Cook beets, black beans (if not using canned) and brown rice - all separately.
When the black beans are cooked and tender, mash them in a large bowl.
Gently mix in all the other ingredients until incorporated. The mixture will be slightly sticky and have a lot of texture, not smooth.
Divide the mixture into the size and amount of burgers desired. Flatten them to an even consistency.
Lay the burgers on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approx. 10 minutes at 350.
At this point you can freeze them for future meals or fry them on the stove in a griddle pan with a little olive oil until the sides are crisp and griddle lines form on each side. A few minutes per side.
Top with avocado, salt, pepper, salsa...anything you would like - it's your burger!
