Wednesday’s Helping: Veggie Patties

Instead of raw, try heating things up

Chard is just one of the many veggies that can make yummy patties. We suggest substituting spinach, sweet potato tips, or snow pea tips instead if you can’t find Swiss chard. Heartier greens, such as broccoli, Chinese broccoli or broccoli raab, should be blanched then chopped before mixing and forming patties. Meanwhile, add a teaspoon of curry powder, turmeric, or paprika for more tasty oomph. Cooks can make elegant open-faced sandwiches in a pinch with larger patties. Chiilled Tzatziki sauce, cold veggie dips, or remoulade can provide a refreshing feel and flavorful contrast to veggie patties.
