Beetroot and Feta Patties

Beetroot and Feta Patties

Green Kitchen At Home
David Frenkiel

These red, juicy patties almost look like meat, but they are so much better. Not only are they moist and flavourful but they have a beautiful texture, too. Burgers are, of course, ideal inside a bun, but we wanted to show you another way to serve them. Here, we serve them in lettuce leaf cups, paired with a slaw and some avocado and toasted seeds. The leaf can be used as a wrapper, so you can eat it with your hands, or as a salad in the bowl.


Quantity Ingredient

Beetroot patties

Quantity Ingredient
3-4 raw beetroots, peeled
10g fresh basil, leaves picked
1 small onion, peeled
2 cloves of garlic, peeled
150g rolled oats
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 free-range eggs
200g feta or organic firm tofu, drained and cubed
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil, (to fry)

cabbage Slaw

Quantity Ingredient
120ml full-fat plain unsweetened yoghurt
1 tablespoon organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon runny honey or pure maple syrup
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 white cabbage, trimmed
2 carrots, tops removed and peeled

To Serve

Quantity Ingredient
large lettuce leaves
sliced ripe avocado


  1. Coarsely grate the beetroots, roughly chop the basil, finely chop the onion and garlic and place in a large mixing bowl with the oats and oil. Crack in the eggs, crumble in the feta, season to taste and mix to combine. Cover and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or until the oats have absorbed the liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the slaw. Place the yoghurt, vinegar and honey in a mixing bowl, season to taste and mix. Grate or shred the cabbage and carrots and add them to the bowl. Stir to combine and set aside.
  3. Using your hands, shape the mixture into 6–8 large patties. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat. Fry the patties for a few minutes or until the base is golden. Carefully flip with a spatula and fry the other side. Alternatively, bake the patties in the oven at 200°C for 20 minutes, flip and bake for a further 5–10 minutes or until golden on both sides. Or put them on the grill. Serve in bowls with lettuce, avocado, slaw, sprouts and seeds.


  • Substitute feta for tofu and lemon for a dairy-free version.
