PULP PATTIES— that’s what I call what I attempted to make! I had heard that burgers could be made from the pulp created from juicing. I made a large pitcher of juice for my friends and I. I had so much pulp that I wanted to try it!
Here is a blurb from my favorite vegan Facebook page “VEGANISM“:
“This is the good part…..I take the pulp and put it in a large mixing bowl, add cumin, turmeric, curry, cayenne, one full cup of fresh ground flax seeds, Bragg Amino Acid, two cups of sprouted beans (you fan skip the beans of you want) and chopped red oinions. I mix the concoction thoroughly and then form them into patties and place them ever so gently on a baking sheet. I put them in the oven for thirty to forty minutes at 400 degrees.
They are delicious and full of fiber, vitamins, enzymes, no fat, very little if any calories and very filling. For all of your non-vegan friends and kids, serve them like that meat alliterative that we all hate so much. Put them between a healthy sprouted bun, add some tomatoes and onions and go ahead and buy some organic sugar free ketchup and mustard and your non-vegan doubters will be shocked on how delicious these organic vegetables patties are……….”
As I read this back now I realize that I tried to fry them.. mistake number one because they came apart a little plus I had to use oil- too much! Secondly, I didn’t have ground flax seed– I think a binder like that would have helped.
The patties had flavor but the texture was off.
The FUNNY PART is — the meat eater friend of ours ate it- the vegetarians and myself .. not so much! Meat eaters will eat anything lol.. hehe just kidding! I will make this again- I juice every day- so I have lots of pulp that I hate wasting! I will let you know when I get it right.
