Ingredients

  • 100g sesame seeds , for coating

For the patties

For the avocado dip

Method

  • STEP 1

    Whizz the ingredients for the dip together in a food processor until smooth and glossy. Chill until ready to serve.

  • STEP 2

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the patties together with a large spatula until well blended. Form the mixture into 12 round patty shapes, roughly 6cm wide, by pressing together between your palms. They will feel wet, but this helps to keep them moist during baking.

  • STEP 3

    Put the sesame seeds in a bowl and coat the patties. Lay each patty on the baking tray and bake for 20 mins or until firm to the touch and lightly golden, then serve with the dip.

RECIPE TIPS
NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS

Full of vitamins and minerals, beetroot is packed with powerful antioxidants – and the leaves are good to eat too.
It also contains iron, and can help to reduce blood pressure, increase stamina and combat heart disease. Turmeric contains medicinal compounds called curcuminoids, which are strong antioxidants and good for soothing inflammation. It is more easily absorbed with fat and black pepper. Sesame seeds are an important source of nutrients such as omega-6 fatty acids, flavonoid antioxidants and vitamins.
