Vegetarian Patties / Cakes

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't updated for so long. We had a huge storm here and it cut out the telephone line and so I was net free for about 3 to 4 days! It was the most stressful days of my life lol. No jokes hahaha.

Anyway, I like to share a simple recipe to you without the meat and fat! I made these "vegetarian patties" on a Friday afternoon. I wanted something healthy, fresh and crunchy and something with flavour and I came up with this without the meat :P. I didn't use exact ingredients. Thought when I tried to form the mixture into patties it kind of crumbled a bit. I found that when I fried them in the pan it holds shape anyway and it was nice and crunchy.

For about 8 small Vegetarian Patties you will need:

  • 1 medium sized potato washed and peeled
  • 2 medium carrots washed and peeled
  • 1 zucchini washed and peeled
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • pinch of cumin and some paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1 to 2 cups of bread crumbs
  • olive oil

  1. Firstly wash all your vegetables and grate them into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Then squeezed out excess liquid from the vegetables. Squeeze as much as possible to prevent it from being too wet and hard to form patty shapes.
  3. Then season with salt, pepper and paprika and cumin. Taste accordingly.
  4. Add the egg and mix through the mixture. This will help stick the veges together and make it easy to form the patties.
  5. In a fry pan add the oil and wait til it heats. Sprinkle bread crumbs over a large plate for coating the patties.
  6. Form the mixture into small shaped round patties and coat generously though the bread crumbs
  7. Lay the patties into the fry pan and fry each side until golden brown
  8. Repeat process until mixture is all used up
  9. You can cut them into quarters and serve them with salad
  10. Enjoy :)
