BEETROOT BURGERS FROM JUICE PULP
I am totally in love with veggie juices, but then there is the leftover pulp. Full of fiber and all the good stuff - juice pulp can be used in so many ways! Here is one of them: beetroot burgers from beetroot juice pulp. Very yummy and zero-waste!
Food waste is a big problem in today's culture. We produce too much and waste a lot of it. We do not have much power over companies and their waste, but we can reduce food waste in our households. Eating all the scraps and leftovers is great for the planet and our wallets.
Those vegan beetroot burgers are quite easy to make and will make any dinner more interesting!
You can enjoy them as a burger, but also you can tear them into smaller chunks and use in wraps or roll into balls and make beetroot balls to add to your dinner!

Notes and tips:
1. I am using for those burgers pulp from this juice: sweet-spicy beetroot juice
2. You can also freeze the burgers before you bake them. Just separate them with baking sheet to make sure they do not stick to each other, place in a container and enjoy anytime later.
3. You can have them on burgers, but also as a side to any other meal, you can crumble them a bit, and use in tortillas – possibilities are endless! Just go creative!
