Beetroot Veggie Burgers


  • Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and sauté the onion over low heat until soft. Add the Gregg's Ground Smoked Paprika and stir until fragrant. Remove from the heat.
  • Place the drained Wattie’s Chickpeas in a food processor and process until they are well mashed.* Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • Finely chop ½ the can of Wattie’s Sliced Beetroot and add to the chickpeas with the onion mixture, parsley and crumbled feta. Mix well then form into patties.** Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a little oil in the frying pan. Cook the patties over medium–low heat for 3–4 minutes on each side or until golden and hot.
  • Serve in toasted buns with toppings of your choice: rocket leaves, avocado, the remaining Wattie’s Sliced Beetroot and HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Original Mayonnaise.
  • Tip!

    *Make sure the chickpeas are well drained before processing. Process well to ensure chickpeas are mashed so they will bind with other ingredients to form firm patties.
    **If you find your mixture is too wet, add a little chickpea flour or plain flour before forming into patties.
