Craving comfort food, and especially a big burger, but prefer not to eat meat? We’ve got you covered. This vegan recipe is a nice twist on a ‘classic’ burger. The chickpeas in these patties will leave you feeling full for a long time and are high in protein, making them an excellent vegan replacement for a traditional meat burger.
A welcome addition to the patties is the cauliflower, this so-called ‘cruciferous vegetable’ is naturally high in fibre and vitamin B. The high amount of fibre is excellent for weight loss and digestion. Having your burger on a traditional burger bun is of course also a classic and very good option!
Want to make this meal extra healthy? Serve the patties with a salad on the side,
