Fava Queen

Fava Queen

This is the real reason why the fava salad even exists... the queen of all veggie burgers has been born. Gluten Free and Vegetarian - you won't beat it. Not at any restaurant... not from any frozen super patty... Nothing compares... Meet the Fava Queen, the veggie burger of your dreams. 



  • 2 cups of cooked Fava Beans (refer above)
  • 2 farm fresh eggs
  • 1 jalepeno 
  • Kale or Arugula for salad
  • 1 avocado 
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 Plantain
  • 1 can of olives
  • Olive Oil or Coconut Oil or Grape Seed Oil
  • Dijon Mustard - the good stuff
  • Coconut Flour 
  • Italian Dressing 
  • Himalayan Pink Salt
  • Pepper



  1. Take the remaining half of the beans from the Fava Salad recipe that you set aside (or refer to the recipe above to make the beans), and pulse/blend in a food processor with 2 farm fresh eggs. 
  2. Once the beans are well blended together, place in a large bowl and mix in half of a cup of coconut flour (optional to add half a cup of shredded parmesan cheese). The beans should be nicely seasoned with garlic and sea salt from before, but if you'd like to add more, feel free to do so. 
  3. Prepare burger toppings: Slice 1 tomato, slice up some avocado, slice up one large jalapeno, slice up some black olives, have your greens ready! Kale, arugula, sprouts - whatever you've got. 
  4. Peel open a yellow, ripe, medium sized plantain, and cut into 6-8 chunks. 
  5. Bring a small pan of 1/3 cup of olive or grape seed oil to a medium high heat - place chunks of plantain in. Wait for them to be golden brown, then turn them with tongs. Once golden brown, remove from oil, and bring oil down to low heat. 
  6. Then you are going to smash each plantain flat with a plate, just like so: 

7. Once all plantains are smashed, turn the oil up to medium high once again, and place in oil for about 1 minute on each side. 

8. Set plantains on a plate of paper towel to soak up any excess oil, lightly salt with sea salt. Place in the oven on warm on a small plate (170 degrees F, give or take). 

8. Form the bean/egg/coconut flour mixture into 5-6 patties. 

10. Bring a large pan with the bottom covered in oil of choice (for this recipe, I did use olive oil, but often use coconut oil), to a medium high heat. Place 2 - 3 patties in at a time, flip when each side is golden brown - about five minutes on each side depending on how hot your stove gets. 

11. Once burgers are done, sautee the sliced jalapenos for a minute or 2 - set aside. 

12. Prepare a salad of greens, olives, chopped avocado, perhaps left over fava salad, and italian dressing on a plate. 

13. Place the Fava Queen on top of the salad. Spread a thin layer of mustard, then top with olives, jalepenos, sliced plantain, a piece of kale, and a sliced tomato. Optional: sprinkle shredded parmesan, salt and pepper on top. 

Like I said.... She's a queen.
