Vegan beetroot burger

IMG-0926

Eating more plant base meals is my aim for months now. I discovered a whole new world of very fragrant and colorful foods, that are usually much cheaper and easier to cook. The recipe today got me really excited to try as I had never had beets in a burger or even roasted. I regret not trying it before. Roasted beets are sweet and earthy, but without the striking taste that some people don`t like. I also made vegan mayo to go on the bun, some mashed avocado with added lime juice and baked sweet potatoes. To convince my husband to eat it I put fresh chopped parsley which he adore. Win win!
