Beet and Oats Vegan Burger

Beetroot and oats pairs quite well and gives such a lovely taste I am sure you won’t miss meat at all when you have the burger. I have gone with the Mexican flavors here with taco seasoning, coriander tomato salsa and buttery avocado  so u wont look around for mustard or ketchup. 
Plant based burgers need not be boring at all !

Beetroot – 1 large
