These smoky black bean beet burgers feature beans, quinoa, mushrooms and beets that, together, create an extremely satisfying dish. Protein is usually the “star” of any dish, and often times we find protein in the form of meat, eggs or dairy, but there’s a whole world of plant-based proteins that are equally as delicious and satisfying. These burgers have a hint of smokiness from the paprika. The smoked paprika is crucial to pulling the flavors together in these patties. We paired our burgers with a purple cabbage slaw for a nice crunch and topped them with pea shoots and a spicy ketchup. Burgers of any kind are always fun to make in a group because no matter the age or size of the crowd, everyone can customize them with cheese, condiments and other fixins!
