Veggie Patties


Not feeling like to have a "proper" lunch today, I just made several veggie patties to go with some raw vegies and bun. Unlike meat patties, vegie patties are more difficult to handle. It is so soft that I need to handle it with extra care. Otherwise, it will be out of shape. May be for the next trial, I should add some bread crumbs to firm up the dough.

For my first attempt, here's the outcome. The patty has a thin layer of crunch outside, and it tastes like a flavorful mashed potato inside. Overall, it resembles a hash brown - my hubby's all time favorite! For the left over patties, I stored it in the freezer. I'll just heat it up in the oven for our next meal. :)


Veggie Patties

500gm potato, peeled and cubed
1 carrot, peeled and diced
2 onion, peeled and coarsely chopped

This looks delicious. And looks like a good child-friendly dish too! I was just telling LK of food-4tots that her post on Parantha reminded me of a corn fritter recipe I like... This does too!

I agree it is not easy to bind all the veggies together in a pattie.

My friend and I tried making veggie dumpling (wontons) before and all the veggies are hard to bind :(

noobcook, make a burger with veggie patty, some raw vegetables and a bun, then it's a hearty meal already.

Great to go for a veggie lunch! Your patties look so crispy and delicious! Btw, if u want to firm up the patties, try to add some cornflour during mixing. Shape them and keep in the fridge for 1-2 hours. Hope it helps. ;)

Food For Tots, yes it helps. Thanks for the tips. I will try this soon.
