Carrot Sunflower Seed Patties

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Trilby

This is a recipe where the whole is much greater than the parts. These patties are yummy and do not taste like either sunflower seeds or carrots but like something else entirely. Very healthful and easy to make.

I decided to give this recipe a try since my DH was out of town and didn't want to go to a lot of fuss making a big meal. These were fun to make an turned out tasty. I halved the recipe and used roasted, salted sunflower seed. They cooked up really nice and held their shape. I made them a meal by topping them with a blop of cottage cheese and a few shakes of Frank's hot sauce. Thanks for sharing this unique recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 large carrots, shredded
  • 1 cup unsalted sunflower seed kernels
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Grind the raw hulled sunflower seeds in a food processor to get a fluffy product. Do NOT grind them into a paste.
  2. Shred the carrots.
  3. Mix the egg into the shredded carrots, then add the sunflower meal and blend. Season with salt and pepper if you wish.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls of carrot-sunflower mixture onto pan, flatten with your spoon if necessary, and cook till you see browning around the edges. The patties should hold together. Turn and cook on the other side. Enjoy!
