Veggie Patty


Have you ever tried store bought veggie patties before? For me, what a disappointment. It was overly salty, mushy with no texture whatsoever. I think it’s always a good idea making a big batch of your own veggie patties and freeze them in individual bags. Because when you are in hurry, unfortunately you tend to grab a bag of processed looking-healthy-but-not-so-healthy foods.

This veggie patty is a mixture of grains, nuts and veggies. Yes, it’s a perfect wholefood full of flavour and texture. Soy sauce and mushroom for unami and earthy flavour, tahini and chickpeas for creaminess and nuttiness, herbs and spices for extra-nutritional boost. Oh, another plus side is that it’s an affordable budget meal. Yay! You can serve this as main (like what I did in the photo, served with green salad and a little dollop of Korean chili sauce called Gochugang) or in a bun or wrap.

Ingredients (makes 4 patties)

1 cup of cooked chickpeas
1 medium sized cooked potato
2 tbsp of rice flour (more if the mixture is too wet)
1/4 brown onion, finely chopped
½ carrot, grated
1 crushed garlic
Handful of chopped parsley
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp of tahini
½ tsp of cumin seeds
½ tsp of smoked paprika
A pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Coconut oil for cooking

Coat a frying pan with a drizzle of coconut oil and cook chopped onion and mushroom, grated carrot and crushed garlic for 3-5 minutes until cooked. Add this mixture with the rest of ingredients into a food processor and pulse until well combined (but not overdone). Add a bit more rice flour if the mixture is too wet. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Make little patties with clean hands. You can cook in a pan for 3-5 minutes each side until golden or freeze the patties in individual sandwich bags.
