These veggie-packed patties are bound with mashed cannellini beans for a texture that’s creamy and hearty. Think of the recipe as a template and adapt it to what you have on hand. No beans? Try chickpeas. In place of broccoli, try cauliflower. And use whatever cheese you have in your fridge.



3 cup(s), chopped, (285g)

Canned cannellini beans, rinsed, drained

1 400g can

Garlic powder or flakes

½ tsp, (powder)


1 medium, lightly beaten

Grated parmesan cheese

¼ cup(s), (20g)


1 medium, wedges to serve

Oil spray

1 x 3 second spray(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place broccoli in a microwave–safe bowl, cover and microwave on High (100%) for 3 minutes or until tender. Uncover and drain, being careful to avoid hot steam.
  3. Mash beans with a fork in a large bowl until almost smooth. Stir in garlic powder and egg. Add broccoli and mash lightly with a fork to combine. Stir in parmesan and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide mixture into 8 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 1.5 cm thick patty. Place patties on prepared tray and lightly spray with oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with lemon wedges.


TO REFRIGERATE: Store patties in a reusable container for up to 3 days. Enjoy cold or reheat in microwave to serve.
