One of my favourite ways to have it is RAW in a JUICE. It is the most powerful & effective way to benefit from beetroot especially if you are suffering from EBV & Autoimmune disease & need a powerful boost.

Other ways to eat it is grated raw in salads, roasted in the over, lightly steamed OR even better, as a delicious beetroot burger like these ones below!!!!

Here’s the recipe!!!

Ingredients for my LUV BUG Beetroot Burgers

  • 3 cups cooked black-eyed beans (about 2 cups dried, cooked from scratch, the canned ones don’t work that well but you can use them)
  • 1 large onion finely diced
  • 1 large beetroot grated on the smallest possible size grater
  • 2 large cloves fresh garlic crushed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika spice
  • 1 tbsp dried Mediterranean herbs (a mix of oregano, marjoram, basil )
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • Olive or coconut oil

Method for making the beetroot burgers

  • Cook 2 cups of dried black eyes beans in 4 cups water. 30min in add 1 tsp salt & continue to cook until soft & tender. Drain & allow to cool.
  • Place 2 tbsp olive in a hot non stick pan & add the onion. Cook until translucent & tender. Add the Salt & pepper. Add in the grated beetroot & continue to stir-fry until soft for about 7min. Take off the heat & set aside.
  • In a food processor, blend together the beans, fresh crushed garlic, paprika spice, Mediterranean herbs& parsley. Don’t over process, it must still have texture to it.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the bean mix & onion & beetroot mix together & combined well. Taste the mixture to see if it needs more seasoning.
  • Clean the pan that you used for the onion & beetroot & reheat with 2 tbsp olive on a medium heat.
  • Form your beetroot burgers into patties (or little hearts like I did 😉 & put them in the hot pan. Allow to brown on each side & heat right through.

You can serve your beetroot burgers with a wide variety of options.

Traditionally with sweet potato fries.

With a portion of roasted veg.

Or on top of a green salad like I did. I used my green mayo as a dressing….if you want the recipe, click here

It’s as simple as that! Enjoy my friends xx
