  • a large bunch of broccoli 2.5 + cups florets or 2 heaping cups shredded
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked or regular paprika
  • 1 tsp chipotle pepper powder
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 tbsp bbq sauce
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour


  • Process the broccoli florets, onion and cilantro in a processor.
  • Transfer to a bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Mix well to distribute. Let sit for a minute or 2 for the broccoli to leak enough moisture so you can form patties. If it is too wet, add more flour. If too dry and does not stick well, wait for another few mins or sprinkle some water and mix and press to see if the mixture sticks.
  • Shape into 5 to 6 patties. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add a bit of oil and spread.
  • Pan fry the patties for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve with sriracha, ketchup, bbq sauce, marinara or a cooling ranch.



Use a combination of veggies for variation like broccoli, Cauliflower, carrots, Cucchini, sweet potatoes, squash etc.
Make them into smaller bite size pieces for appetizers. Make ahead, reheat in the oven and serve.
