Veggie Patties

The first time I tried to make veggie patties it resulted in a disaster (except for the flavor). What happened was that the texture was not firm and too moist for them cook correctly. But practice makes perfection! So, I am sharing with you my successful attempt on making veggie patties.

Veggie patties for me can be so fun, variable and of course nutritious. They can have any kind of veggies, sticky agents and rising agents. Veggie patties usually are made of vegetables, nuts or seeds, flour and oil. This veggie patties are made of mainly carrots and then mushrooms, oat flour and seeds. I also added spices such as ginger for them to be flavorful.

You can shape the veggie patties in any form you would like. You shape them into meatballs, ovals or even squares (xD, be creative) Veggie patties can be eaten with rices, pastas, in a salad, in a wrap or as a burger.
