Ingredients for the patties:

  1. Pulp left from making milk from any nuts. In the photo the nut pulp is of hazelnuts and apricot seeds – 1/2 cup
  2. Parsely finely chopped – 1/4 cup
  3. Finely minced garlic – 3 large cloves
  4. Salt to taste
  5. 2 tsp of oil
  6. 1/2 cup wheat flour
  7. Water as per need

Process: Mix all ingredients well with water and make a dough. The dough will not feel like it sticks together and that is ok because we are not going to roll it rather pat in the palms to make the patties. Let the dough sit for 15-30 minutes. Divide into equal parts and make patties using the palms. Cook them on a large flat pan all together with a lid on the patties. The lid is important to keep the patties soft and moist. Turn over and cook until done with lid on.

Ingredients for the topping:

  1. 3 medium size carrots
  2. 1/2 cup loose parsley
  3. 1/8 cup raisins
  4. 1/4 cup pine nuts
  5. 1/2 lime’s juice

Yucca Patties

IMG_3356

Ingredients:

1. Fresh yucca (When you buy it, peel it, cut into pieces, store in a bowl full of water in the refrigerator). Before using always take out the central hard fibrous core.
2. Onions
3. Cilantro
4. Roasted and crushed peanuts
5. Grated ginger
6. Salt to taste
7. Turmeric

Procedure:
1. Grind yucca in a food processor or blender WITHOUT adding water to a paste.
2. Mix chopped onions, peanuts, chopped cilantro, ginger, turmeric and salt.
3. Grease the pan with coconut oil, keep on medium to low heat, make yucca patties and cook covered. I usually put a bowl with some water so to have vapor cooking as well and so as not to end up with dry patties(sometimes the yucca is dry, if not bought freshly harvested).

Serve with tomatillo-tomato chutney.

Such kind of patties can be made with any grain or flour too like amaranth, quinoa, rice flour or just with potatoes.
