400g raw ForestFoods beetroot, peeled and coarsely grated
Small bunch ForestFoods spring onions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Small bunch ForestFoods fresh mint, chopped
Finely grated zest and juice 1 lemon
3 tbsp plain flour
1 medium ForestFoods egg
200g feta, crumbled
5 tbsp olive oil
200g ForestFoods mixed salad leaves
Start by squeezing as much liquid out of the grated beetroot as possible (best done by wrapping in a cloth and squeezing the liquid out as much as possible)
In a large bowl, mix the beetroot, spring onions, garlic, mint, lemon zest, half the lemon juice, 2 tbsp of the flour and the egg. Add salt and pepper for seasoning and taste. Now add in the feta and mix until all is well combined.
Form the mixture into 4 burger-shaped patties and coat with the remaining flour. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with 3 tbsp olive oil and fry the patties for 4-5 minutes on each side until crisp on the outside and cooked through.
Mix in the remaining oil and lemon juice with a pinch of salt and pepper and toss with the mixed salad leaves. You can serve these burgers on their own with burger buns and or with the mixed lettuce salad.
