Beetroot & Sweet Potato Burgers In An Avo Bun

I love you all with every BEET of my heart, seriously I really do! Thank you so much for all your support, I couldn’t be happier with how this blog is developing and with the community of followers I have on Facebook and Instagram, that are all enjoying my recipes.

It’s  been a week of celebrations, I’ve just got my 19,000th follower on Instagram and I’ve been chosen as a finalist for 2 awards. One of which is for this blog and it’s a Northern Blog Award in the Healthy Eating Category.

So I thought I’d post this recipe as it’s soon become my FAVOURITE meal. I’ve developed a new beetroot burger, which combines 3 of my favourite ingredients: beetroot, sweet potato and avocado. It’s truly amazing.

Let the BEET drop! 😘

  5. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Serve inside an avocado and sprinkle your ground flaxseeds on top.
