  • 250 g raw beetroot
  • 300 g cooked lentils
  • ½ onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 Tbsp flax seed mixed with 6 Tbsp water this is the binder for the burger
  • ½ tsp chilli powder or to taste
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 25 g fresh parsley or coriander (about a handful)
  • 1 tsp salt (or to taste)


  • In a food processor, whizz up the peeled beetroot until smooth
  • Add all the rest of the ingredients and whizz up again until you have a burger-ish kind of mass
  • Form into patties. How many you make depends on how big the patties are. I usually get 4 burgers out of this
  • Pan fry or grill until crisped up on the outside and cooked through. (about 5 mins each side)
  • Serve on a bun with ALL the burger things you love.


If you don't have a food processor, grate the beetroot.. Use washing up gloves to avoid staining your hands! Mince the onion really finely, then use a potato masher or fork to mash up the lentils to create the burger.
