Vegetable Patties (gluten free)

As a teenager I was a vegetarian for a while and one of the foods I loved were some form of Vegetable Grills, they inspire this recipe. That taste and love of vegetaraian food has never left me, if hubby would let me I’d be a vegetarian now but he loves he meat too much and I’m not going to cook 2 meals. So our compromise is to eat meat just a couple of times a week. Mainly because I do the cooking 😉

Even before I had seen this month Recipe Redux theme “A Play on Patties” I had this recipe idea lurking in the back of my head. A soft veggie pattie that is slightly crisp on the outside and oozing in the centre. These little beauties take some time to make but it’s a therapeutic fun task involving lots of squishing which is perfect for getting kids involved in.

I also needed this recipe to work for the whole family as that is how I cook. That now includes the 6 month old baby. His verdict – they were fun to chase around the highchair table and to squish, even more fun to drop bits of on the floor and he did eat a little too 😉

    I wouldn’t have thought to use cottage cheese. Great take on the veggie patty!

    These look amazing with the oozy cheese! Know what you mean about not cooking 2 meals…I tell my kids, “you get what you get and don’t make a fit!” (:
