Vegan Beet Burgers

Vegan beet burgers

Vegan beet burgers are all the rage in the plant-based world. The red color is absolutely gorgeous! Serve as you would any other kind of burger — on buns or in pita bread, with your favorite condiments. They’re so flavorful that I like to serve them on their own. If anything, I’d add a dollop of a quick vegan tartar sauce and serve them with salad.

Russian Beet and Potato Salad

Salad with beetroot,potatoes,carrots and cucumber ( Beet Salad- Vinegret)

Here’s a simple, classic potato salad made vivid with beets. If you have access to golden beets, by all means, use them. They’re even sweeter than red beets, and keep their vivid color to themselves more than red beets do. Is this salad really Russian? I have no idea; it is really good, though, especially if you like beets! more→

And a small flourish of your favorite seeds is a nice finishing touch. more→

Raw or Nearly-Raw Cold Beet Borscht

The ingredients of classic cold beet borscht are usually cooked together, then chilled, but in this version, there’s no need to cook at all, unless you’d like to lightly pre-cook the beets. After this has a chance to chill, don’t be shy about amping up the lemon/agave contrast to your taste. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
