I’ve made these burgers many times, the funny thing is, no-one seems to notice that they’re vegetarian and actually brimming with broccoli. Taste and texture wise, they’re quite meaty. I find them the perfect way to use up leftovers. Like mashed (sweet) potato and ends of bread. Rye sourdough in my case.
1 head of broccoli (boiled or steamed), then mashed or chopped.
100 gram of grated pecorino or parmesan
1/2 cup of (your choice of) flour
1 scant teaspoon of baking powder
a sprinkle of black pepper
bread crumbs, preferably sourdough
Optional: leftover mashed potato, shallots, parsley,...
The extra greens do make it harder to hide that they’re, well..., green.
A little with sweet chilli sauce is a bonus, a recipe for that is coming soon.
