Carrot and Courgette Patties

Carrot and Courgette Patties

This recipe is another one I discovered from the ‘Honestly Healthy for Life’ recipe book, by Natasha Corrett and Vicki Edgson.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4 large carrots
  • 1 large courgette
  • 4 spring onions
  • 100 g halloumi
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 20g red onion
  • 40g rice flour
  • 1 egg white

*you can add coriander and lemon zest and juice to this recipe if you’d like, however after trying and testing I feel there is enough flavour without this.

Instructions:

Step 1:

  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan, that you will add to the mixture you will create

Step 2:

  • Grate the carrots, courgette, onion, and halloumi
  • Crush the garlic clove
  • Chop the spring onions (keep them thin)

Step 3:

  • Mix all of the above together
  • Then add the rice flour, oil and egg white

Step 4:

  • Pre heat the oven to 170 degrees celsius

Step 5:

  • Take a handful of the mixture, squeeze out the juice and make a small patty shape
  • Make four of these at once and then heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan
  • Place the four patties into the frying pan and lightly fry them on both sides (this is to ensure that they will stay together before going in the oven)

* you will have to do this 3 or 4 times as the mixture will make 10-12 patties (size dependent)

Step 6:

  • Once all have been fried you can put them in the oven to cook for 15 minutes

Step 7:

  • Remove from the oven and serve

Serving suggestions:
– I have served mine on a bed of spinach sprinkled with quinoa
– Any leafy green of your choice will work with this: rocket, lettuce, spinach etc.
-If you wish to make a dressing Natasha and Vicki recommend mixing the below to spread over a bed of rocket or other leaves of your choice:
4 tbsp olive oil
Juice of 2 limes
1 tbsp agave syrup
