6. At this point you can freeze them for future meals or fry them on the stove in a griddle pan with a little olive oil until the sides are crisp and griddle lines form on each side. A few minutes per side.
  7. Top with avocado, salt, pepper, salsa...anything you would like - it's your burger!
