Is there anything more stunning than beetroot? It’s just one of those amazing things that you can’t quite believe it just grows like that with that incredible colour.

I’ve decide beetroot is something I don’t use nearly enough so this autumn I’m going all out on the beetroot.

So I made a beetroot salad a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty life changing. Before that I hadn’t really cooked with much beetroot and I quickly discovered that it’s totally worth the dramatically stained hands.

And yes I know I could wear gloves but if you know me at all then you know I would never bother with that kind of nonsense.

Anyways, after making that salad I became a little obsessed with making more beetroot recipes because it seems like the most excellent vegetable to use now that all the yummy summer ones are going out of season fast.

INGREDIENTS YOU NEED TO MAKE BEETROOT BURGERS WITH WHIPPED FETA:

  • Beetroot – I used three large, peel and chop, wear gloves if you don’t want pink hands for a few days
  • Bulgur Wheat – Cooked according to packet instructions
  • Egg
  • Garlic
  • Breadcrumbs – I used panko because they’re my fave and also all I ever have on hand
  • Oil – Olive oil is my preference
  • Lemon Juice
  • Chilli Flakes
  • Burger Buns – Brioche preferably because is there anything else?
  • Rocket Leaves – Or another green leaf of your choice
  • Feta
  • Yoghurt
  • Fresh Herbs – I use dill and parsley but grab whatever you like

THINGS TO LOVE ABOUT THESE BEETROOT BURGERS WITH WHIPPED FETA

So. many. things.

First off, the beetroot gets all roasty in the oven which helps bring out that amazing sweetness before you’ve even started making the burgers.

Then there’s obviously the superfood-ness of the beetroot but I added in some bulgur wheat in there too to get that burger texture and make them even more filling which is always good in my book.

After that you’ve got a topping of the most incredible herby whipped feta which is honestly so good. So good that I ate half of it with crackers while I was waiting for the burgers to cook.

These burgers are also great for leftovers. I loved them for lunch the next day and they lasted really well even fully assembled and wrapped in foil in the fridge.

I even found these burgers so filling that I was happy to go without a side but you could definitely make some fries to go with the burgers.

Even better, serve any extra whipped feta on the side for dipping. You won’t regret it.

HOW TO MAKE BEETROOT BURGERS WITH WHIPPED FETA (STEP BY STEP):

  2. Place the beetroot in a food processor and pulse a few times then place in a large mixing bowl with the bulgur wheat, egg, garlic, breadcrumbs, oil, lemon juice and chilli flakes.

    I keep trying beets, but I haven’t liked them too many ways. This just might be the recipe that gets me to eat them on a regular basis! That whipped feta is perfect on top too!
