Beetroot and chickpeas burger


These days I longed for a burger, a healthy version of a burger.  I made this Spicy beetroot burger last year in March and it was great. A few days back I made another healthy burger which my husband ate most of them.

Ingredients for the beetroot burger:

  • 250 g roasted beetroot peeled
  • 250 g roasted potatoes peeled
  • 250g boiled chickpeas
  • 1 red onion
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • 1 egg (optional)
  • Salt
  • 2 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 with the chickpeas 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.  Put the burgers on the baking sheet and put them in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes.

I served the burgers with pickles and yellow pepper. They were great.Enjoy!
