black beluga lentil and beet burger

Who doesn’t like a plant-based burger?!? This BBB (black Beluga lentils, Beets and Black garlic) burger is super delicious and easily made in the oven to make it low fat! What you need:

Ingredients and method

  • 1 1/2 cup of cooked beluga lentils
  • add to this 1 cup shredded beets
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoon pimentón (smoked paprika powder)
  • 3-4 cloves black (or normal) garlic, chopped up
  • 3-5 tablespoons of chickpea flour (garbanzo flour)

Combine everything and and pulse three/ four times in a foodprocessor. Form patties and refrigerate for 10 to 20 minutes. Lay the burgers on a paper lined oven tray. Cook for 30 minutes in a preheated oven 180 C or 350 F and after that carefully flip the burger and cook for another 15-20 minutes.

spicy goji sauce

This adapted recipe for a spicy goji sauce is from my dear Instagram friend Heike @tastyasheck who makes some of the most mind blowing food around!

Ingredients and method

  • 1/4 cup of soaked goji berries (simply soak them for 15 minutes in hot water)
  • juice and zest of half an organic orange
  • 1/4 cup soaked cashews
  • 1/4 cup soaked sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 1/2- 1 fresh red chili chopped, leave in seeds for more spice
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon of pomegranate molasses (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon of raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika/pimentón
  • pinch of salt

Blend all ingredients until very smooth and store in a glass container in the fridge.

I served my burgers on a homemade spelt sourdough bun with pickled red cabbage, spicy goji sauce, salad, avocado slices and radish sprouts.
