I had heard of Beet Burgers as a vegetarian burger option, so I decided to try making some and was not disappointed! They are delicious and flavorful and a perfect use for beets that were less than a dollar at the farmers market! The vibrant color is beautiful as well. When I was making these, I jotted down the things my husband was saying because it was truly funny
1-You’re making beet burgers? I don’t know if I’ll them because I don’t like beets, do we have anything else in the house for dinner in case I don’t like them?
2- They’re really pink
3- Can I have the model one (one from the photo) it looks really pretty
4- Ok here goes…(after a bite) they’re really good!
5- I wouldn’t change a thing!
