After I lost my gallbladder in 2006, I still craved for burgers, but I wanted something healthy and very tasty. I tried some recipes of vegetarian burgers, but never felt very good till I made this recipe. Mixing beetroot and potato was just amazing. This recipe for vegetarian burgers is for people who love spicy foods. You can skip the spicy if you are not a fan and it still gone taste amazing.
Ingredients for the beetroot burger:
- 250 g roasted beetroot peeled
- 250 g roasted potatoes peeled
- 2 table spoons flour
- 1 red onion
- ½ teaspoon chili
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- Fresh ground pepper
- 1 egg (optional)
- ½ teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon curry
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Grate the peeled beets on the largest holes of a box grater or use a food processor. Transfer the beet gratings to a strainer set over the sink. Press and squeeze the beet gratings to remove the liquid from the beats.
In a bowl smash the potatoes and then add the beet gratings and all the ingredients and mix them together. They should be a little harder. Taste the mixture and add salt and pepper.
Heat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius. On a baking tray put a baking sheet. Shape the mix into burgers in your palms. You should end up with 6 – 8 large burgers.
Put the burgers on the baking sheet and put them in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes.
Now we need to prepare the sandwich.
Ingredients for the sandwich:
- 2 slices of whole wheat bread
- Fried egg (optional)
- Sweet red chili jam
- Fresh spinach cut in small pieces (or parsley)
- Red chili flakes
On a piece of bread spread a teaspoon of sweet red chili jam. On top of it put the vegetarian beetroot burger and add some fresh spinach on top. If you don’t like the fried egg you put another pieces of bread on top of the burger and you have your amazing vegetarian beetroot sandwich. For the fried egg lovers, put the fried egg on top and sprinkle some chili flakes. Top it with the other slice of bread and you have your spicy vegetarian beetroot sandwich.
You are gone have a culinary orgasm. Enjoy!

Yummy. Strangely, in India eggs are not considered vegetarian.
Thank you. In our country vegetarian means no meat. You can have eggs, milk or cheese.
This sounds and LOOKS so good!
