Now before you start yowling about me trying to replace your burgers with (gasp) vegetables, I want to ask you: Do you like broccoli? If not, then I want to tell you, right now, that this can also be made with cauliflower. If you don’t like either one, then I suggest that you stop reading and head to your local burger joint.
However, if you like broccoli and cauliflower, then I can personally say that these patties are AWESOME. You don’t have to be a vegetarian to make these a regular part of your diet, they are just that good! I like to eat them with a little mayo, a slice of onion and some lettuce on a hamburger bun. They are also good with brown rice and a sprout salad. SometimesI make them for lunch and just eat sliced raw vegetables on the side. There are so many ways to eat these versatile patties, the possibilities are endless! They are also very easy to make, the recipe is below:
1 cup cooked broccoli or cauliflower
1 medium egg
1/4 cup shredded cheese, any kind you like, I prefer sharp cheddar but mozzarella is also yummy
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 teaspoon olive oil
seasoned salt and pepper to taste
Optional items to add if you like:
Cook broccoli or cauliflower until soft
Place in a bowl and mash with a fork
Stir in onion and cheese until well mixed
Beat egg with a dash of seasoned salt and pour into mixture and stir thoroughly
Heat skillet with olive oil in it
Form patties with your hands and drop in skillet.
Let cook until golden brown and then gently turn over
Cook the other side till golden brown and the egg is cooked
You can also cook this loose instead of forming into patties and serve in a hotdog bun with relish. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
