Shredded Vegetable Patties

These patties are exceptionally tasty and not really hard to make. They consist mostly of shredded root vegetables and falafel.

  • ¼ Rutabaga

  • 1 medium Carrot

  • ½ Golden Beet

  • 1 Zucchini

  • ¼ sweet bell pepper

  • ½ cup parsley

  • 1 cup falafel mix

  • 2 eggs

Mix the falafel with water and set aside

Peel the rutabaga, carrot, and beet

Shred the rutabaga, carrot, beet, and zucchini and place the shreds in a dish

Cut the bell pepper into slivers and add to the shredded veggies

Chop the parsley into fine pieces

Mix the parsley into the veggies

Mix the falafel into the veggies until it is well distributed (no chunks)

Whisk up the eggs and then pour it into the veggies and mix in thoroughly

Lightly grease a fry pan and turn to medium heat

Form patties from the veggie mix. They will form pretty easily and you can flatten them a bit once they are in the fry pan.

Cook until browned on one side and then flip over to cook the other side until it is brown.

They won’t take that long to cook and the veggies will retain a slight bit of crunchiness but won’t be raw. Top with whatever you like to top things with. I use a mixture of Vegenaise with some harissa and lots of garlic.

This is the tool I use to shred the veggies. It was a gift from friends who bought it in Vietnam. I'm pretty sure its primary purpose there is to shred papaya. It's one of my favorite kitchen tools.
