Carrot, pepper and zucchini patties with soya

This is a recipe for very quick and tasty vegetable patties made of basic ingredients. I added some soya to these as well for the extra healthy touch and these patties are almost vegan. I used eggs to bind the mixture, but feel free to substitute it.


1 small zucchini

3 carrots

1 red pepper

1 onion

1dl soya crunch

Fresh parsley

Fresh chives

2 eggs

1dl wheat flour

1tsp nettle salt

Ground black pepper

Vegetable oil for frying


This is how to make the patties: grate the carrots, pepper and zucchini and chop the onion small. Boil the soya crunch in water for 5 minutes and remove its excess water by pressing it through a sieve. Mix all these ingredients in a bowl and add the eggs and the flour. Add enough flour to make the mixture fairly firm but you might need more than one desiliter flour or not quite that much depending on the juiciness of the vegetables.

Season the mix with salt and pepper. I now have this nettle salt that I like to use all the time, so I added it here as well, but don't worry if you can't get such a thing. Season the mix also generously with some fresh parsley and chives.

Heat some vegetable oil in a pan to a moderate temperature. Put enough oil to the pan to enable shallow frying. Shape fairly small and thin patties of the mix directly to the pan and fry each side for a few minutes until the patties are firm and fried golden brown.

Place them on a piece of kitchen roll to tap off the excess oil.

These are best to be served as a side with potatoes, salad and maybe some light gravy.
