V for Vegan

April 20, 2021

By nature I am not vegan. I do have meat free days several times a week. There’s no particular reason; moral or health, it is more to do with the dishes themselves.

Looking for a way to get more ‘Speed foods’ into my diet I stumbled upon a recipe. Although quite tasty in its original – I felt it needed my own touch. Beetroot burgers are very tasty and filling. They are quite cheap to make and don’t take that long to prepare.


  • 250g fresh or ready boiled beetroot
  • 15g breadcrumbs
  • 50g cooked long grain rice
  • 50g cashews raw or salted
  • 1tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4tsp Chilli flakes
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Pinch of salt


  • Blitz all the ingredients in a food processor until you have a smooth paste
  • Form into burgers (use a wax paper and a burger press)
  • Chill for 30 minutes Bake at 200C for 25 minutes

Serve with a side salad of rocket, baby tomatoes and mange-tout, homemade coleslaw and air fried potatoes.
