Not only is this six-ingredient veggie burger fulfilling, packed with fiber, and bursting with good-for-you nutrients, it is made with leftover juice pulp from your morning green juice! That’s right; this is how you can recycle your juice pulp.
When I make cucumber, carrot, celery and kale juice, I save the pulp and use it in recipes like soups and bulky recipes like these. Not only are you cleansing your cells in the morning with your green juice, you are eating the fiber and consuming the rest of the vitamins that are in the pulp.

I enjoy my veggie burgers with no bun, but if you want a healthier alternative to a real burger style, take a romaine lettuce leaf and make a lettuce burger.
1 can pinto beans
1 cup nutritional yeast
1 cup juice pulp
1 teaspoon garlic powder
You will also need a little coconut oil or olive oil for cooking.
1. In a mixing bowl, mash the beans and mix in the nutritional yeast, garlic powder and juice pulp.
2. In a skillet, heat the coconut oil until the oil has melted.
3. Make four patties and cook two at a time, about five minutes on one side, then flip and cook another five minutes.
4. Top with shredded lettuce and avocado slices and enjoy!
I like using condiments like mustard or BBQ sauce to dip my veggie burger in, but you can experiment with various sauces that you like to pair with your veggie burgers. I sprinkled a bit of vegan cheese on mine, but if you don’t want to eat processed cheese alternatives, you can go without, or you can use mozzarella cheese if you want the real deal. You will also get a great amount of fiber from the beans, B vitamins and amino acids from the nutritional yeast, and a blend of vitamins and minerals from the leftover juice pulp. Not only will your tummy be full, you will also be boosting your health. Happy cooking!
