A healthy… burger

Burgers typically aren’t what one would consider healthy.

These patties, though… truly tasty and great for your health!

For starters, they cover all the basics: only whole food ingredients with no dairy, no meat, no oil.

I always avoid oil in my cooking to ensure lower inflammation throughout the body, the health of arterial walls, pure blood, and healthy weight.

Instead, you get most of the calories here from healthy, whole chickpeas. Rich in resistant starch, complex carbohydrates, and fiber, chickpeas fill you up and supply energy for longer.

The fiber and resistant starch are super important as they prevent overeating, feed the good bacteria in your gut and improve immune function. They also play a vital role in the body’s detox process.

Cauliflower… one of the healthiest vegetables. It might look white but it is actually a green one! Rich in B vitamins and anticancer micronutrients, cauliflower is one vegetable that cares for your health!

And since we are talking about greens, savory, cumin, coriander, parsley. Spices are some of the most nutrient-dense greens that are nutritional powerhouses in a jar.

Last but not least, flax seeds – rich in anticancer lignans and anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fats, you get all nutritional bases covered!

And all those goodies are conservatively baked at a low temperature for the least amount of time possible to conserve most of that nutrition!

How to prepare Cauliflower Burger Patties?

These super flavorful patties are perfectly healthy meal that is also quite easy to prepare.

You will need a food processor. This is my favorite kitchen appliance that has saved me a lot of time and effort.

Actually, I use it so often that I can’t imagine eating plant-based without it. It is truly indispensable!

So, chop the cauliflower into florets and steam them for about 15 mins. When steamed the cauliflower stays drier. If you happen to boil it, be sure to drain it well or use a kitchen towel to dry it.

Then, place all ingredients in the food processor and blend until smooth. Take about a full tablespoon of the mixture and shape it into a ball. Then, slightly press on the surface to form a patty.

Bake them for about 20 mins and enjoy the super inviting smell that fills the air.

They are perfect served with a sauce, like my easy and Quick Universal Cashew Sauce.

Also great on a whole wheat bun with your favorite toppings.

Delicious Vegan Cauliflower Burger Patties!

Loaded with healthy plant-based protein, these Cauliflower Burger Patties make a perfect lunch, snack or dinner.



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Cut the cauliflower into florets and steam it for about 15 mins. If you boil it, it absorbs more water so be sure to drain it well or use a kitchen towel to dry it (or the patties mixture can become too wet).
  3. Place the steamed cauliflower, cooked chickpeas, and onion in a food processor. Blend until smooth.
  4. Put the mixture in a large bowl. Season with the spices (savory, cumin, paprika, coriander, parsley, salt, and black pepper). Add the ground flax seeds and stir everything well. Let it aside for 10 mins.
  5. Take about one full tablespoon of the mixture and roll it into a ball. Slightly press on the surface to shape it into a patty.
  6. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the patties.
  7. Bake for 20 mins. Enjoy!


  • I steam the cauliflower and it stays drier. If boiled, it absorbs more water and you might need to drain it well or use a kitchen towel to dry it so that the patty mixture doesn't get too wet. You can add some flour to thicken it also.
  • Keep in mind to rinse and drain the chickpeas well before chopping them in the processor. Canned chickpeas are often softer and moister than home-cooked chickpeas. Drain them well.
  • If your patty mixture turns out too wet, add some flour to thicken it. Don't forget to adjust the seasoning as well.

  1. I have mine mixed up and have rested, but they are too wet to make into patties. I have added over a cup of oat flour, but they are still soft. Are they supposed to be very wet? If so, I don’t think I can roll into a ball. I’ll just have to scoop them out and form into patties on baking sheet.

    • Hi, Susan. The mixture for the patties is not supposed to be too wet. Perhaps if you haven’t drained well the chickpeas or the cauliflower is boiled, it absorbs more water. That is why I steam it. It is OK to add some flour to thicken it, I use the ground flax seeds for this purpose also. You can add more flour and I guess than shape them with a spoon directly on the baking sheet.

      • I put it in the refrigerator for a few hours and I was able to make the patties. I needed the oats or I don’t think I could have. I should have added a little more seasoning because of that. But they turned out great. Thanks!
