Thank you Beyond Meat for sponsoring this post. Try The Beyond Burger today! The Future of Protein. Made from Plants.

Summer and burgers go hand in hand – right? At least, that’s what my daughter tells me.
And, with that intro, you’d think that we were quite the burger connoisseurs…
But, alas… in recent years, neither of us have managed to sink our teeth into an actual beef burger… say whaaaaaaaaattt???

The Beyond Burger and other ingredients

This beet onion jam is so tasty! We love smothering it onto sandwiches and burgers – and sometimes, simply eating it straight up! And, this might sound a bit odd, but this spicy-sweet jam also pairs beautifully with crackers and cheese!

Made with only 8 ingredients, this condiment is easy and tasty and would be a fantastic addition to everything from your sandwich to a summer burger cookout.

When it comes to burgers, my tendency has usually been to whip up fish, chicken or vegetarian burgers. And, if I am in a time crunch, pre-made, frozen, plant-based burgers are my first choice.

Not too long ago, my daughter shared with me several reviews detailing how delicious Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger was. Now, I have been a fan of some of Beyond Meat’s products since I was introduced to them at a food conference here in Atlanta in 2014.

In fact, back in the early days of this blog, I even shared recipes for a pizza, stir fry and curry using Beyond Meat products. So, when I was given the opportunity to taste The one and only Beyond Burger, from Beyond Meat, I couldn’t resist. And, y’all, all those raving reviews are so spot on!

The Beyond Burger:

The Beyond Burger is the meatiest plant-based burger I’ve tasted – if it isn’t cooked to the point that it’s well done, it even retains a pink strip through the middle! In fact, it’s so meat-like, it’s sold in the meat case of over 7,000 grocery stores nationwide!

Without any soy, gluten, or GMOs and a hefty 20 grams of plant protein per patty, Beyond Burgers are juicy, with the chew and bounce of beef. And, if you are looking to eat a more plant-based diet, then Beyond Burgers will have you “Enjoying Life’s Tastiest Moments (Without Giving Up the Taste You Love)

The meaty, plant based, Beyond Burger

I whipped up some beet onion jam to enjoy with our pan-grilled Beyond Burgers.

What are the 8 ingredients needed to make this beet onion jam?

You will need the following ingredients:

  1. red onions,
  2. beetroot,
  3. fresh ginger,
  4. garlic,
  5. red wine vinegar,
  6. smoked paprika
  7. chili powder, and
  8. maple syrup or honey.

How to make this easy sweet-spicy condiment?

My love for beetroot runs deep, so, instead of sliced onions as a topping for these Beyond Burgers, I decided to go with this delicious beet onion jam.

  1. Wash and dry beetroot and using a vegetable peeler, peel off the outer skin. Then, (you can do this next step now or leave it till the onions have sauteed), grab a grater and grate the beetroot up to add to the caramelized onion mix in the next step.
  2. Place the oil in a pan over medium heat and add the onions to it. Saute onions for about 25 – 30 minutes until they are golden-ish, stirring often during the sauteing so the onions don’t burn.
  3. Add garlic, ginger, and beetroot and saute a minute or so. 
  4. Then add in the red wine vinegar, smoked paprika, chili powder, and honey and mix well. Finally, season with salt and pepper to taste. When the beet onion jam is done cooking, you can add it to a blender or food processor or use an immersion blender and pulse it till it’s a more spreadable jam like consistency or enjoy it as is.
