Vegetarian and delicious: here is the black cabbage burger

Black cabbage burger

If you are looking for an amazing and vegetarian second course, the black cabbage burger is the right recipe for you. Here’s how it is prepared!

Black cabbage is a little known and little used vegetable. We hear about it especially for the recipe of the Tuscan ribollita where, together with the beans, it gives rise to a sensational first course. But what about making black cabbage burgers? By now, veggie burgers have been abundantly cleared of customs and no longer represent a culinary taboo.

If you add to this the fact that you will be able to eat (and feed) a little more vegetables, there is no excuse. We have prepared very few ingredients: white bread soaked in milk, eggs and Parmesan cheese to taste. In short, there are really no excuses. The choice is yours whether to serve it alone on the plate, with a side dish of your choice, or in a sandwich. Ready to cook?

This is certainly not the only recipe with black cabbage that you can prepare. We mentioned the ribollita, but what about the black cabbage pesto? It is perfect for seasoning pasta!


You can keep the burgers in the refrigerator for 2 days in an airtight container. Alternatively, once cooked, they can be stored in the freezer . They will keep in this way for up to 3 months and when needed, without defrosting them, it will be sufficient to pass them back in the oven or in a pan.
