Recently, we have been experimenting with veggie burgers. So far we have tried beet, chickpea, bean and soy protein veggie burgers. We wanted to share on of our recipes. There is a downside to veggie burgers: they are very time consuming. Today we want to share with you an improvised attempt of a veggie burger made out of soy protein. Soy protein is really great because it is cheap and high in protein, which replaces meat and fish for vegetarians and vegans.
We had absolutely nothing in the pantry today but still ended up making a very tasty veggie burger patty.
Ingredients (makes 1 large veggie burger patty)
- 150 grams of soy protein
- 50 grams of oats
- ¾ tablespoon of olive oil
- ¼ of a large zucchini
- 1 teaspoon of cumin
- 1 teaspoon of coriander
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
Ground soy protein and oats together in a blender or food processor until a powder is formed. Remove from blender and reserve in a bowl.
Chop zucchini (courgette) into cubes and blend until a purée has formed.
Mix zucchini and soy protein + oat powder together, stir and add olive oil. With your hands form a circle about ¼ of an inch thick.
Heat a saucepan at medium heat and add a teaspoon of olive oil in which add cumin, coriander, turmeric and salt. Stir. Add the veggie burger patty to the saucepan and let cook turning the patty from time to time. In 5-10 minutes you will have a delicious veggie burger patty ready to be eaten.
You could also add finely chopped onions and/or garlic to the patty for extra taste. So there you have it, a quick, efficient and healthy veggie burger!
