Beetroot And Quinoa Burgers | Slimming World Recipe

Beetroot and Quinoa burgers… another perfect recipe for my vegetarian followers.. and also just totally yummy for everyone.. These burgers are a great way of getting lots of speed into your day since beetroot is a Speed food. I was a little sceptical about giving this a go but, it was really tasty and a great alternative to meat burgers but cutting the calories by 70%.

SERVINGS: 2 Burgers

You will need a food processor or Nutribullet to create this recipe. I do highly recommend the Nutri magic bullet… its fairly inexpensive and does exactly what it says.. I use it for 60% of my recipes.. its a gadget I simply could not live without.



  • Preheat the oven to 170c/Gas Mark 3.
  • Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and place your diced Beetroot onto the tray.
  • Place into the oven for 25 minutes. (This can be skipped if you decide to use pre cooked Beetroot)
  • Meanwhile cook the Quinoa according to the packet instructions.
  • Remove the Beetroot from the oven and place into a food processor/Nutribullet along with the Onion.
  • Because we still need some texture to the burgers.. only pulse the processor for 3 or 4 short blasts.
  • Place the Beetroot and Onion into a bowl with the cooked Quinoa, Beaten egg, crushed Garlic, Lemon juice, Chilli powder and Salt.
  • Combine completely and then using slightly wet hands form two burger type shapes.
  • Place back onto the lined baking tray and spritz the top with a little Frylight.
  • Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, remove, flip the burgers carefully and then bake for a further 15 minutes.
  • Serve in a bun with your choice of toppings (they work well with Cheese).

    I have a number of packets of cooked beetroot in the fridge. Do I still need to put in the oven?

    Many thanks

    Ive just made these and my mixture was very wet. I followed your quantities exactly. I used pre cooked beetroot rather than raw but that was the not difference. Can you tell me where I may have gone wrong please?

      Hi there
      Not 100% without being there whilst you prepared but it sounds like too much beetroot was used.. that would make it very wet and soggy.
