Notes

  • You can use both white cabbage or cabbage, and beaked cabbage, which will give it an even sweeter flavor.
  • You can substitute aquafaba for a mixture of flax seeds and hot water. The ratio would be 1 tablespoon of whole flaxseeds + 50 ml. of hot water (leaving to rest for 10 minutes), for each tablespoon of aquafaba.
  • If you prefer, you can also make these burgers in the oven, baking them for 20 minutes at 200º, ensuring that they do not burn.
