Recipe Directions

I was planning on grating everything by hand but after grating my finger on the first beet I quickly threw out that idea! For the grater challenged I suggest using a food processor – chop beets and carrots into chunks and process into little bits. Put in a big bowl. Next puree zucchini, onion, garlic, jalepeno, spices and salt. Put in bowl with beets and carrots. Add flax and pumpkin seeds and mix well. Let sit for a half of an hour so the flavors marry and the flax soaks up some of the extra moisture.
Time to get nice and pink! Dig in with your hands and shape 6 patties about a 1/2 inch thick and put onto teflex sheets. You should be able to flip after about 5 hours dehydrating them at 105. Dehydrate until the desired dryness is achieved!
I ate mine with a green goddess type dressing and sprouts. Yummy in my tummy. Can’t wait to try these with some onion bread!

These are really great! I formed them into star shapes with a cookie cutter, then served them on a bed of mixed greens, drizzled with a 'hollandaise' type dressing. Delicious and beautiful!!

I LOVE beets and these burgers were sooo satisfying! The beets didn't stain my dehydrator either, I was thinking maybe because of the flax soaking up the juices???
I too appreciate that they are not loaded with nuts. I had mine with a ranch style dressing and some cucumber sticks. Thanks for the great recipe!

I'm with you...beets and I are slowly trying to become friends also. :-) You could always add more carrots and just use 1 beet.

Thanks for the lovely comments. I'm glad you like them! This was the first time I used beets because I was afraid of them staining everything too but surprisingly the beets didn't stain anything. It took a little scrubbing to clean the cutting board but other than that everything was fine.

does the beets stain your dehydrator trays? I'm always afraid to use beets, even though I love them, because I don't want them staining my processor, juicer, etc
