These veggie patties have only 168 calories each one. They are gluten-free and so delicious. The sauce has only 45 calories per tablespoon and it’s amazing!


  • 3 medium potatoes (16 ounces or 450 grams)
  • 1/2 cup peas (70 grams)
  • 1 red onion
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch (95 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 chili pepper or a pinch of cayenne powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the sauce:

  • 1 package of firm tofu (10 ounces/275 grams drained or 14 ounces/400 grams undrained)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Cook the potatoes. You can steam them or cook them in plenty of boiling water for about 20 minutes or until they are soft. Drain them and set aside.
  2. Boil the peas for about 8 minutes (we’ve used frozen peas). Drain them and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the sesame seeds and the chili pepper (sliced) for 1 or 2 minutes. Add the red onion (chopped) and cook for 2 minutes. Add the peas and cook until veggies golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. When all the ingredients are cool, place the potatoes in a big bowl and mash them, add the ginger, coriander, cumin, cornstarch, lemon juice, onion and peas. Mix all the ingredients using your hands or a spoon. Form burger patties with your hands. We recommend don’t make them too thick, just about the thickness of your thumb. Coat burgers in cornstarch (this step is optional).
  5. Grease the frying pan with a little bit oil and cook the patties over medium heat. Cook each side for about 5 min, or until they are nicely browned.
  6. To make the sauce you only have to place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  7. Serve on bread with lettuce, tomato and one or two tablespoons of sauce.
