Farmer Nathan’s Beet Burgers

Farmer Nathan, from Hillside Farm has concocted an amazing recipe for those yummy, crimson-red beets that are at the peak of their season right now. Enjoy!

Beet Burgers

3 medium size beets

1/2 onion, diced

1 large carrot, grated

1/3 cup cooked oatmeal

1 cup chickpeas

1 small bunch greens (spinach, kale, arugula, collards, chard, etc.)

2 T. flour

1/2 T. minced garlic

1 egg

spice (salt, pepper, sage, etc.)

Dice the beets and saute over medium/low heat until tender – 10 to 15 minutes.

Thinly slice the onion and saute until it begins to brown. While the onion is cooking, thinly chop your greens and throw them in with the onion to cook just until they begin to wilt.

Mash the chickpeas.

Combine all the cooked ingredients in a large bowl with the mashed chickpeas and all the remaining ingredients.

Form into patties and cook in a skillet over medium/low heat until brown on both sides.

Makes 5 to 6 patties
