Contrary to popular belief, beetroots are not a winter harvest. One of the most nutritious foods around, the vegetable reaches its most tender at the end of August. Young beets are paired with the mild cream of delicately smashed black beans to pack this patty full-of-flavour. Oats and minced onion bind the mixture together to create a quick & easy dinner that sings on warm, summer nights.

Oozing natural juices, this Beetroot & Walnut Burger celebrates the diversity of a vegetable-rich diet.  Lend an ear to the sweet hum of heartiness and heft as you make no compromises on the comfort food you were craving. Freezable, these vegetarian delights, can be kept aside for days you haven’t had a chance to do the food shop.
