I cut & pasted this from my recipe submission on VegPeople. And I was also asked to submit it to our CSAs newsletter recently. Popular!
My oldest used to call these "cookies" before he'd had a real cookie. I personally like to dip them in ketchup or mustard.
This is adapted from a Veggie Pate recipe in the cookbook: Cooking For Life, by Cheri Calborn & Vicki Rae Chelf. Instead of juicing some of the vegetables, I like to just throw everything in a large food processor and pulverize!
Feel free to substitute more or less kale for the spinach (which is why I call them "kale" sunflower patties, because that's what I usually do...I often use only kale
: ) or collards, swiss chard, etc.
Also, I've made these without any flour before and they've turned out fine, so if you're on a gluten-free diet it will not be missed, or add rice flour instead. If you like, you can also bread these with some breadcrumbs (but I usually don't).
You can also substitute half the sunflower seeds with nuts like walnuts, almonds, etc.Kale-Sunflower Patties
1 pound potatoes (~3 small)
4 medium carrots
1/4 pound spinach (~1 bunch)
3 large kale leaves
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (optional)
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (optional)
1/4 cup tamari (soy sauce)
1/2 tsp. sage (or substitute rosemary &/or oregano)
1/2 tsp. marjoram
5 garlic cloves, pressed
pinch of cayenne pepper
spray olive oil for the baking sheet
Preheat over to 350F.
Chop greens and place in bottom of food processor, followed by cut up potatoes and carrots, then the remaining ingredients. Turn on the food processor. You may have to stop it a few times and push some of the ingredients back down to the bottom a few times.
Shape into patties (and bread if you like) and place on an oiled baking sheet. Bake 40-50 minutes, flipping once half way through cooking.
Makes ~8-12 patties.
