Finger Food Recipe – Veggie Patties

I found this recipe on One Handed Cooks and love how it is so easy to make so I decided to give it a go. These veggie patties are a fantastic finger food idea and so versatile you can add in any vegetables you like. They are fantastic way of using up all your leftover veggies #stretchingthedollar.  I made a big batch of them this week and froze them in individual portions so I can throw a meal together quickly after work. I served them with some shredded chicken and avocado for my little girl, needless to say she devoured it within minutes!


  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon plain flour
  • 2 cups grated vegetables (see combination ideas below)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon grated cheese (omit for dairy free recipe)
  • Chopped parsley


  1. Squeeze grated vegetables to drain excess water.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the egg, flour, grated veggies, cheese and chopped parsley together.
  3. Heat about 2 tablespoon of oil on a non-stick frypan over medium heat. Place a heaped tablespoon of mixture on the hot pan and gently flatten using a spatula.
  4. Cook for a couple of minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy. Once cooked, rest on a paper towel to drain oil

Other veggie patty combinations:

  • Potato, onion and carrots
  • Zucchini, corn and potato
  • Carrot, sweet potato and zucchini
  • Peas, corn and parsnip


  • When using hard vegetables like carrot, sweet potato or potato, cook on low heat for longer.
  • The veggie patties are best eaten fresh but they can be frozen after cooking and reheated to serve.
