Vegetable patties with spinach and herbs

Ah, babies are unpredictable. The first time I made these vegetable patties, my son scarfed them down. Crispy and soft inside, I handed them to him hot off the stove and he couldn’t get enough. I was thrilled. It’s not like he doesn’t eat vegetables, but he’s given to bouts of pickiness and it always makes me happy when he eats more vegetables, you know? And all those lovely fresh herbs!

So like any mother, I made these patties again. But oh, the fickle nature of 1-year-olds. He gleefully smashed one between his hands, and watched it crumble to pieces.

I tried again. He turned his head as the patty approached. Some might have made it into his mouth. A significant amount made it onto the floor. An even larger amount was left over.

Fortunately, these aren’t only for children — there’s no reason adults shouldn’t enjoy them as well. Spinach and mixed herbs — dill, parsley, cilantro and green onions — add freshness, while cauliflower and zucchini lend sweetness. The vegetables are slowly stir-fried until lightly caramelized, before being formed into little patties and fried into bite-sized pieces with crispy exteriors.

Really, when my son doesn’t eat these, I shouldn’t be complaining. More for the rest of us, after all.

For about 18 patties, depending on how large you make them:

250 grams cauliflower (most of a small head)
250 grams zucchini (one medium zucchini)
150 grams onion (half a large onion)
250 grams fresh spinach (about half a bunch)
big handful fresh dill (1/2 cup chopped, loosely packed)
big handful fresh parsley (1/2 cup chopped, loosely packed)
5-6 stalks green onions (3/4 cup chopped, loosely packed)
small handful fresh cilantro (1/4 c chopped, loosely packed)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
pinch cumin (1/8 teaspoon)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs or matzo meal
2 eggs
oil for frying

Finely chop the cauliflower and onion, and coarsely grate the zucchini. Put the vegetables in a pan with some oil for frying, and let cook until all the vegetables are lightly browned and somewhat soft (I know people generally start with onions, but I really don’t think it matters here — everything needs to lightly caramelize). The pan will be quite full, so you’ll have to stir intermittently so that all the vegetables cook.

Chop the spinach and the herbs (dill, parsley, green onion and cilantro), and add to the pan. Cook for a few more minutes, stirring to incorporate, until the greens have become limp and reduced in volume.

Scoop the vegetables into a bowl, and mix with the spices (salt, pepper, paprika and cumin), the breadcrumbs or matzo meal, and the egg.

Reheat the pan on a medium flame, adding enough oil to cover the base. Scoop spoonfuls of the batter into the pan, pressing down slightly to flatten into patties. Once they’re browned on the bottom, flip to cook on the other side. Once both sides are cooked, remove to a plate lined with paper towels to blot up extra oil.

Gordon Ramsay’s Halloumi, Zucchini and Herb Cakes

These interesting halloumi and vegetable cakes are delicious and a nice vegetarian option to make for a simple lunch or supper.

The recipe is based on Gordon Ramsay’s recipe from his app:

I used 250g of halloumi rather than the 500g in the recipe for a more “vegetable” cake.


2 medium carrots, peeled and grated

1 zucchini (courgette), grated

250g halloumi cheese, grated

2 spring onions, finely chopped

2 free-range eggs lightly beaten

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Put the grated carrots and zucchini (courgettes) in a colander and sprinkle with a large pinch of salt to draw out the moisture.

Place over a bowl to drain for 5 minutes, then tip into a clean tea towel and squeeze out all the excess water.

Put the haloumi, carrot mixture, spring onions, coriander and mint into a bowl, season and mix together. Add the beaten eggs and mix well, then stir in 2 tbsp of the breadcrumbs. The mixture should be firm enough to form into patties, if it’s not, add some more breadcrumbs. the moisture content from the vegetables can be variable.

Shape the mixture into 6-8 large cakes or smaller of you prefer. To help shape the haloumi cakes place a large spoonful of the mix onto a spoon and press against your hand and squeeze out any excess liquid. Leave in the fridge uncovered for at least half an hour to firm up.

Heat a large heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Add a dash of oil and fry the haloumi cakes until dark golden and crisp on either side.

Serve with some coriander to garnish and a dash of sweet chili sauce.

These veggie patties are so incredibly versatile that you can make them a regular lunch or dinner choice without getting bored. Try them over a salad, with steamed vegetables, topped with salsa, in a lettuce or cabbage leaf, dipped into the natural ketchup recipe in Cleanse to Heal, or any other way you can dream up.

Carrots: A quick liver refueling source of glucose that&rsquos attached to minerals and vitamins. When carrots are eaten raw, they&rsquore higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms.

Zucchini: Soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.

Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it&rsquos precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution.

Carrot, Zucchini and Potato Patties

  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the potatoes and carrots in the basket, cover, and steam for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat and cool completely.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Grate the zucchini and place it in a muslin cloth or nut milk bag to squeeze out all the water. Make sure that the zucchini is very dry otherwise it will take the patties longer to crisp up in the oven. Add it to a mixing bowl. Grate the potatoes and carrots and place them in the bowl with the grated zucchini. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and paprika and mix until combined.

Form the mixture into about 8 patties and place them on the baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook for 45 to 60 minutes, until browned and crispy, flipping them halfway through. Allow the patties to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before eating so they firm up.

Absolutely not. No one reviewing this recipe has actually made these burgers, they’re just commenting on how lovely your vacation photos look. The recipe itself is bonkers - it’s so mushy, there is zero chance of getting this to work on a grill. It needs egg, or breadcrumbs, or both to work. Next.

Orange, Herb, and Vegetable Patties - Recipes


  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 courgette, grated
  • 500g halloumi cheese, grated
  • 2–4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint leaves
  • 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2–4 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • Olive oil, for frying
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the chilli dressing

  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced on the diagonal
  • 2 cm piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely diced
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 2–3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2–3 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


To make the halloumi cakes put the carrots and courgette in a sieve or colander and sprinkle with a decent pinch of salt to draw out the moisture. Place over a bowl to drain for 5 minutes, then tip into a clean tea towel and squeeze out all the excess water.

Put the halloumi, carrot mixture, spring onions, coriander and mint into a bowl, season and mix together. Add the beaten eggs and mix well, then stir in 2 tablespoons of the breadcrumbs. The mixture should be sticky enough to form into patties, if it’s not sticky enough add some more breadcrumbs. Shape the mixture into 8 larger patties about 1cm thick, or 16 smaller ones. To help shape the patties place a large spoonful of the mix onto a spoon and press against your hand and squeeze out any excess liquid. Leave in the fridge uncovered for at least 20–25 minutes to firm up.

Meanwhile, put all the dressing ingredients into a bowl and stir well until the sugar has dissolved. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.

Once you’re ready to cook, heat a large heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. Add a dash of oil and fry the halloumi cakes (in batches if necessary) until dark golden and crisp on either side and hot all the way through.

Serve the cakes hot with spoonfuls of the chilli dressing over the top.
