Low Calorie Veggie Cakes/Patties

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Lolliie

Suitable for vegetarians/vegans. It's still fried, but no way near deep-fried or using a lot of oil - i think this is one of the healthiest way to cook it, and to me it still tastes good. Not too sure about the cooking time though.

This is a good, basic recipe that could be customised to suit the chef's taste by adding herbs and/or spices. As is, it didn't have a lot of flavour for me, but then I like spicy food and, because the recipes contains soy sauce, I left out the salt.<br/><br/>Changes I made were to add one cup of dry breadcrumbs and an egg. This gave me fourteen patties, which I dipped in dry breadcrumbs before frying. They held together well during cooking, and I found them quite filling. <br/><br/>I would probably leave out the garlic next time and maybe lightly fry the onions before adding them to the mixture. I think the patties would be great with the addition of salmon or tuna - obviously they wouldn't be vegetarian then - plus some lemon and spices. <br/><br/>I've been looking for this type of recipe for a while, so will definitely try it again with some spices added. Thanks, Lolliie.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mash the potatoes and mix it with the vegetable ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Gradually add all the seasoning and continue to mix until it seems evenly all over.
  3. Shape the ingredients into 12 individual balls, then flatten them out to approximately 1-2 cm thick patties.
  4. Heat a small amount (1 tablespoon) vegetable or canola oil in a non-stick pan and make sure it's approximately evenly covered.
  5. Fry 2-3 patties at a time (more or less depending on your pan size) for about 2-3 minutes (both sides) and keep frying/flipping them util both sides are brown-black in colour. Add more oil if needed (NOTE: The patties might be hard to flip or stick to the pans since only small amounts of oil is used to make it healthier, so becareful).
  6. Serve as is or with your favourite sauce, dip etc, or use them to fill your sandwiches. Enjoy!
