NOW ONTO THE RECIPE! Green Vegetable Burger
Prep-work for this garden vegetable burger is super easy. The patty is made with a handful of green vegetables including broccoli, spinach, zucchini, onion, garlic, gluten-free flour, and spices.
To make these savory burgers you will need to ‘PULSE’ all the green veggies in a food processor first. Pulse until it looks like quinoa. This should not take long, a couple of ‘pulse’ and you are done. If you let it run for too long you will end up with a mushy paste of veggies and that will be too difficult to bind.
This patty has a perfect balance of wet to dry ratio. But, if you want to experiment and add more sauces to the patty then make sure to add extra flour to the patties to help hold its shape better.
Any change in the wet ingredients may throw the recipe off balance. I have cooked my patties in an air fryer @350 degrees F for 10 minutes. The other option is to pan-cook the patties until evenly brown from both sides.
These patties are crisp on the outside with a soft tender inside.
VERY IMPORTANT STEP!
After the veggies are pulsed, take a ball of pulsed vegetables in between your palms and squeeze out all the water. This is a very important step. Please do not skip through this. Get rid of all the water from the vegetables to prevent mushy burgers.
Now add flour, spices, and shape like patties. The thickness and size of the patty is completely up to you. With this mixture, I got 6 large patties.
TIME TO ASSEMBLE!
The cooked patty was then layered in between the Pepperidge Farm® Hamburger Buns, drizzled with an ample supply of homemade cilantro mayo, making the burger burst with even more flavor. And to top it, I have added some onions and tomatoes for the crunch.
Finally, covering the burger up with a soft bun. This burger is absolutely perfect for any occasion, whether it be a birthday party or an outdoor get-together.
These burgers will literally “wow” your guests. On top of it, they are extremely healthy and are topped oﬀ with many essential nutrients.
MAKE AHEAD PATTIES! Green Vegetable Burger
These patties can be made ahead of time. Simply, shape and half-cook them on each side. Allow it to cool completely. Wrap each patty in between wax paper and store in a plastic bag in your freezer. Freezes well for 2 months.
To thaw, place patties in the fridge overnight. Pan cook them on medium heat until evenly brown from both sides.
As a bonus, this recipe can be easily doubled or tripled for larger parties. Bursting with many diﬀerent ﬂavors this burger entices anyone’s taste buds into a heaven like state.
Additionally, it can be eaten by a variety of diets due to its healthy patty.
