Vegetarian burger with red beet root, millet and oatmeal.

I was looking up online for vegetarian or vegan burger recipes, and I found quite a few ideas. I decided to use the inspiration and make my own version.

 

DSCN0286I knew I would need some kind of grain, and I chose millet, which I boiled before hand and let it cool down. I knew I also needed a vegetable, and because I had red beetroot, I used that: one small red beet root, grated.

 

I sauteed some finely chopped onion in a pan, just until golden. I placed in a bowl the beet root, the onion, the boiled millet, and I added some oatflakes, ground flaxseeds, sesame seeds, salt, spices, and one beaten egg. Among spices:  pepper, sweet paprika, rosemary, parsely and dill. Oh yes, almost forgot, the finely chopped garlic.

I made burgers, placed them in a greased pan and baked them on medium heat for about 30 min. The truth is, I lost my patience, they weren’t cooking as fast as I hoped, so after 15 min I took some of them out and fried them on low heat, covered, both sides, and they were done in 10 min, and looked better than the ones made in the oven.

I served it on grain bread, with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and an avocado sauce.

For the avocado sauce I mashed an avocado with a bit of lemon, vinegar, olive oil and salt.

I tastes delicious, the perfect burger, honestly!
