For the burger:
- 1 small white onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 150g cooked beetroot
- 150g cooked quinoa
- 150g wholemeal breadcrumbs (you can simply blend toast to make breadcrumbs)
- 2-3 tbsp. barbecue sauce
- Pinch salt and pepper
For the rest:
- 4 burger buns
- 1 small white onion (thinly sliced into rings)
- 1 tsp. Coconut Oil
- 8 tbsp. vegan mayonnaise
- 1 tsp. Sriracha or your favourite hot sauce
- ½ tsp. mustard
1. First, make the caramelised onions. Pan fry onion slices from 1 white onion on a low to medium heat with a splash of oil for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 tbsp. unrefined sugar halfway through to aid the caramelisation process.
2. While waiting, place onion and garlic into a blender and pulse until coarsely chopped. Add beetroot, cooked quinoa, breadcrumbs*, barbecue sauce, salt and pepper and process until fully combined.
*To make your own quick and easy breadcrumbs, simply toast bread until deep golden-brown, but not burnt, then blend the toast up in a food processor until you get breadcrumbs.
3. Place a pan on a medium to high heat with the coconut oil, then pan fry the burgers for 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway.
4. To make your vegan burger sauce, mix vegan mayonnaise, Sriricha and mustard in a bowl. Pop the patties into buns, top with caramelised onions, and smother with vegan burger sauce. Bliss.
