These Beet Burgers Might Make You Give Up Meat

With fresh beets, buttery mushrooms, and sumac yogurt dressing, the Ultimate Vegetarian Burger could well succeed where government health bodies and 80s pop singers have failed.

There are a lot of people out there who want you to go vegetarian. Your Instagram feed is awash with #meatfree fried seitan (pronounced "Satan"—coincidence?). Your vegan friend whips her phone out to reveal an arsenal of cute lamb photos should you ever let slip about a delicious lamb ragu you had last night. The World Health Organization says ham gives you cancer and Morrissey has been banging on about abattoirs since the late 80s.

Let's be honest, though. None of them have really made a dent in your enjoyment of a good bacon sandwich.

RECIPE: Ultimate Vegetarian Burger

That could be because they don't have fresh beets, buttery mushrooms, and sumac yogurt dressing on their side. But the Ultimate Vegetarian Burger does and it could well succeed where government health bodies and yodelling pop singers have failed.

Pop this hearty, bulgur wheat-bolstered beetroot patty between an avocado-smeared potato roll and you won't miss meat at all.

Or that side-eye the aforementioned vegan friend gives you when you order the Churrasco Thigh burger at Nando's.
