It's National Grilling Month!



Did you know that July is national grilling month?! This means that summer is truly here, and it is the perfect time for outdoor cooking! 

When I think of summertime and grilling, I usually start craving a burger! I love them so much, and they are a classic summertime go-to, but sometimes I want to change things up and add some more veggies! Here are three tasty veggie burger recipes that will do the trick! 

If you do not have access to a grill, don’t worry! You can cook up all of these burgers in The Dash Mini Maker Grill!



Sweet Potato Burgers

1 medium sweet potato
⅔ cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 egg
¼ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon salt
4 burger buns

Use the Dash Rapid Peeler to peel the sweet potato. You’ll need about 2 cups of shredded sweet potato. Place in a bowl with the chickpeas, egg, flour and spices and use your hands to mix it all together.

Cook burgers in the Dash Mini Maker Grill until crisp. Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings!



Spicy Beet Burger

4 medium beets, peeled & cubed
1 cup quinoa, cooked
1 egg
½ yellow onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
3 tablespoons oat flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon sea salt

Roast the beets at 350F for 25 minutes. Blend the beets in the Dash Chef Series Digital Blender on "pulse" until broken up, but not mashed. Place the beets into a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Form into burger patties and cook on a lightly greased Dash Mini Maker Griddle until done, about 5 minutes. Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings!


Black Bean Burgers

1 can drained and rinsed black beans
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
¼ cup yellow onion chopped
¼ cup organic bread crumbs
1 egg

Mash 1 cup of the beans with a fork and then add the rest of the beans and spices. Mix well. Add the onion, bread crumbs, and egg and mix again.

Scoop about 1/3 cup of mixture and press into a patty. Grill in the Dash Mini Maker Grill. Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings!
