This week has been quite rainy. It's still warm, but just really wet. I've caught a cold, but have also many things going on at the moment, so I can't really let that stop me. I also feel that comfort food is the right choice of the moment, and therefore made some vegetarian burgers to indulge in.
I made these veggie burger patties that are full of good proteins. The patties themselves are vegan and they contain kabuki peas, pea protein flakes, and fava bean flour. These made very tasty burgers and the patties held very well together.
Kabuki pea burgers
1 cup cooked kabuki peas
½ cup pea protein flakes
2 garlic cloves
1 green chilli
1 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp fava bean flour
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
Handful of fresh coriander
Homemade carrot bun
Smoked chilli pickle
Cook the kabuki peas and briefly cook the finely chopped onion, garlic and chilli in olive oil. Also cook the pea protein flakes as per packet instructions.
Mix all the ingredients together and purée the peas slightly. I always like to leave some whole ones as well.
Shape burgers from the mix and fry on both sides in vegetable oil until brown.
Serve with any veggie burger fixtures you like. I served them with homemade carrot buns, fried halloumi, pea shoots, smoked chilli pickle and blue tortilla chips on the side.
