  • Food Processor
  • Cheese Grater


  • 3/4 cup Cooked Quinoa
  • 3/4 cup Cooked Brown Rice
  • 1 cup Shredded Raw Beets, packed about 1-2 beets
  • 1/2 Onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup Mushroom, sliced approximately 8 oz
  • 1 Large Carrot, sliced
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt plus more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper plus more to taste
  • 1-3 tbsp Almond Meal (or oat flour) plus more as needed


  • Preheat the oven to 375° F. Start by roasting the veggies (onions, garlic, mushrooms, celery, and carrots) in the oven for 20 minutes.
  • Use pre-cooked quinoa and rice. If you do not have quinoa and rice ready, prepare them in a small pot while the vegetables are roasting. (Cook the quinoa and rice as normal, according to the package.)
  • Shred the beets. First, rinse the beet until all dirt is removed, then peel the skin using a potato peeler. Using a cheese grater, shred the beet until you have one full cup. (consider using gloves when shredding the beets)
  • Once the quinoa, rice, and veggies are done, combine all ingredients except the beets and almond meal into a food processor or blender. Blend the ingredients lightly, just to break down larger chunks, and combine the ingredients.
  • Transfer the mixture into a large bowl, then slowly stir the beets into the mixture. Be sure to mix thoroughly so all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Add the almond meal 1 tablespoon at a time to absorb any excess moisture. The mixture should now be thick and you can easily form patties.To form patties, take about 1/2 cup of the mixture and use your hands to form small balls. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly.
  • Bake at 375° F for a total of 30-35 minutes. Be sure to flip halfway through, but handle the burgers with care so they do not break.
  • Enjoy on a bun or on a bed of mixed greens with your favorite toppings
