  • 1 food processor or box grater
  • 1 mixing bowl
  • 1 set of measuring spoons
  • 1 spatula
  • 1 frying pan with lid non stick


  • 3 small cooked beets (coarsely chopped) 300 grams or 2 cups chopped
  • ¼ small onion
  • 1 egg
  • 6-7 Tablespoon semolina flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or more by taste
  • ¼ teaspoon coriander
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil or more as needed for frying


  • Using a food processor, grate chopped beets and onions for about one minutes or until finely grated.
  • In a mixing bowl, add grated beets and onions, eggs, semolina flour, salt and spices. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until semolina flour thickens.
  • Preheat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Using a spoon, scoop the beet mix and form a bowl with your hands. Carefully place the bowl onto a hot frying pan and flatten it gently with the spatula to form a cutlet. Repeat with the rest of the mix.
  • Fry on one side for two minutes or until crisp on medium heat. Flip the cutlets, cover the pan and cook on low heat for another 2-3 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°F. Enjoy hot or chilled!


  • the recipe yields 8 medium cutlets.
  • use box grater instead of food processor to shred the vegetables.
  • add more salt and spices if needed. I do not add a lot, because we love the earthy taste of beets.
  • do not be tempted to add more flour. Semolina flour thickens and absorbs moisture.
  • the mix supposed to be little runny, like a very thick pancakes dough.
