All About Meatless Monday on The Kitchen

Check out Jeff's meat-free burger featuring beets as the base.

Do your New Year's resolutions include some form of better-for-you eating?  The Kitchen's co-hosts introduced a doable idea this morning: the Meatless Monday effort, which promotes meat-free eating one day each week. Here on FN Dish, we participate in the measure every Monday by sharing new, approachable recipes that, while vegetarian, are full of the bold, fresh flavors any carnivore would crave. Check out some of our past comforting picks, like gooey mac and cheese, baked eggs and veggie burritos, and read on below to see how Jeff Mauro, ever the meat lover, ditched the beef burger for a beet-based one.

Made with a hearty filling of ground beets, crunchy walnuts and chewy brown rice, Jeff's easy Beet Burger with Citrus-Caper Aioli is seared until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, just like a traditional beef patty. He swaps out the classic bun in favor of a lighter alternative — cool, crisp Bibb lettuce leaves, which serve as cups that can be topped with the beet burger and a dollop of his creamy, tangy aioli laced with orange juice.
