7 Ingredient Green Monster Veggie Burger is a delicious meal with immense nutrition and also it is super easy to make.
I made it with and without gluten free options and both tasted outstanding. I have already made it twice on my family’s demand. Even meat lovers would appreciate this recipe to utmost.
This burger suffices the requirement to eat green veggies. It’s a make ahead recipe. Just store the patties in the refrigerator for a week in an air tight container. The leftover tastes even better because as the days pass by the flavors blend deeper and deeper.
How to make 7 ingredient green monster veggie burger
For this I used fresh broccoli florets and frozen peas which I roughly crushed in the food processor.
Thereafter, I added some chopped spinach and folded in chickpea flour to add some protein to the burger patties.
Afterwards seasoned it with few simple spices and shaped them into flat thick patties.
Lastly, I cooked the patties on the nonstick pan.
The only trick to this recipe is to make the patties and cook them as soon as you mix all the ingredients. Otherwise the green vegetables would start releasing its water making it difficult for you to form patties out of it.
Since Father’s day is almost there this 7 Ingredient Green Monster Veggie Burger would serve best for lunch/dinner menu. Pair it with some fries or a side salad and dollops of ketchup. Dads are going to definitely love this recipe and would want it again and again.

I’ll be making these this week—thank you for the delish recipe! One question: Can I use blanched/lightly cooked peas and spinach as well as broccoli? (I may be using frozen versions of all these veggies.) TY!
Thank you Danielle. You can certainly use frozen version of the veggies but make sure to bring them to the room temperature and dap it with lots of tissue paper so as to avoid extra moisture. Spinach releases lot of water while cooking so I would highly recommend using raw baby spinach instead of the cooked ones. But frozen will work too if you dab and squeeze it between kitchen tissue papers. Blanched and drained broccoli works here. Frozen green peas works well here and lightly cooked ones also work here. Just spinach needs to be taken care of or else it would be difficult to bind the patties firmly. Hope this helps.
Ah, makes sense. Thank you so much for this helpful reply, Gunjan! Can’t wait to whip these up! 🙂
Can I sub chickpea flour for almond or oat flour?
Oat flour should work very well in this recipe. Just make sure to cook the patties well.
