These broccoli burgers are one of my absolute favourite meals to make for dinner . They are quick and easy to make, filling, delicious and packed full of goodness for your body. These burgers are the second Banting recipe I've posted here on the blog (click here to read more about the Banting diet & lifestyle plan) and as with all Banting recipes are Low Carb High Fat.

Some people wouldn't go so far as to call them burgers, as technically there's no bun or toppings, but trust me when I say you won't need to have anything to accompany these (except for your favourite sauce). Both Farmboy and I are completely stuffed every time I make them and there are always a few left over for lunch the next day.
If you do try these let me know what you think of them in the comments below!
2 heads of broccoli (pulsed until fine in a blender or food processor)
1 pack of bacon
2 or 3 cloves of garlic (depending on how much you like garlic)
ginger (optional...I used a small thumb sized amount)
tablespoon coconut oil (optional, depending on whether you like to cook in bacon fat or not)
1/2 cup almond/coconut flour (we have tried both and they work equally as well, the almond flour makes the patties a little more dense)
salt & pepper
1/3 cup grated cheese
makes 12 patties
Heat your oven to 180C. Fry your bacon. Then finely chop the onions and garlic and fry them in your bacon fat (or coconut oil) until brown. Leave to cool.
In a large bowl combine the rest of the dry ingredients (broccoli, almond/coconut flour, cheese, salt and pepper). Add the garlic and onion mixture and finally add the eggs.
Oil a baking tray (with coconut oil) and spoon balls of the mixture onto the tray. I used foil in the pictures below but it was an absolute nightmare removing the foil from the burgers. Bake in the oven for 15-25 minutes, keep checking on them to make sure they don't burn.
Remove when they are slightly golden on top.
Serve with your choice of sauce (or even salad) and enjoy!
