The Best Vegan Protein Patties THE recipe to make for the Fourth of July!

there’s no more going to get togethers and not having anything fun or delicious to eat.

truly, you should bring The Best Vegan Protein Patties to a party and let all of your non-vegan friends + fam try them.

i can guarantee they will think they’re super yummy and reminiscent of “turkey” burgers.

these burgers are high in protein with hemp hearts, flax meal, tofu, and chickpeas! i love making foods that are nutrient-dense, incredibly flavorful and absolutely satisfying.

i seasoned the patties with garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt, pepper, mustard and cilantro, but you can add any seasonings you like!

you can also swap out the cilantro for another herb. parsley, chives and even basil would be fantastic.

after blending all the ingredients in a food processor, i used a large ice cream scoop to make sure the mixture was distributed as evenly as possible.

the mixture is quite sticky, but not too sticky that it’s hard to work with. i recommend ever so lightly wetting your hands.

The Best Vegan Protein Patties are first pan fried to get a crispy outside and then baked to perfection.

i cooked the patties on each side for 2 minutes in avocado oil before popping them in the oven to bake.

this recipe is extremely easy to make and only takes about 15 minutes to cook all in all. this is bound to be a new staple in your household!
