Divine Portobello Mushroom Burger Patties
These divine portobello mushroom burger patties are so heavenly! I love making these when I need a healthy alternative to meaty burgers.
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 cup portobello mushrooms diced into 1-centimetre chunks
- 1 cup kale roughly torn
- 1 cup chickpeas rinsed and drained
- ¼ cup spring onions
- 1 clove garlic finely diced
- 1 medium egg whisked
- ½ teaspoon curry powder unsweetened
- 2 teaspoons mustard powder
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 tablespoons lupin flakes flakes
- 2 tablespoons yeast flakes
- ½ teaspoon tamarind sauce
- ½ teaspoon tamarind paste
- ½ teaspoon white wine vinegar
- 1 pinch cloves ground
- 1 pinch chilli powder ground
- Add chickpeas to saucepan, soak with water, and heat over medium flame for 8 to 12 minutes or until chickpeas are soft. Drain and set aside. Once cool, add half of the chickpeas to the mixing bowl and mash with a masher (chunks are okay!).
- Next, add the mushrooms, the rest of the chickpeas, kale, garlic, spring onions, spices, vinegar, tamarind sauce and paste. Mix until just coated.
- Add the egg, nutritional yeast flakes and lupin flakes (or GF bread crumbs) and mix gently with a large spoon until well combined. Then, using dampened hands, form the mixture into palm-sized patties and press down to flatten; the mixture must hold its shape; if it doesn’t, add a bit extra lupin flakes/bread crumbs.
- Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to frypan and heat over medium flame. Once hot, carefully add 2 to 3 patties to the pan and fry for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy. Don’t worry if the patty looks a little underdone; it will firm up once rested.
- Enjoy sandwiched and sauced or on top of a summer salad!
