Beet Burgers

  • Prep: 40 minutes
  • Cook: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 40-45 Patties

My eldest daughter vehemently dislikes beets. Recently, one of her co-workers insisted that she try this veggie burger. To my daughter’s amazement she enjoyed it, and it’s made largely of beets. She got the recipe from the co-worker and we endeavored to recreate it with more precise measurements. These beet burgers freeze and reheat well so don’t be afraid to make a big batch and store the extra in the freezer.


  • 16 cups shredded beets (we used 4 large beets, about 4.5” diameter)
  • 5 shredded carrots
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cups sunflower seeds, roasted with salt
  • 1-1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/4 cups sesame seeds
  • 12 eggs slightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup tamari sauce
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 bunch of parsley chopped finely
  • 6 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used sharp)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3 cups bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (we used a convection oven).
  2. Mix all ingredients together. Make into patties (we used a generous 1/2 cup measure to make them even). Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake about 25 minutes per side. The burgers should be browned and crispy on the outside.
  3. These also freeze and reheat well. Reheat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until heated through.
