Ingredients: makes about 12 patties depending on the size

  • Mixed organic vegetables – 4 carrots, 2 potatoes or kumara, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 small onion, fresh herbs. We use seasonal vegetbales
  • 2 tbsp flour of your choice – gluten free or normal
  • 2 organic eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp curry powder

  • coconut oil for cooking


Process all the veggies in a food processor or grate it with a hand grater. Take them out in a bowl, add eggs and mix well, Add flour, ground seeds, salt and spices. Mix until all is well combined. It should be a thick mix and not runny. If it is runny add more flour, if its dry add some water. Let it sit for a 5 to 10 minutes. Heat some coconut oil in a pan. With a spoon, scoop the mix and place it in the pan, pat it down to make a patty. Make a few patties at a time. Cover and let it cook on low heat. Flip over when they are golden brown and bake the side with lid closed. Once both sides are done, take them out on a serving dish layered with some paper towels to soap up excess oil and moisture. Serve with mayonnaise, mustard sauce or any side dish. Enjoy warm!
