April 22, 2014


Here is my low-environmental-impact and zero-food-waste recipe for the Earth Day!

The basic ingredient in this recipe are vegetables, where the result is doubled using as the juice as the fiber. First, we centrifuge carrots , celery, raw beetroot , ginger and other in season vegetables. The scrap of the centrifuge is used as basis to prepare a hamburger with a color that is very reminiscent of the minced meat, but instead is 100% vegetable and low environmental impact. Finally you can taste it all together: on the one hand a tasty vegetable hamburger that has nothing to do with the junk food , on the other a vitamin and refreshing juice. Here are all the details of the preparation, recipe for 6.



250g peeled fava beans boiled or alternatively cooked chickpeas

2 tablespoons of chickpea flour

250g scrap centrifuged of mixed in season vegetables (eg. carrots 2 , the leaves of a celery , 2 red beets, the green part of the onion , 1 small piece of ginger … )

2 fresh spring onions

½ lemon

A few leaves of salad (optional)

6 hamburger breads

Add the scrap of the vegetable centrifuged, 2 tablespoons of chickpea flour, salt and pepper. Stir to blend the mixture . Store in the refrigerator and let stand for 30 minutes. Using a shaped pasta prepare the burgers directly on a baking sheet . Brush them with olive oil and bake at 180 degrees for 25 minutes ventilated mode. After 15 minutes , turn the burgers and brush oil on the other side .

    I am going to have to try this. I am so intrigued. We have a Champion juicer and I am always wondering what I could do with all the vegetables rather than compost them. Lovely post.
