 These protein-rich mushroom hemp patties with herbs not only taste great but also have the perfect patties texture! Give them a try! 

I started experimenting with hemp food products, such as hemp oil, hemp seeds, hemp protein powder and even hemp flour! I realized that hemp is an incredible product and has so many great benefits. It’s very rich in proteins and good fats and helps with a lot of health issues.

Before I tell you about this wonderful, protein-rich mushroom patties recipe, you should know why hemp is so amazing! Here are some hemp health facts below.

The amazing health benefits of hemp

Hemp is a variety of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is not the same as marijuana, as it does not contain the high levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

  1. The essential fatty acids contained in hemp reduce blood cholesterol and thus prevent plaque buildup in the arteries.
  2. Hemp improves your memory and prevents diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
  3. Hemp oil is often used for cosmetic purposes in products such as soaps, skin lotions and lip balms.  It clears up skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and dry skin.
  4. Hemp is a natural appetite suppressant and helps you to feel full longer. Add 4 tablespoons of hemp seeds to your breakfast and reduce your food cravings for the rest of the day.
  5. Hemp is rich in fibers and thus it keeps your digestive tract clean and healthy.
  6. Hemp reduces your risk of breast, colon, and prostate cancers because of the antioxidants and plant sterols it contains.
  7. Hemp seeds are also essential if you are diabetic, as they control your blood sugar levels.
  8. Hemp seeds are very rich in proteins and are great for vegetarians!

These are just a few of the great health benefits of hemp.

I decided to create a super-protein-rich meal with hemp and what better ingredient to go along with other than mushrooms! We all know mushrooms are very rich in proteins and they also have a meaty texture, so I created these protein-rich mushroom patties for vegetarians! They were not only healthy but really good too! You should try this mushroom patties recipe and see for yourself 🙂

P.S. The rosemary was used just for decor. 🙂 My fresh thyme looked horrible and it was too dry 🙁

  1. OMG! I’m so glad I found this recipe! I’ve been making my own mushroom broth and am left with a bunch of leftover mushroom solids afterwords. I’ve worked them into recipes, but I love using them for these mushroom patties! I want to play with sausage seasonings to have a breakfast style patty! I might even be able to get my mushroom hating husband to try it!

  2. This recipe looks amazing! Just what I’ve been looking for…just one question…can I use hemp hearts – raw shelled hemp seeds – in place of the hemp seeds and hemp protein powder in your recipe?

    1. Shelled hemp seeds may be too hard for this recipe, maybe if you turn them into a flour? Blend them then add them to the recipe. It should work.

  3. Hi, this looks like a great recipe, however, can anything else be substituted for the nutritional yeast? Or can it be left out?

  4. I’m excited to find this recipe.
    I’m confused on the oil and the last statement that says 1 TB per patty. Is that how much mixture to measure out per patty? Where does the 4 TB of oil factor in?

    1. Hi, Holly! 1TB per patty means one tablespoon of the composition per patty. The 4Tbsps of oil are placed in the pan, for frying, not added to the composition.

  5. Hi! Can I substitute an egg or flax meal with mashed potato maybe? Do you think this would work? And do I need to use nutritional yeast if I don’t have it? Do I need to substitute it with some other things?

    1. I never tried this recipe with mashed potato but I did try other veggie patties and it worked just as well. I am not 100% sure it will work, but you can give it a try. 🙂 You can skip using nutritional yeast.
