Bean Patties

Serves 4 | Prep Time 35 minutes | Total Time 45 minutes


  • 1 package Original Chakalaka, prepared
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 handful freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Prepare your chakalaka as per the package directions. Allow to cool slightly
  2. Add the prepared package contents into a bowl. Mix with the oat flour, eggs, garlic, nutritional yeast, and parsley. Combine until you have a thick pasty consistency.
  3. Form into 4 patties and place on a plate. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours so that the patties better hold their shape.
  4. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat your olive oil over medium heat. Sear your patties on each side for 3-4 minutes until a nice, browned crust forms. Flip and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes.
  5. Serve over a bed of lettuce or on top of your favorite bun with condiments.
