These crispy and chewy cauliflower burgers are a delicious, low-carb, vegetarian alternative with a Paleo twist. A veggie burger that even carnivores will love!
Imagine biting into a thick, biscuit-like, cauliflower-rice veggie burger—that’s made with just a handful of ingredients, yet bursting with flavorful spices! There are three, to be exact: turmeric, garlic, and parsley. But for so few ingredients, this cauliflower burger truly delivers deliciousness!
Turmeric gives these “burgers” an extra dose of antioxidants and immunity-boosting power. Plus, this spice gives these veggie patties a lovely orange color.
The batter for these burgers will be loose, but don’t worry. Like a biscuit, they’ll bake up nicely from the almond and coconut flour mix. Since the batter is loose, you’ll need to use a measuring cup to form the burgers. They may crumble a bit, but that’s okay. With your hands around the burgers, just cup any pieces that fall off to form them back together.
To serve these delicious burgers, I recommend pairing them with coconut flour biscuits and topping them with sliced avocado. But feel free to add as many paleo condiments as you’d add to a regular burger. The cauliflower burger flavor is mild and very adaptable. It’s an easy, low-carb, veggie-packed dinner that will motivate anyone to eat their veggies!
Easy Cauliflower Turmeric Burgers
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
3 large eggs
3 cups cauliflower (riced in a food processor)
½ cup almond flour
3 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon coconut oil (melted)
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a slip pad.
Rice the cauliflower by placing sliced chunks in a blender or food processor. Then pulse until it turns into “rice.
In a large bowl, combine cauliflower rice, almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder, turmeric, and parsley.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs and coconut oil. Pour over the cauliflower mixture, and stir to combine.
Using a ¼ measuring cup, scoop the batter onto the baking sheet to form burgers. They’ll be a bit runny, but that’s ok; they form together nicely after baking.
Cup both your hands around the batter and gently push any pieces that crumble back together.
Repeat the process of forming burgers until all the batter is used.
Bake at 375 F for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges of the burgers are slightly browned.
Remove from the oven. You can serve this solo, lettuce-wrapped, or on a coconut flour biscuit topped with avocado!
