    Can you do some student recipes/ cheap recipes for some people who are going university and have a small budget? Thanks

  3. DarkXenith says:

    Barry, you need to watch Beetlejuice…. XD

  4. Mary Reed says:

    I’ve never seen beets packaged like that. Are they cooked and peeled? If I can only find raw here, how would I prepare them? Boiled like a potato? If so, for how long?

  5. Jamal Tyrone says:

    Whoever did the intro for this channel should do a better one for Off The Ranch.

  6. FR3 At Last says:

    You Need to watch BeetleJuice! Seriously! Funny…👍🚍

    LOVE <3

  8. Philippa Frédérique says:

    I bet caramelised onions would be amazing on that burger as well

  9. notthere83 says:

    Beetroot? Vegetarian?! Something that doesn't make you gain 20 pounds 3 seconds after you swallow?
    Am I on the right channel?! o_O
    (I'm of course kidding – it's great to see that Barry actually cooks healthy things here and there (that frying with lots of oil aside) and this looks like a delicious recipe…)

  10. tobortine says:

    Add blue cheese. Blue cheese + beetroot = heaven

  11. Hurbster says:

    As long as I can't taste the beetroot, I'm in 😉

  12. notthere83 says:

    "Use the hand" – Ah, I'd like to meet someone after whom I can say "That's what she said". 😉

  13. Danielle Vaughan says:

    I think the biggest reason I like your videos is because of the passion you have for what you do. I love the excitement.

  14. Kevin Liddle says:

    Any suggestions on a substitute for the breadcrumbs? Daughter has celiac disease and I'm always looking for healthy options. My go to is rolled oats but there is always a risk of cross contamination at the manufacturer.

  15. Kerry Neal says:

    It looks delicious. I normally only eat pickled beetroot but it might be different in a burger. Might give it a try sometime.
    We used to grow cress in egg shells at school and also beans on wet paper towels in a jar.

  16. Catherine Hawkwind says:

    I’m not vegan or vegetarian but I always enjoy the creativity of these sort of dishes! Definitely not opposed to seeing more, plus they’re always so colourful!

  17. Chrisanna Fabela says:

    You should do a full vegan meal

  18. ViaTheMind says:

    I remember those cress sandwiches. I thought i was the only one that did lol

  19. Daniel Rose says:

    barry you have the old instagram logo in your social media card!

  20. Susanne G says:

    This is awesome we just launched beet burgers at my restaurant

  21. kriannon says:

    we grew alfalfa sprouts at school in science…

  22. gfv Tay says:

    You should have kept the water from the chickpea can, can made some vegan meringue 🙂
    Love the burger 🍔

  23. Sho Lowther says:

    you NEED to watch beetle juice

  24. Innocent_Bystander says:

    If you say "Beetroot Juice" 3 times, does it summon the ghost of this abomination to haunt you for the rest of your protein deficient days? /jk

  25. Sharon Hill says:

    Boston’s face looks like Darth Vader’s mask

  26. markiangooley says:

    Mike Jeavons can eat one during his Week on Vegan Food…

  27. HonestSpiritual says:

    Just wanted to point out that this is not a vegan burger since you added an egg to the burger mixture. Vegans eat strictly none animal based food. Vegetarians are more flexible in eating foods with eggs, butter, or milk. So this can be a recipe for vegetarians or a healthy alternative, but not vegans.

  28. hazem81 says:

    Burger is wonderful but can you put in the oven to become more healthy?
      And always put us more health recipes thanks for your efforts

  29. Nicole says:

    Looks delicious!

  30. TrashLord Lord of the Trash says:


  31. Liam Spoonman says:

    Love the veggie recipes!

  32. Natalie Gray says:

    Barry, that burger was starting to look delicious, but you killed it dead when you threw the avocados on there.

  33. Kevin All Over the World says:

    Dare I ask why your beets are in a bag? Are they manufactured?

  34. DarKuan says:

    The burger tectonics here are a little crazy

  35. allan fulton says:

    That's so odd that before it's cooked it looks like ground beef.

  36. allan fulton says:

    I might actually try this burger without the chili but what is hallumi.

  37. allan fulton says:

    I'm going to try the million dollar shortbread next week when I go grocery shopping.

  38. kira w says:

    Help mikej he has to do a week on vegan and he can not cook

  39. Kristen Thomas-Rivera says:

    Hello, I was wondering why you didn't cook this on the griddle on your stove. If you use cooking spray on the griddle you can cook all parts of this dish and toast the bun at the same time.

  40. Hannah-Louise Dunlop says:

    Honestly, I think this looks like one of your best creations yet and you've definatley inspired me to give this a go tonight! Don't have breadcrumbs, but I'm pretty sure I could get away with using a bit of flaxmeal. Keep recipes like these coming Barry!

  41. Jason Allen says:

    Barry really should have put the gloves on before chopping the chili. The capsaicin in the chili tends to stick to the skin even after a quick hand wash and you stand the chance of essentially macing yourself if you touch your eyes. I personally prefer using disposable nitrile gloves for handling chilies, raw meat, or anything messy/sticky. You can usually find them in the medical section of your favorite discount store for about US$10 for a box of 100.

  42. ledzepgirlnmful says:

    Thanks for this recipe, can't wait to try this out!

  43. toni barlow says:

    watching your videos honestly makes me so so happy

  44. Metalpug79 says:

    If Barry were to watch Beetlejuice, I can’t be the only who can totally picture him walking around the house in the BTS Vlog videos doing a Beetlejuice impression. Haha I can already hear it

  45. Super Bowl Browns says:

    Hey I'd love for some more vegan recipes!!

  46. Megan Martin says:

    I love your videos and recipes Barry but this looks like the burger spongebob and mr krabs give to the health inspector 😭

  47. mark grant says:

    its a myth that seeds add to the heat of a chili the heat comes fro the pith and rind

  48. Clare Hughes says:

    This looks delicious!

  49. Dylan Nelson says:

    This definitely killed the health inspector in SpongeBob

  50. TheCotzi says:

    linseeds with water replace the egg to make the Patty vegan letting it furm up over night makes it even better

  51. HerrStein says:

    I would love to see a good recipe for Boston Cream doughnuts or pie!

  52. ZDGrant123 says:

    can you do a vegan recipe not just a vegetarian one?

  53. jorgemt62 says:

    No meat? Hmmm

  54. Laura B. says:

    Barry! You NEED to see Beetlejuice! You and Mrs Barry should get it ASAP for movie night. 😀

  55. Ziinea says:

    You should do an aquafaba recipe!

  56. NAME says:

    (samone23),,you know when you've found a new channel and your like,,yeh I'm loving this,,,,I'm especially loving the behind the scenes😁👍

  57. Robert Horton says:

    Actually looks really nice

  58. Fruit Bat says:

    Yay! Swap the egg for a flax egg to make it vegan. More vegan and veg please! Love it

  59. MrsInAbox says:

    Tehehe, I am enjoying watching the reflection in the splashback of your cooker 🙂

  60. Budget Bogans says:

    Yummy! love beetroot on burgers…or anything really or just on it's own 🙂

  61. Dani_Checkerz says:

    Hi! I was wondering if you would consider making a “home restaurant” type video where you make an appetizer(s), entree meal, and dessert, for inspiration if your hosting a dinner party ? Love your videos, big fan of your channel!

  62. Ahmet Kasapoğlu says:

    My boi here remaking the nasty patty from Spongebob

  63. Heta Lehtonen says:

    Do the beetroots need to be preboiled? I've only got fresh beetroots in my local supermarket, and am wondering if they should be boiled first.

  64. Station Plaza says:

    The egg is a good idea. Especially if you want to make a batch of them for freezing. They could then be cooked from frozen under a medium heated grill for about 8-10 minutes either side.

  65. hemmuu1 says:

    Thank you for making this! I remember suggesting that you make vegetarian burger patty! This looks delicious, I think I’m going to give it a try! I’ll just omit the mushrooms because I don’t like them!

  66. Kitakat says:


  67. Mariana Stelianou says:

    This shirt has been around since the beginning of MVK!

  68. Daniel Rowlands says:

    I gave this a go. Swapped the mango chutz for barbecue sauce and stuck some bacon on. Was actually a good burger!

  69. Alice Rose says:

    Believe it or not, a few tablespoons of the liquid from the tin of chickpeas (aquafaba!) makes an amazing egg replacer!! Sub the egg with aquafaba to make these burgers vegan! 🙂

  70. pam wilkinson says:

    Can I use raw beets? I don't know what the difference is.

  71. Victoria Thomas says:

    Probably already been mentioned but if you kept the chickpea water you drained (and I think you whip it) then use it to replace the egg this recipe would be vegan.

  72. Signe of Horses says:

    Love beetroot burgers.. I buy them in the store, sorry, this looks soooooo much nicer. And the mango chutney sounds genius.

  73. 402BIGROB says:

    That's not vegetarian you put an egg in there just FYI

  74. Ju says:


  75. Shanna Orion says:

    You're awesome! Very entertaining 👍🏼

  76. Victoria Storey says:

  78. Eva Sjöberg says:

    Hi! If the egg isn't an option, what would you use instead to get the binding effect?

  79. Ashi Maps says:

    Made this with my hubby today, with only a slight variation using plain lettuce and no avocado. It was yuummm!! 😋

  80. Momma Gaige says:

    Here in the states, it was all of us grew up growing alfalfa sprouts and making homemade butter and/ yogurt…well, if you were in private school anyway…

  81. Scott8588 says:

    Beetroot? You want beetroot?

  82. Will Lynch says:

    You should watch Beetlejuice. It's a great film. D'ya like it?

  83. fran rose says:

    Aaaah don‘t sneeze into your hands!

  84. tylerr89 says:

    Wtf, an egg!?

  85. Key's eyebrow scar says:

    You're so neat when you cook, what happens when you're testing gadgets?? like, you didn't even spill anything in this video!! I'm impressed.

  86. LaylaTB88 says:

    Made this today, it was so delicious 🙂 but struggeling with it crumbling a bit too much :/

  87. Olive Adams says:


  88. Lori-hime says:


  89. crazy ferret lady says:

    I am so making a large batch of these to bung in the freezer, looks amazing!!

  90. Evelina Mewa says:

    Yes! Thank-you! Something I can make Vegan! Thank-you so very much! (yep, I'll skip the egg, and use 1 tbs flaxseed soaked in 3 to 4 tbs water, it'll bind it well enough, maybe add a sprinkling of black salt to it to get that eggy flavor in there). I watch all your recipes, knowing I can't really make them, so it is a happy surprise to find one I can eat. 🙂

  92. eddyk says:

    Frying halloumi with no oil works much better.

  93. Dominic Hess says:

    Maybe it’s because I’m an American, but jelly??

  94. Jacq Paschoud says:

    Made these today. Did not put in a bun but served with baked beans and sauté potatoes and a bit of seracha. Pleased with myself that I managed to make them without touching with my hands at all, so no rubber glove required! Grated beetroot with the food processor and shaped the burgers with a straight handled Indian ladle. I think an ice cream/mashed potato scoop would work too. I had held off making these because I thought it would be a messy process but turned out no mess at all! And they were really nice to eat.

  95. Felicity Lydia Summerfield says:

    This looks SO good!!! Only thing I would add is…caramelised onions!! Also who doesn’t love a messy burger lol

  96. shamapes says:

    2 things my brother HATES- beets and chickpeas: but I will try this recipe, and see if he notices- heheh Thanks Barry! Will let ya know how it will turn out. I want it with golden beetroot and candy cane beetroot; those have been available at the farmers markets for awhile, and I wanted to try them.
    Any suggestions on freezing them: do you need to thaw them out before you cook them? And how long do they last in the freezer?

  97. Phillip Gunner says:

    I remember Growing caress

  98. crazydee2704 says:

    Looks delish! Favourite moment, squeaking of the glove when you mixed everything together! Fab!

  99. Chris Secondi says:

    Hey Barry, me again. Can you do some yummy dairy/lactose free recipes please😁

  100. Ashes, Ashes says:

    Ground up beets! Not slices! I was today years old when you set me straight– thanks!
