MEATLESS MONDAY : SCRUMPTIOUS BEET PATTIES

SCRUMPTIOUS BEET PATTIES

1 cup cooked, cooled brown rice
1 cup cooked green lentils
1 cup shredded beets
1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
Black pepper to taste
1 tsp thyme (or any dried herbs of your liking)
1/2 tsp ground fennel
3 tbsp chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons almond butter
1/2 cup fine breadcrumbs
Oil for cooking (I used coconut oil)

Peel beets and pulse them in the food processor together with brown rice and lentils until the mixture starts looking like ground beef, without the yuck factor.

Throw into a mixing bowl and add all the remaining ingredients. Mix well, use your hands for best results. Yes, it gets dirty so just enjoy the moment. Everything should be well incorporated so take your time. Chill in the fridge for 1/2 hour or so. I kept it for 2 days and had freshly cooked patties every day.

Preheat oil in the pan over medium-high. Shape into burgers of your desired size by hand. Cook for about 12 minutes, flipping occasionally. Serve with mashed potatoes/ pasta/ noodles/ salad/ risotto/ make a burger/ on a bed of greens/ quinoa
