THE BURGER / replaced by a beetroot steak
recipe from the Green Kitchen Stories ‘s blog

Ingredients (makes 6-8 burgers):

  • 750 ml grated raw beetroots (approx. 4-5 beets)
  • 150 g rolled oats or flakes of your choice
  • 1 small onion
  • 200 g sheep’s feta cheese or firm tofu
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp cold-pressed olive oil
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • salt and pepper

For the rest of the burger:

  • lettuce or cabbage
  • mango
  • avocado
  • tomatoes
  • onions
  • fresh bread ( for the burger buns)


  • Peel and grate beets, onion and garlic on a box grater or use a food processor with the grating blades attached. Place the grated vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Add olive oil, eggs and rolled oats and mix everything well. Add sheep’s cheese or tofu, basil, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  • Set aside for about 30 minutes, so the oats can soak up the liquid and the mixture sets (this step is important for the patties to hold together).
  • Try shaping a patty with your hands. If the mixture is to loose, add some more oats. Form 6-8 patties with your hands.
  • Grill the beetroot burgers a couple of minutes on each side – or fry them in a frying pan by heating a knob of coconut oil or ghee and fry until golden on both sides.
  • Serve with grilled sourdough bread and toppings of your choice.


PESTO SPAGHETTI / the pastas are replaced with courgettes
recipe from Ella’s blog Deliciously Ella


Ingredients (serves 2):

For the pasta:

  • 2 courgettes

For the sauce:

  • 1 ½ avocados
  • a large handful of fresh mint leaves
  • 12 brazil nuts
  • ½ a cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ a lime
  • salt to taste
  • a dozen chestnut mushrooms

Preparation :

  • Start by making the courgette spaghetti according to the instructions on the individual machine. Place the spaghetti to one side and begin the sauce.
  • Cut the mushrooms into thin slices, drizzle with olive oil and gently heat in a large frying pan for about 5 minutes. During which time place the brazil nuts in a food processor and blend for the same amount of time, until they become creamy.
  • Then add in the avocado, olive oil, lime, mint leaves and salt – blend again. Gradually add the water as the sauce blends to create exactly the right consistency for you.
  • Add the sauce and spaghetti to the mushrooms in the frying pan and gently heat for a couple of minutes to warm the dish up and soften the pasta a little, alternatively enjoy it raw. Both taste equally delicious.
