Potatoes are Adam’s favourite vegetable- and I give him a hard time for it. The reason being is thatmy picky husband thinks if he has fries one day, he’s then had his vegetable intake for the day. Now don’t get me wrong, fries are my weakness and guilty pleasure, but I know they aren’t the healthiest and I know that they don’t take me anywhere near my vegetable quota for the day. Adam knows this too, he’s a smart man. But he likes to see me get all fired up trying to make a point that he needs to eat more veggies. It’s a constant debate in our house, which is why I thought I would combine Adam’s favourite vegetable (the potato), with some other yummy ingredients to produce a healthier option to the good old french fry. Hence, these Vegan Potato Cakes were born.
here are a few reasons why I love these Vegan Potato Cakes, so listen up!
- Who knew a potato patties recipe could be so easy to make? The ingredients used are basic and simple to find. You probably have them all in your pantry already. This recipe is super straightforward. The hidden broccoli is an added bonus and the perfect way to get some extra vitamins in.
- Let’s talk about the spicy mustard sauce. It adds a little heat to the vegan potato cakes and keeps your mouth watering for more. You can use honey to sweeten the sauce (if you aren’t vegan) or maple syrup if you are vegan. Although they both add different flavours to the sauce, you can’t go wrong with either choice.
- This potato patties recipe makes for the perfect addition at breakfast or dinner, or a delicious afternoon pick-me-up. They are vegan, loaded with fresh thyme, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. These shredded vegan potato cakes are a winner in the Picky Husband’s eyes, even though he knows there is broccoli in them!
So let the veggie debate seize while Adam and I munch on these shredded vegan potato cakes. And perhaps they will win over the taste buds of the picky eater in your household too ♥
