Quick vegan beetroot burger cooking hack 

If you want to make these amazing plant based beet burger patties but don’t have the time for cooking beets yourself, don’t worry. I’ve got you. You can avoid the extra time (and the messiness of peeling beets) by using canned beets in this recipe. It’s an easy quick hack and saves you a good 20 minutes of cooking time. 

Gluten-free vegan beet burger patties recipe

To make these vegan beetroot burger patties gluten-free, you can simply use gluten-free rolled oats in the recipe. The reason I like to use rolled oats in my burger patties, is because they make the texture more firm and binds the ingredients together. 

Meal prep friendly burger patties

These beetroot burger patties are meal prep friendly because they can be frozen and reheated later. To make these patties in advance, simply freeze them on a flat surface lined with baking paper. Once the beet patties are frozen, you can place them in an airtight container and keep them in the freezer until you are ready to serve. 

To reheat the burger patties, you can grill them on a pan in olive oil, reheat them in the microwave or cook them from frozen in the oven. If you are cooking from frozen in the oven, just add 10-15 minutes extra cooking time or cook until you are sure the patties are cooked all the way through. 

How to serve the plant based beet burger patties

You can serve these patties in a burger with all your favourite burger toppings like;

  • Avocado slices
  • Tomato slices
  • Cucumber slices
  • Pickles
  • Roasted veggies
  • Ketchup
  • Vegan aioli 
  • Lettuce 
  • And the list could go on because these patties work well with everything

Another option is to serve these burger patties as is, with a side of salad such as my easy summer couscous salad or my fan favourite delicious zucchini lentil salad
