beet-cutlet-pattiesValentine’s is not over till you have had some heart-shaped delicacies and these ‘Healthy Beetroot Cutlet (Valentines Heart Patties-V-GF)’ will surely make your Valentine’s extra special. The sweetness from beets mixed with veggies and spices gives these cutlets/patties such a delicious and rich savory flavor. Every year, I come up with different Valentine’s breakfast options and as both of us (me and hubby) have very different taste. He loves more savory-spicy food and I’m all about sweets and not so spicy food. But, since it’s Valentines, I thought why not create something that both of us will like and saves time too and oh healthy too. Hence, these cutlets were decided upon and I’m planning to serve them along with Coconut-Raspberry Valentines Milkshake that I shared last year. Beetroot-patties-veganNow, beets is not an everyday vegetable for a lot of you and even me….I can have it 2-3 times a month. Also, I always found it to be too red in color and definitely sweeter than I like BUT if you read all about the healthy stuff these tiny little beets provides, you would want to include them in your regular meal plan. Beets are rich in phytonutrients that’s essential for healthy nerve and muscle functions along with much more. You do have to consider one thing while using beets and that is not to cook them for long as they lose the phytonutrients the longer they are cooked. Hence, for my recipe, I’m lightly frying them over high flame which quickly cooks them and keeps the inside soft and moist.Healthy-Beetroot-CutletAs I’ve mentioned above, I’m using seasonal vegetables in this like carrots, potatoes, capsicum, etc and the mix of all these vegetable makes this recipe even more healthy and colorful. Since it’s all lovey-dovey, I’m using the heart shape cookie cutter to give them a perfect heart shape. Here’s a picture of How I made them and also, I decorated one of the heart cutlets with a simple mint yogurt dressing:heart-shaped-valentines-cutletOnce you’ve had all your veggies+beets mixed together, it’s time to add some kind of binder to help cutlets hold its shape while frying. I’m using a mix of oatmeal flour and almond flour which I had bought for a cookie recipe but you can use any other flour or even bread for this. That’s it the mixture is ready and it will take 10 minutes to make 6 heart shape cutlets (medium side)beetroot-vegan-recipeThese ‘Healthy Beetroot Cutlet (Valentines Heart Patties-V-GF)’ also make for a great burger stuffing or serve them along with a hot cuppa joe for a perfect little snack. No matter how or when you serve them, they always make everyone happy. So go ahead and make them for your someone special and enjoy them together this Valentines.

    I tried beets as a youth and hated them. It was not until about 2 years ago I tried GOOD beets. There is a BIG difference between canned and fresh beets and I am so glad I gave them another try! Your recipe looks so good! Will give it a try!

    Molly, not only are these beet patties perfect for Valentines Day (red color and all), but they sound absolutely delicious! I am definitely planning to make these because my husband and I both love beets. I also am excited to make these for my gluten free (and veggie) daughter. I have a few questions. Is capsicum the same as bell pepper? Where do you find mango powder? I am thinking that I could grind up freeze dried mango which I have seen in the stores or use lemon juice as you suggest.

      Hi Wendy, Thanks for visiting and I'm so glad you liked the beetroot cutlets. Yes, capsicum is 'bell peppers' and you can completely skip dry mango powder as its used to add a little bit of tang to the savory recipe. But the frozen dried mango may not work as its going to make it sweet. Add lemon juice or just omit it completely. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Valentines to You'll :)
