Bean free vegan broccoli burger patties
Serves: 8 burger patties
  • 180 g broccoli florets
  • ca. 90 g cavolo Nero (or kale)
  • 300 g frozen peas
  • 1 stick of celery
  • 1 big white onion
  • 90 g rolled oats
  • 50 g tigernut flour
  • 2 tbsp (cooking liquid) water
  • 40 g pecans or macadamias (optional)
  • 2 tsp mixed dried Italian herbs (I used rosemary, thyme, and oregano, if you use fresh double the amount)
  • ½-1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 8 burger buns (like my yeast free "Cauliflower Sandwich Breads", see link above)
  • My "Carrot Ketchup" or other condiments (see link above)
  • Salad, veggies and other toppings of your choice
  1. Start with cleaning and preparing all of the vegetable.
  2. Bring a big pot of water to the boil, and put in the cavolo nero (or kale), after two minutes add the broccoli florets and let them boil for ca. 5 more minutes. Then add in the frozen peas and boil for two minutes more. Drain (keep some of the cooking liquid) and set aside to allow it to cool down for a bit.
  3. Chop up the celery and add it to a food processor together with the broccoli, cabbage, and peas. Process for a few seconds, make sure to still leave some texture. Transfer to a medium large bowl.
  4. In the meantime, heat a little coconut oil in a small pan and sauté the onion for 2-3 minutes (you can also add garlic if you wish).
  5. Transfer the onions to the bowl with the broccoli mix. Add the oats, tigernut flour, chopped up nuts of your choice (I used pecans), a bit of the cooking liquid, herbs and salt.
  6. Mix it well, I found this easiest to do by hand.
  7. If the “dough” is a bit to wet adjust by adding a bit extra of the oats or tigernut flour. If it is too wet add a bit more of the cooking liquid. And form the burger patties with your hands. This portion makes 8 big burger patties, about 1-1½ cm thick.
  8. In a large pan, heat some oil and cook the broccoli burger patties for 2-3 minutes on each side, until golden. Watch out the burn easily if you have the heat to high.
  9. Serve them on a burger bun (like my yeast free "Cauliflower Sandwich Breads", see link above) with lettuce, fresh or grilled veggies, and my great "Carrot Ketchup" (see link above).
  10. These burger patties are quite filling, we can only eat one per person, so this recipe serves 4-8 people, depending on your appetite ;)
