How do you make these veggie burgers?

You grab all the ingredients. Drain the chickpeas. Peel the beets and chop them into chunks.

Then, add all the ingredients to a blender or food processor and pulse for a bit.

Then, just form the mixture into balls.

Slightly flatten the balls and either throw them on the grill or stove-top immediately, or let them sit in the fridge till needed.

Easy Beet Burger Preparation

These would be a wonderful vegetarian option for any upcoming Memorial Day or summer get-togethers you may have.

My daughter used to love a challenge – especially when I’m the one being challenged.

One Sunday, the church we attend began with a series of trivia questions such as:
When do you peak in your ability to learn new languages? …Answer is 7 yrs
When do you peak in your chances of making a Nobel Prize winning discovery? …Answer is 40 yrs
When do you peak in your ability to remember faces? …Answer is 32 yrs
When do you peak in your ability to remember names? …Answer is 22 yrs
When do you peak in your ability to understand other people’s emotions? …Answer is 51 yrs
When do you peak in your vocabulary? …Answer is 71 yrs
…and so on…

Of course, as soon as the questions were out there, my daughter and I found ourselves pushing our gray matter into overdrive trying to guess an answer as close to the correct one as possible.

After nailing the first three questions, my head began to swell just a bit. It’s not often I win challenges with my daughter. But, by the 6th question, my daughter made sure to deflate my swelled head! Of course, she ended up almost correctly guessing most of the rest.

Reveling from her win, when we got home, she issued another challenge.

Knowing that I tend to be a slow eater, she challenged me to see who could polish off three of these Teriyaki Chickpea Beet Burgers the fastest.

Gluten Free Teriyaki Beet Bean Burgers

Which isn’t quite a fair challenge, I know – but seeing she was heading off to college soon, I figured I’d entertain her.

I had already prepared these burgers the night before and was planning on throwing them on the grill. But, an afternoon thunderstorm made sure I cooked these on my stove top instead.

And, as soon as I had placed these on a bed of shredded lettuce with some sliced avocados on the side and whipped up a dipping sauce with Soy Sauce, chili flakes, and lime juice, the challenge was on!

    I still have one beet in the fridge, bought one too many the other day, they were so pretty. 🙂 This is a great idea for using it.

  4. LOVE beets! I just can’t get over how pretty these burgers are! That color is SO vibrant!!!!

  5. mira says:

    These look so delicious! Love that you used beets in them. Pinning to try them!

  6. Ben|Havocinthekitchen says:

    Shashi, these questions and their answers totally make sense. At least, they explain why do I remember the faces separately from the names. I have no problem in recognizing the faces (Although my peak is already over), but I always struggle with assigning the names to them hah. These burgers are seriously amazing. I love both beets and chickpeas so this combo is screaming my name. And there’s another trivia question: How many of these burgers should you send to Ben? (Answer: 12)

  7. What interesting questions! I enjoyed reading them and trying to figure out the answers 🙂 Though, I must admit, I was a bit disappointed when I read the learning a new language one peaks at age 7 – hubby and I ordered a Rosetta Stone French language kit the other day so it may pose a challenge or at least get my brain working 😉 I have a little base of French so wish me luck! Ok, these burgers! Shashi, they look deeeee-licious! I love veggie burgers, especially they look as good as this. And pile on the toppings, I say (all about the garnish). Hope you have a wonderful week, my friend! XO

    Shashi, this is one challenge I would partake in myself and I’m sure against my kids, I would win! Your beet burgers look fantastic and I love it with the avocado and salad…it’s a perfect summer meal and so healthy too. This is right up my alley! xoxo, Catherine

  9. I’ve been looking for a good vegetarian “burger” recipe Shashi! These look fabulous, and I adore beets… Pinning!

  10. puja says:

    This looks gorgeous, so delicious and very creative shashi. I love beetroot, and I think I will try this recipe soon.

  11. Beets in burger form? You really are the beet queen, Shashi! I remember back when you made those donuts with beets, and I thought that one couldn’t be topped…but you’ve done it with these beet burgers! Talk about a unique and fun recipe for any vegetarians who might be around for Memorial Day parties! 🙂 But now I have to know…who won the Great Beet Burger Challenge of 2017?? Great use of Kikkoman teriyaki in this one, too…I love that stuff!!

  12. Shashi, you are famous for your beet recipes. Loving this meatless meal and we could easily polish off 3 in one sitting! Letting them sit in the refrigerator overnightI am sure helps them to bind together. Enjoy these last few precious weeks with your daughter. Don’t worry she will always come home to visit mom and her awesome meals. 🙂

  13. What a great alterniative to a regular burger.

  14. Suzanne says:

    Those burgers are amazing Shashi, I have tried veggie burgers and each time failed pretty miserably, they fall apart or taste really bad. Love this recipe.

  15. Deanna says:

    Oh yum!!! This looks good!!!

  16. Sarah says:

    I’m loving the flavors in these – sound so delicious!

  17. These look really good – the blend looks nice and firm and I’m loving the colour from the beets.

  18. I think you know I’m not a beet person, but you’re always making me want to be. I bet I could do these–I like anything with teriyaki sauce!

  19. So very delicious! Teriyaki is definitely my favourite sauce!

    These sound fantastic, great for a summer weeknight meal!
