Vegetarian Beetroot Burgers with Cheese Sauce

Ingredients:

1 pound raw beetroot, peeled and grated

1 onion, chopped 

1 teaspoon cumin seeds

15 ounces chickpeas, drained well

1 egg

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

¼ cup feta, crumbled

1 tablespoon olive oil 

½ teaspoon dill, finely chopped

½ teaspoon parsley, finely chopped

½ teaspoon mint, finely chopped

½ cup fat-free yogurt

lettuce

burger buns

red onion, finely sliced

 

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 430 F. Sauté the chopped onion and cumin seeds in little olive oil for about five minutes or until soft. Pour into a blender together with the beetroot, egg, chickpeas and ½ of the sesame seeds. Season to taste and blend until well combined. Shape the mixture into 8 burger patties. Line the baking tray with baking paper and arrange the patties. Sprinkle with the rest of the sesame seeds. Bake for 30-40 minutes. When they are nice and firm take them out of the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the feta cheese with the finely chopped dill, parsley and mint, add the yogurt and make a nice sauce for the burgers.

Toast the burger buns, place one patty, smear some of the sauce and put some lettuce and red onions.

Bon Appétit!
