BEETROOT CHICKPEA QUINOA BURGERS WITH LEMON GARLIC TAHINI SAUCE

The perfect summer crave-worthy veggie burger is here! Its insanely delicious, made from scratch and hand-pressed to perfection you’ll definitely want to fire up for grill for these beauties.

The patties are made from superfoods like beets, quinoa, chickpeas & chia seeds giving you all the essentials nutrients. They are rich in antioxidants and a great plant-based alternative that provide you with protein and fibre. To amp up the flavour we’ve paired it with a lemon garlic tahini sauce to compliment the earthiness of the burger and finished it off with crunchy pickles and peppery arugula.

For everyone who is gluten free or simply does not want to eat this as a burger, we included a salad option for you!

If you’re craving a vegetarian burger that replicates the taste and texture of a meat patty, unfortunately this burger is not for you.

When I eat a veggie burger, I don’t always look for that meat texture and flavour, sometimes I just crave the freshness from real vegetables, almost like a falafel burger which were so popular when we were in Australia, you won’t miss that meat flavour we promise!
