Well Rocksey had been at Robs now for 3 days and was getting used to the vegan life and thought that it was time to repay their generosity and cook something for Rob and Sherri.
ROcksey had been following “cookthebeans.blog” a vegan cook for weeks now and decided to cook them a beetroot and red quinoa burger . After only 20 minutes prep Rocksey was ready to cook.
Now cooking isn’t anything new to rocksey but this time his hands were visibly shaking. Nervous was an understatement “here we go he thought ”
The oven was pre hearted and the burgers made, rocksey had made his own mixed salad with a lemon vinegarette dressing.
The burgers were fried for approx 2 minutes a side and all was ready.
40minutes later Zombie stood up and slapped Rocksey on his back “Welcome to the family welcome to the family” that was truly delicious. Even if you had tried I don’t think you could have wiped the smile off Rockseys face.
Rocksey was on the phone to kitten as soon as he returned to his room “they loved it “”dinner” and even I thought it was great.
I have posted the RECIPE BELOW

This Vegan Burger is probably one of my favourites, hope you like it to.
• 2 cups of peeled, roasted, chopped beets
• 1 cup cooked red quinoa (white is just as fine)
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 3 tbsp ground flaxseeds, soaked in 9 tbsp water
• 1 onion, finely diced
• 4 garlic cloves, crushed
• 1/2 cup of chickpeas or rice or oats
• 2 tbsp lemon juice
• 2 tbsp soy sauce
• salt and pepper to taste
• coriander to taste
• cumin to taste
• 1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms (shitake, baby bella or white button) optional
Preheat the oven to 200ºC.
Place the chopped beets, the garlic, the onion and the mushrooms rubbed with olive oil, on a parchment paper and let it roast for 20-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
In a food processor add all the ingredients, including seasonings. Pulse until combined, without making it to mushy.
With wet or oily hands form the mixture into burgers (they are sticky) and refrigerate them for about 2 hours at least. If you have the time, leave them overnight.
In a pan over medium heat, heat 1 tbsp of olive oil, and add the burgers, cooking them for about 2-4 minutes on each side, until crispy and cooked through.
