Fully plant-based juice pulp veggie burgers that are spiced and filling!

Ever made juice and throw out a full bag of left over juice pulp and think, what a waste? Juicing is great but it does take out all of the fiber in the produce which contains necessary nutrients for the body.

So what can we do with this leftover juice pulp? juice pulp veggie burgers of course!

If you do not have any leftover juice pulp, you can still make these burgers! Simply add some grated beet, carrot and chopped kale to your burger mix.

These burgers are full of vegetables, nutrients and packed with flavor. You won’t miss the meat, promise.

Fiber is so important. Numerous physicians have written books about how most of us are fiber deficient!

Vegetable fiber, normalizes our bowel movements. As most of us know, dietary fiber increases the weight and size of your stool and softens it. TMI? Well it’s all necessary to know!

It also helps to lower cholesterol levels, control blood sugar levels., can aid in achieving a healthy weight, and helps you live longer!

What else can you make with leftover juice pulp? It can be used to make vegetable broth, add it to smoothies, or soups and stews.




Let's Talk About Juice Pulp

For this burger recipe, I recommend only using vegetable pulp. I juiced 1 peeled beet, 1 carrot, 2 celery stalks, and a small bunch of kale.

I love using the beet because it provides this burger with that red/brown meat-like color, great flavor and a ton of nutrients.


Sautée The Vegetables

Heat up 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat.

Add the chopped onion and mushrooms and cook for 5-7 minutes.

Next, add 3 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of ground black pepper, the juice pulp (or grated carrot, beet and chopped kale) and cook for another minute or two.

Add the ground cumin, smoked paprika powder and the drained and rinsed black beans.

Stir and cook for another 2-3 minutes.


Chop the Almonds

Add the raw almonds to your food processor or blender and pulse until they are roughly chopped.

Transfer into a bowl and set aside.


Make Burger 'Meat'

Add the sautéed vegetables to your food processor and blend until it becomes a paste.

It will look similar to ground meat.

I only pulsed my 'meat' a few times which left is with some chunks of mushroom and beans.


Make the Patties

Transfer your burger 'meat' to a large bowl, add the breadcrumbs and chopped almonds, and mix to combine.

With wet hands form 4-6 patties.


Pan Fry The Patties

Using a paper towel, quickly wipe your dirty skillet then add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil.

Add your patties, max 3 at a time and fry on each side on medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until browned and crispy.


Toast Your Buns and Get Your Topping Ready

For this burger, I highly recommend adding some steamed/sautéed kale, avocado slices and red onion.

I also add a bit of vegan mayo and ketchup, it's a mist in this household.

I followed the recipe . However , I used flax seed meal instead of almonds . I used green onion instead. Curry instead of paprika. Chickpeas instead of black beans . Arepa mix instead of bread crumbs .

So far so good .

Hi Andrea! Yes you can use a grill pan or BBQ! They are a bit more delicate than regular burger patties so a gentler hand and extra oil will work well!

Hi Liviu! These veggie burgers are definitely very delicate as there is no egg for a binder. You can add more mashed black beans (additional 1/4 cup) and/or a bit more breadcrumbs! Let me know if these tips work for you!

That was AWESOME!!! I cooked it in a cast iron pan with olive oil (and coconut oil) is the only oils I use.
I made a wrap with whole wheat. DELISH!!!

How much is a “small bunch of kale?” I am assuming it is actually a pretty large amount since the kale usually is sold as a GIGANTIC bunch.
