  • Ingredients for 4 large burgers:
  • 400g broccoli flowers (1 small head)
  • 1 can chickpeas (drained and smashed) - do not throw away the liquid: it's called aquafaba and makes a lovely egg-white replacement when whipped up!
  • 1 large potato
  • 1 small onion or shallot, finely diced
  • chilli flakes
  • fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • nutritional yeast
  • breadcrumbs
  • lemon zest
  • 100g toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped


  1. Boil the broccoli flowers and potato in a large pot of salted water until the potatoes are tender enough to be mashed.
  2. Drain the veggies well and roughly mash with a fork,
  3. Add the onion, smashed chickpeas, chilli flakes, mint leaves , walnuts, nutritional yeast, lemon zest and taste to adjust with salt & pepper,
  4. Form the burgers on an oven tray lined with parchment paper, I use a ring to help shape the burgers into a round form,
  5. Top with breadcrumbs/panko to protect the burgers from burning and also to give them an extra layer of crunchiness,
  6. Bake in a hot oven until golden brown,
  7. Serve with buns, sliced tomatoes, caramelised onions, lettuce, sauces ... and let your guests create their own burgers with their favourite toppings. I like adding jalapeƱo to mine!
