Wait a millet! Are those purple burgers?

 

 

Check out these Harissa spiced beetroot & millet burgers & prepare to turn your hands purple - inspired by the amazing guys at the Happy Pear.

 

Ingredients:

 

3 bulbs of fresh beetroot

2 medium sweet potatoes

2 cloves of garlic

1 white onion

1 red pepper

2 teaspoons of Harissa

2 cups of millet

1 medium chilli

Vegan bouillon

3-4 tablespoons of flaxseed

 

Spices used - cumin, chilli flakes.

 

How to:

 

1) wash & peel all the vegetables, including the beetroot (which may turn your fingers purple)

 

2) cut all the vegetables into small cubes, add the spices and a drizzle of olive oil & roast in the oven for 40-45 minutes (cooking time will depend on the size of the cubes)

 

3) cover the millet & vegan stock in a small pot with water & cook on med heat until all the water is absorbed. Then remove from the heat.

 

4) when the vegetables are soft through, remove and pop into a food processor or nutribullet with the Harissa & blitz until bind together.

 

5) add all the ingredients together in large mixing bowl with the flaxseed & mix together in your hands to form burger shaped patties. (If mixture is too moist try adding a little more flaxseed & if it is too dry add a flax egg - google)

 

6) return the burgers to the oven for another 15 - 20 minutes on medium heat turning occasionally.

 

7) remove & enjoy

 

This recipe worked perfectly for me first time & really should for you to, however the exact amounts used and cooking times are a guesstimation at best so give it a shot & don't be afraid to fail. Your purple hands should keep you amused should it all go drastically wrong anyway 😈
