the unBEETable burger

the unBEETable burger

A few weeks ago I tried out the “impossible burger”, and I have to say I neither loved nor hated it – it was just, well, fine. I do know many people who rave about it, but at $16 a burger, I’m going to need to LOVE it… a lot. I will say, it had been AGES since I’d eaten a burger (even a “veggie” burger, because they just weird me out) and it definitely made me crave another. So that brings us to the unBEETable burger…

I made these burgers using ingredients I already had in my kitchen, chances are you already have them too! For the beets, I used a bag of frozen beets from Trader Joe’s (thawed). It equalled about 3 cups, so you can use fresh or frozen, as long they’re cubed. Just throw everything in the vitamix, blend, and bake! Store in the fridge, and reheat on the stove.
