Last week, I made some broccoli patties. They were so good! I made several to keep in the fridge--excellent to grab for lunch. Today, I used different veggies to make a different version.
I had half a medium head of sweetheart cabbage (the pointy kind, but any cabbage would work fine). I cut it up into pieces and whizzed it in my mini food processor.
Beat three large eggs and mix in. Then add about 3/4 cup flour or bread crumbs. I used oat flour (just whiz up some rolled oats in a food processor to make oat flour), but after I'd gotten everything mixed, it dawned on me that rye flower and caraway seeds would have probably been great too. with these veggies.
I lined a couple pans with parchment paper and spooned the mixture onto the pans, smoothing with the spoon.
I baked these at 200C (about 390F) in a fan oven for about half an hour, until the patties were golden brown.
I love these! They're handy to have in the fridge and would probably freeze well, although I have not tried this. There are a lot of possibilities with these--by changing veggies, herbs, and spices, the resulting patties will vary in taste. These are easily adaptable and great for using up odds and ends, thus avoiding food waste. I made 10 patties today and I think 12 the other day--I made them thicker today. But I could have used fewer veg and then cut down on the cheese, flour, and egg as well.
When I made the broccoli patties, I used the florets from a 500g head of broccoli and whizzed them up in the food processor. I used half a large onion. All the rest was the same, except I used all cheddar cheese. I also added a tablespoon of olive oil, because the florets were more dry than the veggies I used today. I used a wee bit more flour today than I did for the broccoli patties because the mixture was wetter. I could have squeezed out the moisture from the shredded veg, but that would have been unnecessary bother, so I just compensated for this and it was fine.
They're good hot or cold, on their own or in a wrap. I suspect we'll be having many more of these in one form or another in the weeks ahead. 😋
