  • For the Burgers
  • 2 cups beet root peeled and cut into cubes
  • 1 cup red quinoa white is just as fine, cooked
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 2 tbsp wholemeal bread crumbs
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 tsp coconut oil melted
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • For the Dressing
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 tbsp tahini sesame paste
  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
  • For the Fries
  • 2 sweet potatoes peeled and cut in 1/4-inch long slices, then 1/4-wide inch strips
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp cornmeal
  • For assembling
  • 4 Wholemeal buns
  • 1 bunch of parsley finely chopped


  • Preheat the oven at 175°C/347°F.
  • Place the beet root cubes on a lined baking tin, rub with olive oil and roast for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  • Place the roasted beets in a food processor and pulse two or three times - you need some texture for the burgers, so make sure you don't mash them completely.
  • Transfer the beets into a large bowl, add all the other ingredients and stir to combine. If the texture is too mushy add more bread crumbs until you obtain the desired consistency.
  • With slightly wet hands, shape the burgers and place them on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes on one side, then flip over and bake for 15 more minutes.
  • Place the sweet potato strips on a lined baking sheet, rub with olive oil, than sprinkle with cornmeal and toss to combine.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. They will be ready in the same time with the burgers.
  • While the burgers are baking, prepare the dressing.Place all the ingredients in the food processor and process to obtain a creamy sauce.
  • Assemble the burgers immediately after removing from the oven.
  • Cut the bun in halves, spread bun bases with dressing, add the beet burger and sweet potato fries, top generously with avocado dressing, parsley and put on the bun top.
  • Serve immediately.
