Beet Patties

Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Beet Patties

I’m really glad I’m doing this veggie recipe challenge right now; it’s forcing me to be creative with my veggie dishes and really got me brainstorming for Valentine’s Day. Normally I would have done a sweet dish (or skipped the blog altogether and just dove headfirst into the chocolates). So today’s recipe came to be Valentine’s Day Heart-Shaped Beet patties, featuring that lovely deep pink color and a really delicious earthy flavor. This recipe is adapted from Color Me Vegan.

Beets are another really healthy food, being very high in folates. They also provide cardiovascular benefits, protecting against coronary artery disease and stroke. So not only do they have that pretty pink color for Valentine’s day, but they even helps protect your heart! Beets also provide a good source of B-complex vitamins, and the greens are an excellent source of Vitamin C (although this recipe doesn’t use the greens).

Since I’m going out for drinks later for a romantic Valentine’s day evening, I better get to the recipe and be on my way. Hope you enjoy!

Valentine’s Day

Heart-Shaped Beet Patties

  • 1 medium beet, shredded
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa or brown rice (red quinoa is beautiful here)
  • 1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup black sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup onion, minced
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 3 Tbs oat flour
  • 3 Tbs fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbs Braggs liquid aminos or soy sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl combine all ingredients, mixing well. If necessary to bind the mixture, add a bit more oat flour so that you can create patties that stay together.

On a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, arrange patties of uniform size, either shaping hearts with your hands or using a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Depending on size this recipe will make about 6 patties.

Bake for 25 minutes or until firm. Halfway through cooking time carefully flip the patties. Serve.
