Beetroot and Chilli Burgers

Prep time 10 mins, cook time 30 mins

Makes 6 large burgers

Vegan, Suitable for Freezing, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free

A quality veggie burger with all the trimmings can really hit the spot. This recipe creates a satisfying burger, with a good texture and plenty of flavour.


  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 beetroot grated
  • ½ courgette grated
  • 100g vegan mince (thaw first if frozen)
  • ½ pepper finely chopped
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 30g sunflower seeds
  • 150g kidney beans lightly mashed
  • 30g breadcrumbs
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp hot chilli sauce
  • A splash tabasco sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Fry the onion in 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  2. Place the grated beetroot and courgette onto paper towels and press out as much liquid as you can (this will prevent a soggy burger).
  3. In a large bowl add the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, and season well. The mixture should be fairly dry and easy to press together into burger shapes. If it’s still a little wet add more flour.
  4. Place the burgers onto a tray lined with parchment paper and refrigerate for one hour. You can also freeze the burgers for another time at this point if you like.
  5. Carefully place the burgers onto the barbecue grill and allow them to cook slowly on a gentle heat. Brush them with a little oil from time to time.
  6. Turn after 10 minutes and cook on the other side.
