I'm on a mission to find a great veggie burger. I have one recipe here that uses black beans, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, but this version adds a little kick with chipotle chili powder, which adds a great smoky flavor, and healthy beets.
This one is rich in protein and heart-healthy punch with black beans, rice, beets, and raisins. Yes, raisins! These little babies add a little sweetness along with a punch of vitamins like B vitamins, iron, potassium and good carbs for energy!
To roast the beets, remove the leaves, wash and put them on a large piece of aluminum foil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and close up the foil. Put into a pie tin or small baking pan and roast in a 400-degree oven for about 20-30 minutes. Then peel and proceed with the recipe.
