Vegan Beet Burger Recipe | The Ultimate Grillable Vegan Burgers with Fermented Pickles

Vegan Beet Burger Recipe | The Ultimate Grillable Vegan Burgers with Fermented Pickles

Since summer time, aka grilling season, is right around the corner we've been recipe developing to create a gut-heathy & grillable veggie burger. I know I'm not the only one whose veggie burgers usually fall apart on the grill... Sandwich like foods are notorious for being ugly in photographs, so in order for these blog pictures to be colorful and beautiful, we added shredded beets. These turned out to be the best veggie burgers we've ever made! Scotty even want's to make a bunch of them to stick in the freezer for quick lunches. Obviously we used our Fermented Dill Pickles as a topping, adding billions of gut healthy probiotic bacteria!  

If you really want to go the extra mile, you can even ferment your own dill pickles using our Pickle Fermentation Kit, then refer to this recipe for a fun way to eat them!

Combining the right ingredients in the right ratios to form a vegan burger patty that doesn't fall apart is hard... but not with this recipe! We cooked these burgers in a cast iron skillet AND outside on the BBQ grill... and they stayed together, in cute, vibrantly colored little patties.

For the toppings you can get creative! We added chopped kale, avocado, dijon mustard, sprouts and pickles. With our Cultured Guru Pickles included you get Over 200 billion CFUs of probiotics in this dish. 

We ate these for the first time on some little gluten free buns I made... It was DELICIOUS! I had some patties left over and grilled another one on the BBQ grill for Mother's Day. I topped it with onions, Cultured Guru Pickles, lettuce, tomato and dijon mustard and then ate it in an iceberg lettuce wrap... Y'all. IT WAS SO GOOD. I think I may have liked it a tad better with the traditional burger toppings.
