This vegan Pulp Fiction Burger by Tom Hunt is made from leftover juice pulp – plant fibre that’s a vital macronutrient and a huge waste if left unused.

  • mixing bowl
  • Frying pan


  • 100 g juice pulp (about 2 small juices worth, preferably containing beetroot or finely chopped cooked mushrooms)
  • 100 g organic tempeh shredded, or finely chopped cooked mushrooms
  • 1 tsp vinegar (apple cider or other)
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 large red onion grated
  • 1 garlic clove grated
  • 1 Tbsp chickpea or brown rice miso
  • 1 tsp buckwheat or vital wheat gluten flour
  • 50 g walnuts (finely chopped)
  • oil for frying


  • bun
  • lettuce leaf
  • tomatoes
  • onion
  • pickles
  • ketchup
  • aquafaba mayonnaise


  • Preheat the oven to 220.C/425.F/Gas Mark 7.
  • Combine all of the ingredients for the burgers in a mixing bowl and season with pepper. Do not add salt as the miso is salty.
  • Form into two firm round patties and arrange on two circles of unbleached parchment paper. If you have time, refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (or overnight if you can make them the day before).
  • Heat an ovenproof frying pan over a medium-low heat with a splash of oil. Arrange the patties, still on their parchment paper, in the pan and cook for approx. 5 minutes or until the bases start to brown. Avoid the temptation to move the burgers until the undersides form a crust, when you can carefully flip them over with a fish slice. Transfer the pan to the oven for 5–10 minutes while you prepare the trimmings.
  • Serve how you like, in a bun and/or lettuce leaf, accompanied by the pickles and your favourite sauces.
