Winter Picnic: Beetroot Burger and Glutenfree Spinach Rolls

I was asking myself what it’s about temporary changing eating habits and preferences. These last weeks I was seeking for snacks, little bites and kind of healthy fast food snacks. Maybe I try simulate summer and picnic time. Even though it was to cold for a real picnic, I packed a little basket and went over to a friends house - indoors picnic with beetroot burgers and spinach rolls. Do you remember I wanted to try out gluten free cinnamon rolls? I found a glutenfree baking mix for bread that is elastic and works for savory rolls. I will experiment with my own mix using xanthan for finally finding a perfect recipe for a sweet variation.

For the beetroot burger

  • 200 g quinoa or grain of choice
  • 50 g rolled oats or quinoa
  • 250 g grated beetroot (raw)
  • 60 g chopped almonds
  • 60 g dried apricots, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped finely 
  • 100 g pecorino cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ras el hanout or cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil or butter for frying

Put the almonds, apricots, grated beetroot, onion, quinoa and cheese to a food processor and pulse a few times until chunky.

Season with spices and stir in the egg, mix well. Form patties.

Heat a the oil in pan on medium heat and cook the patties gently for 5 min. on each side.

Serve like a hamburger in a bread with cumin scented guacamole and leafy greens.

For the spinach rolls:

  • 250 g glutenfree bread baking mix (or experiment with your flour mix yourself adding xanthan and starch, I will post a recipe soon)
  • 20 g yeast
  • 50 ml olive oil + 1 tbsp
  • 200 -250 ml lukewarm water
  • 200 g fresh spinach
  • 1 onion, chopped
  •  1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tbsp oriental spices (curcuma, cinnamon, cardamom, sesam, coriander…)
  • 100 g pecorino cheese, grated
  • polenta for rolling out

Dissolve the yeast in lukewarm water, mix in the flour mix and the oil gradually. Knead for several minutes. Cover with a towel and leave in a warm place for 1-2 hours.

Cook onion and garlic in 1 tbsp of oil until tender, add let slightly cook the spinach for 3 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Knead the dough on a work surface and roll out. Spread spinach, spices and cheese onto the dough and roll up. Cut in 2 cm wide rolls and bake for about 15-20 Min.

You can also form small breads instead and eat them like a burger with the beetroot patties.
