You might be surprised to know that I found yet another delicious way to enjoy beets: burgers! If I haven't already turned you into a beet lover yet with my Beet Cashew Dip , Beet Detox Juice or Beet Strawberry Muffins, I'm convinced this is the recipe you fall head over heels in love with one of my favourite detox superfoods, beets!
I mean what's not to love about the BBB? These tasty burgers meet the criteria of being both healthy AND incredibly delicious.
Each burger has at least 10g of fiber each and is rich in vitamins like folate and vitamin C, as well as minerals like calcium, iron, potassium. They're also rich in many phytonutrients. In fact, the phytonutrients in beets are what give these burgers superfood star power (and their gorgeous colour, I mean, look at that photo above!). Beets contain specific phytonutrients that increase both phase 1 and 2 liver detox. When you support liver detoxification, you better eliminate chemicals from the body such as alcohol, caffeine and prescription drugs.
Since I love these burgers so much, I wanted to share them with the YouTube community so I posted them on my channel (and below). If you're not already subscribed to my channel, be sure to hit the "subscribe" button so you never miss a video! After the video, you'll find the recipe and tips for storing beets below because you don't want to be tossing out those nutrient-dense beet greens.
I'm happy to report the BBBs are burger-bun-worthy.
I know a lot of veggie burgers don't make the cut because they fall apart easily, but these stick together, as you can tell by my photo.
Don't be alarmed if your pee turns red temporarily, this is called "beeturia" and it's completely normal!
Makes 6-8 burgers.
Top with grated carrots and feta.
There you have it? How gorgeous are these burgers??! Before I go, Ive got some joyous storage tips below.
