Gluten free, vegan cauliflower patties recipe
How awesome are burger patties?! I love them, they are so easy to make and they are furthermore healthy if they are not deep fried. I have been experimenting with all kind of veggies like zucchinis, carrots, celery or cauliflower to make these fritters. This cauliflower patties recipe is my absolute favorite. Aside from the incredibly taste, these patties are also…
- low in fat
- gluten free
- egg free
- dairy free
- relatively low carb
They are also high in fiber and protein. Yes, high in protein because of the chickpeas, chickpea flour and the flax seeds. The flax seeds contain furthermore omega 3 fatty acids which is a big bonus.
These fritters are versatile
You can eat these fritters as a snack with mustard or a cashew cream cheese spread. Another possibility is to serve them as veggie burgers or add them to your buddha bowl like you can see in the following picture. These cauliflower patties contain wholefood plant-based ingredients only. The recipe is so simple and these patties taste very delicious. They actually taste so good that I always have to resist devouring them right out of the pan. Doing this is not a great idea, as I tend to burn my mouth.
Easy to make cauliflower patties recipe
Blend half of a boiled cauliflower head (250 g) with 1 can of chickpeas (300 g), a half cup of chickpea flour (60 g) and 1.5 tbsp of ground flaxseeds. Add some parsley, garlic, cumin and salt + pepper to taste. Form 8-10 patties and bake in a lightly greased pan from both sides (about 5 minutes each) until golden brown. You could also bake them in the oven if you don’t want to use any oil to fry them but it will take much longer. The sauce was made from cashews (soaked overnight) which I blended (on high speed) with water, a little bit dijon mustard, nutritional yeast flakes and also two cloves of garlic.
You could also includ these patties to the following healthy vegan buddha bowl: VEGAN BUDDHA BOWL WITH ROASTED CHICKPEAS
