Cheryl's Veggie-Nut Patties

Recipe by  

"Vegan, gluten-free, and paleo-friendly veggie burger patties with a nutty taste. I came up with this recipe when I had a hard time finding any recipes for veggie burgers or patties that were grain-free and bean-free, and which actually contained vegetables. Both my husband and I love it. He had his on a burger bun with lettuce, avocado, and tomato."

Directions

  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add butternut squash cubes, cover, and steam until tender, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer squash to a bowl and mash; measure 1/2 cup mashed squash and reserve.
  2. Place the steamer insert back into the saucepan and refill with water to reach just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower and broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, 2 to 6 minutes.
  3. Process walnuts, almonds, and sunflower seeds together in a blender or food processor until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Add broccoli and cauliflower, blend until finely chopped and incorporated.
  4. Blend 1/2 cup mashed squash, salt, cumin, and black pepper into the nuts mixture until well-mixed. If mixture is too thick to process, transfer it to a bowl and mix by hand.
  5. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into patties.
  6. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook patties in hot oil until browned and heated through, about 2 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use any combination of desired nuts and seeds to equal 1 cup.
  • For even more flavor, toast the nuts in a dry skillet over medium heat for a few minutes until fragrant and lightly browned.
  • Cooked pumpkin might work as a substitute for the butternut squash.
  • For a shortcut, use a frozen (defrosted) cauliflower/broccoli mix.

Yum. Yum. Yum. These are so good. I used cooked pumpkin and I toasted the nuts. I used pecans instead of walnuts and pumpkin seeds mixed with the sunflower seeds. I added a bit of coriander too. I fried for about five minutes per side though. They came out crispy and perfect. Thanks!

These were a surprising hit at my house. I honestly was not as blown away, but my wife loved them. She is not eating Paleo, so had them on a whole wheat bun with either Havarti or horseradish sauce. Perhaps I did something wrong, but they were very crumbly. Next time I will add some egg to try to help hold them together.
