Big Bite Beet Burger is a mixture of savory ingredients giving it delicious flavor in every bite. It is topped with fresh veggies and portobello mushroom which makes it just perfect.
We had such lovely weather during the Easter Holidays and more sunny days are coming. The trees are not getting green yet, but I hope they will be soon. As I said before, we are slightly behind here in Canada. Most importantly, the time for outdoor parties is coming therefore burgers are on the menu. Well, not like they are not popular otherwise. Nevertheless, the Big Bite Beet Burger is colorful, healthy, and delicious. It is especially great for those who are watching their cholesterol.
Of course, they are many vegan products that make excellent cholesterol-free burgers. For example Beyond Meat or Gardein however, these products are highly processed. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, but I advise you to consume them only occasionally. On the other hand, you can freeze the Big Bite Beet Burger parties and have them ready anytime. Even though the recipe instructions are for oven baked, you can make them on a frying pan as well. Yet, I am not sure about grilling them barbeque. I would advise to pre-bake them first for 20 minutes. Let them cool down and then put them on the grill for a couple of minutes on each side. You can also grill the portobello mushroom. That I know for sure! It is absolutely my favorite!
I really hope you like this recipe, so please let me know what you think! You may also try the LENTIL – QUINOA BURGER as well. They are both healthy and super delicious. Thank you for visiting and I wish you a wonderful week.
