  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 4 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-15 ounce can of kidney beans drained and rinsed
  • 8 ounces steamed beets
  • 1.5 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  • Pre-Heat oven to 350 F.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over a medium heat and add oil. Once the oil heats through, add in the onions along with a pinch of salt and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent.
  • Add in the garlic, spinach, cumin, and oregano along with a mother pinch of salt and pepper. Stir and cook for a couple more minutes or until the garlic is fragrant and the spinach is wilted.Shut off the heat and cool.
  • Transfer cooled ingredients into a food processor along with the kidney beans and pulse until everything is broken down. Be careful not to over-process the ingredients.
  • Grate beets using the large holes of a box growls to squeeze out any excess water and then transfer beets to a large bowl. Add in the ingredients from your food processor along with the quinoa, egg, coconut flour and some more salt and pepper.
  • Gently mix everything together and then using your hands, free-form 6 burger patties (each patty will be about 4 ounces) and place on a rimmed baking sheet that is coated with cooking spray.
  • Pop in to the oven and cook for 15 minutes on each side or until the patties have set up.
  • Remove from oven and grill for two minutes on each side or sauce in a non-stick skillet with a bit of avocado or coconut oil for a couple minutes on each side. (If desired; you can also cover and refrigerate the patties once they are done baking and then grill when ready to eat.)


*Store patties in the fridge for up to 5 days.
