1. Preparation of high protein veggie burger recipe
We prepare the dough for the burgers. Steam all the vegetables in the recipe, then the potatoes, the Sicilian broccoli, the peas, the diced carrot, and the chopped onion. The vegetables will be cooked just 10 minutes, while the potatoes will take 20 to 30 minutes to cook.
Once cooked, reduce the still-hot potatoes to a puree in a large bowl. Add the rice cooked previously in salted water, the parmesan, and finally add salt and pepper. Work these ingredients first with the car of a spoon, then with your hands, until you obtain a well-mixed dough.
Now add all the previously steamed vegetables and corn to the dough. Work the mixture gently with your hands to distribute the vegetables evenly in the mashed potatoes and rice.
Transfer the mixture obtained between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out with the help of a rolling pin not too thinly, more or less 1 cm thick. With the help of a pasta bowl or a cup, form the burgers.
Now pass the burgers obtained in the gluten-free breadcrumbs, pressing them lightly to make the breadcrumbs stick well. At this point, you can decide whether to cook them immediately or freeze them in the freezer where they will be kept for 2 – 3 months.
Arrange the burgers on an oven plate, pour a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil over them, and cook them in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 15 minutes, using the grill function to brown them well on the surface. Let the burgers cool slightly before serving. These burgers can also be cooked in a non-stick pan; you will just need to grease the pan and cook the burgers exactly as you would for meat burgers.
