Anyway - Tina, hide your eyes. It's all about the beets today.
This story actually begins last July at RWA in NYC. The restaurant in the Marriott had the most amazing veggie burgers. But they were RED. So red that I thought they had mistakenly brought me a very VERY rare hamburger. The waitress told me it was because of the beets!
I loved this burger so much that I convinced a few friends to wait on line with me another day so we could go back and have it again.
So began my quest to duplicate the beet burger.
I haven't found the exact recipe yet, but I did find this one that was pretty good. It has quinoa as a base.
Beautiful Beet Burgers
The quest for the perfect beet burger continues. Just today, I found this recipe for Basil Beet Burgers. I'll try it out and report back.
So fess up. Have you had a beet burger? Or a veggie burger heavy on beets?
If not, you might want to give this a try. Beets are an incredibly healthy food.
Health benefits of beets.
