Save on Healthy Ingredients

I made this recipe for, my favorite place to shop for healthy non-perishable ingredients at a fraction of the price of what I’d pay at the grocery store. Plus, I don’t have to physically go to the grocery store, or schlep the bags home – it’s a win-win. ☺

Broccoli Burgers

Turmeric Tahini Sauce



  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
  • Heat frying pan over medium heat. Add olive oil, then onion and jalapeno. Cook 5-6 minutes, or until onions start to become translucent. Add garlic and cook additional 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool 5 minutes or so.
  • In blender, combine broccoli rice, peas, flax, chia, parsley, almond flour and salt. Then add onion-garlic mixture. Blend until fully combined into a thick paste. You can leave a little chunkiness for added texture.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Use spoon to scoop out about 3 tablespoons broccoli mix. Use hands to roll into ball, then flatten with palms to make burger shape. Place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining broccoli batter.
  • Bake 30 minutes, flip, then bake additional 15 minutes.
  • While they’re cooking, make the turmeric tahini. In small bowl, combine ingredients and mix vigorously with fork until fully combined, and has an even, pourable consistency. If too thick, stir in one additional tablespoon water at a time until desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve patties as a side dish, over a roasted veggie bowl or simply build a massive burger on a bun by layering the broccoli patty with lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado and turmeric tahini.

Recipe Notes

*To rice broccoli, chop broccoli into small pieces, stem included, and throw into a blender or food processor. Pulse briefly to process into small, rice-like pieces. Rice broccoli first, and then add it to the remaining ingredients.
