Veggie Patties

I haven't tried this one yet, but I hope to soon! This sounds like a good way to sneak veggies onto someone's plate, whether it be a picky toddler, veggie-despising spouse, or yourself!

And check out out other Saturday Stirrings participants at It Coulda' Been Worse.

Can be served as a side or a main dish. Make a large batch and freeze for future meals.

2 tablespoon olive oil
1 potato, grated
1 medium carrot, grated
1 sweet potato, grated
1 zucchini, grated
1/4 cup broccoli, finely chopped
2 tablespoons flour (can use wheat)
Salt & pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)

Grate the potato, carrot, sweet potato and zucchini.

Place in a bowl with broccoli and mix well.

Squeeze out as much liquid as possible by taking a handful of the veggie mix and squeezing it over sink.

Add flour, salt & pepper and garlic powder to the squeezed vegetables. Mix well.

Set pan on medium heat and add olive oil.

With hands, make patties about the 2 to 3 inches in diameter and add to pan.

Cook for about 5-7 minutes on each side until patties are crisp and golden brown.
Serve warm.
