A real classic, beetroot (beet) patties are some of the first vegetarian dishes I remember as a child in the 1970s. Vegetable patties are cheap and delicious at the same time. I don’t really like the term “vegetarian food”, because why should food be renamed just because there is no meat involved? All across the globe different cultures serve meals from just grains and vegetables and they do not call them anything special; for them it is simply food.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g beetroot
1 shallot
50g sesame seeds
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

For the horseradish cream

Quantity Ingredient
200g greek yogurt
200g full-fat creme fraiche
30g horseradish, fresh, peeled
1 teaspoon caster sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice

Method

  1. Peel and grate the beetroot (beet) and peel and finely grate the shallot. In a bowl, mix the grated beetroot and shallot with the sesame seeds and eggs, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and place spoonfuls of the patty mixture in the pan and cook, without squeezing them so the texture stays quite loose, until golden on both sides. If the mixture seems too loose and irritating to handle, you can add 2 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour to the mixture.Transfer the patties to an ovenproof dish and finish cooking in the oven for 10 minutes.
  4. While they are in the oven, make the horseradish cream. Mix the yogurt and crème fraîche together, then grate in the horseradish and mix. Add the sugar and lime juice, season with salt and pepper and serve with the patties.

Tip

  • These patties can be made with any kind of root vegetable.
