Beetroot Burger - Recipes

I have never loved sandwiches .. indeed, yes, sometimes as a child I made myself take to the Burghy (which was a novelty at the time) but then, growing up, I became aware and goodbye. your version, however, attracts me a lot and I absolutely want to replicate it ^ _ ^ Brava Katy

I'm drooling on the keyboard. :OR

I also love sandwiches and this burger is a real treat !!

Wow! Beautiful photo and beautiful sandwich! I also like burgers a lot and I often make them by varying the ingredients each time and trying various combinations. But, tell me something, where do you find the barbecue sauce?

In all the supermarkets a little stocked, near the ketchup. I find it both from the HD brand and from the Heinz brand.

At the word & quotlupini & quot, a little nostalgic music arrives in the air and I see a little girl with a coat and round shoes stopping at the stall that sold them, along with green olives, in Villa Borghese, at the point near the lake, where her father took her often giving fries to the ducks. and with her packet of lupins she was so happy. :-)
After the amarcord interlude, I comment on the idea: beautiful! I am not vegan but in the end I discovered that I love a lot of recipes that you propose or read in other interesting blogs. who loves food like me, loves ALL food without prejudice and then I love creativity and knowing how to & quotinvent & quot absolutely delicious alternatives like this. and I also like the photo, with the open checkered shirt a bit vintage! :-)

I totally agree Fra, vegan food is definitely not just for vegans. If a thing is good, it is good, right? :-)
