Let’s check out the said recipe that yields around 10 vegetarian coconut meat burger patties:
3 cups of shredded coconut meat
1/2 cup of silken tofu
1 medium-sized white onion (chopped)
1 small-sized red bell pepper (minced)
6 cloves of garlic (minced)
5 tablespoons of panko bread crumbs
4 tablespoons of soy sauce
2 tablespoons of coriander leaves (minced)
2 tablespoons of onion spring (chopped)
5 teaspoons of cornstarch
1 teaspoon of oregano powder
Sea salt (ground)
Black pepper (ground)
-It’s important to remove as much coconut milk from shredded coconut milk to keep the resulting vegetarian burger patties from tasting a lot like coconut milk. To do this, place shredded coconut milk in a large mixing bowl and add water. Using your hands, squeeze coconut milk out of shredded coconut meat. Drain carefully. Add water again and repeat the procedure. Do everything for a third time.
-Set up your steamer and get some water steaming. Steam shredded coconut meat for about 15 minutes. Afterwards, carefully transfer shredded coconut meat to a large tray and allow it to cool completely.
-Once cool, grab a large mixing bowl. Combine shredded coconut meat, silken tofu, white onion, garlic, red bell pepper, coriander leaves, onion spring, oregano powder, panko bread crumbs and soy sauce. Add a little sea salt and ground black pepper, too. Using a large wooden spoon, mix all of the ingredients very well.
-While still mixing shredded coconut meat mixture, sprinkle cornstarch little by little into it. Keep doing this until you come up with a really thick and sticky mixture.
-Get a large tray and line it with wax paper. Scoop 4 to 5 tablespoons of the shredded coconut meat mixture and form into a ball using your hands. Place on the tray lined with wax paper and flatten. Repeat the steps until you have turned the entire shredded coconut meat mixture into burger patties.
-Stash the tray in the refrigerator and allow the vegetarian burger patties to chill for 15 to 20 minutes.
-In a frying pan, heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of olive oil over low heat. Start frying vegetarian burger patties. Cook each side for about 3 minutes or until already golden brown.
