Beetroot and lentil burgers
  • 2 medium beetroot, peeled, grated
  • 400 gram can lentils, rinsed, drained
  • 200 gram feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon sumac
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 bread rolls, split
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced

  • 1/2 cup cup mixed lettuce leaves
  • 1/4 cup harissa mayonnaise

Method

Beetroot and lentil burgers
  • 1
    Using paper towel, squeeze excess liquid from beetroot. Set aside in a bowl.
  • 2
    In a food processor, pulse lentils until pulpy. Transfer the bowl with beetroot. Stir in feta, onion, mint leaves, sumac, eggs and breadcrumbs. Mix well. Season to taste.
  • 3
    Shape beetroot mixture into 4 even-sized, flattened patties. Chill 15 minutes.
  • 4
    In a large frying pan heat oil on medium. Cook patties 4-5 minutes each side until golden. Drain on paper towel.
  • 5
    Spread the harissa mayonnaise on one side of each roll. Top with patties, tomato, onion and lettuce. Serve with kumara chips (see tip).

Notes

Make kumara chips by cutting peeled kumara into wedges. Arrange on a lightly oiled oven tray. Spray or drizzle with oil, season, and bake in a hot oven, 200C, 30-35 minutes until crisp and golden.
