Beetroot burgers with tahini dressing

I have been thinking about making veggie burgers for quite long time and I am not sure why it lasted so long.

Anyway, I bought some lovely beetroots in my favourite organic shop and I just made them. I could not believe how tasty they were. I could not stop eating them! The flavours go so well together and that dressing is great addition making the whole dish complete.
