Oil-free, plant protein-rich and irresistible but healthy patties.
The combination of mung beans, chickpeas, lentils and buckwheat makes sure that these patties have a rich taste that you don’t get tired of easily.
They can be quite versitile and we recommend that you make a bigger batch.
Dip them in your favorite sauce such as our Oil-free Creamy Whole Peanut Sauce and you have dinner.
Take them with you for a great lunch on the go.
Even plain, they make for a great afternoon snack or even protein-rich breakfast!
Optimized for Health and Weight-loss
These patties are made from whole natural plant foods only!
No oil or sugars protect your health and keep you trim and lean.
This is a bean-rich recipe. Mung beans, lentils and chickpeas are an excellent source of zinc, copper, and iron as well as healthy proteins and resistant starch.
The buckwheat and the beans are slow to digest so you are full for longer and do not overeat.
Sesame and flaxseed are rich in essential Omega-3 fats for brain and overall health.
Garlic, onions an turmeric are immune system boosters and cancer-protective.
You also get your share of B vitamins through the nutritional yeast.
Fresh chili, parsley, pepper as well as the cumin and coriander add to the antioxidant punch of this meal.
Overall, these patties might look ordinary but they truly are a health food!

- When you add sesame seeds last, the texture of the patties becomes that much crunchier, which is how I prefer them.
- Add the finely chopped parsley also last to preserve its green color and add a fresh feel to them.
- When chopping the beans, you can add some water if the mixture is too dry to make sure that everything is mixed well.
- Add more ground flax seeds to the mix if the mixture doesn’t stick well together.
