Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp cumin seeds
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 200g quinoa, cooked
  • 2 large cooked beetroot (150g), finely grated and liquid reserved
  • 50g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp milled flaxseed
  • ½ small bunch of coriander, plus a few leaves to serve

For the salad

  • 25ml beetroot preserving liquid
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 100g low-fat soy yogurt
  • 50ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 200g rocket

Method

  • STEP 1

Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Put 1 tbsp of the rapeseed oil in a small frying pan and tip in the onion, cumin and garlic, then fry over a medium heat for 8 mins until softened and golden. Tip into a bowl. Add the cooked quinoa, beetroot, flour, flaxseed and coriander, and mix until combined. Season lightly. Leave to sit for 5 mins to bind.

  • STEP 2

Divide the mixture into four – it will be quite loose – then, using wet hands, shape them into patties. Put the burgers on a lined baking tray and put in the oven for 15 mins. Turn them over and cook for another 10 mins.

  • STEP 3

Meanwhile, make the salad dressing. Whisk together the beetroot liquid, lemon juice, yogurt and oil, and season.

  • STEP 4

To serve, pile the rocket onto plates and place a burger on top. Drizzle over the dressing and scatter over the extra coriander.
