Beet & Quinoa Burger, Guac, and Sweet Potato Fries



Beet and Quinoa Burger guac sweet potato fries vegetarian burger

I work at the pharmacy and this elderly customer asked if I had any magazines that she could read while I got her prescription ready. She was talking about a health magazine. I saw the cover photo on the magazine was this beet burger that looked amazing! From that day, I really wanted to try to make a beet burger. I made these beet and quinoa burger patties and they turned out well! Here's a recipe if you want to try making the burger.

Ingredients
1 onion minced
3 garlic gloves minced
2 cups boiled quinoa
2 beet boiled/cooked
2 avocados
1 lemon
some red vine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste


Once the beet is boiled, mash the beets in a bowl. Remove any excess fluid.

Add onions, cilantro, garlic gloves, juice from a lemon, 1-2 teaspoons of red vinegar.

Add cooked quinoa. Mix well.

Preheat oven at 400 degrees.



       

Make the beet and quinoa patties. Bake for 20 minutes.

Add cut sweet potato/yam fries in the oven until it browns. It took about 15-20 minutes.




While these are baking in the oven, make the guacamole.

Once the patties and sweet potato fries are done, its time to assemble the burger!






I used whole wheat ciabatta.

Added a layer of freshly cut cilantro.

The beet burger. Topped by guacamole.

And finally the freshly baked sweet potato fries on top! Enjoy!
